Roots

Latin supplex means humble, submissive. These same connotations apply for SHaP(H)aiL (humble, lowly - Isaiah2:9, 13:11 and 57:15).


Branches

The word is often considered to mean "folding under." See "SOFA" for the SP initial element. The etymology goes on to trace the PL of SUPPLE to Latin plicare (to fold, double up). The "pliant" connotations are taken up at COUPLE.
