Roots

SUCCESS means “ not going under, “ but the given etymon of SUCCESS is Latin sub (under) + cedere (to go). Succedere is "going beneath." The KD "going" term is from¬† QaDahM (to go forward). Latin succedere also means "following after," and SUCCESS can depend upon whom we replace or inherit. It is difficult to see how the prefix SUC- (which means "under" in words like SUCCINCT and SUCCOR) or SUS- (a prefix meaning "under" in words like SUSPECT) is a variation of Latin sub (under) - why not drop the B of "sub" if "sub-ceed" or "sub-cor" were so hard to pronounce? The Hebrew "sub" may be underneath all of this.¬† (S)aK[H]ahS or TaK[H]ahS is "under" in Genesis1:7 – see SOUTH. Elsewhere the term means "in place of" (as in a SUCCESSOR). An abbreviated form used in prefixes is Tahf-Tahf/ that or Sahf-Sahf/ (S)ah(S).
