Roots

SUPPER and SUP are traced to Anglo-Saxon supan (to sup, drink), the Indo-European base seu (something damp and soft, sap) and the IE “root” seua (to take liquid). The drinking part of the etymology is taken up at "SIPHON;" SUP also means to eat or prepare SUPPER. $aPHaH is to feed; $iPHaY is the Aramaic counterpart. $iP(H)eeYaH and  מספוא   Mi$'PoWE mean animal food or fodder ( Genesis24:25).


Branches

Several SP terms of supplying are seen at SUFFICE. Mi$eeYBaH is a banquet. One may SIP or SUP from SahUPH or SahP (goblet, bowl). TSaPa[K]HaT is a dish or vessel; TSaPeeY[K]HeeYT is a cake. $aPHAh is an alternate spelling of the verb “to feed.”  Akkadian sapper is a wine vessel.  SIPPING with the SaPHaH (lip) sounds related to our SUPPING.
