Roots

Anglo-Saxon thynneis thought to come from a stretched thin Indo-European “root” ten (to stretch). 

The stretching terms at this root may be linked to NaDTaH (to extend - reverse TN – see   EXTEND). צנום   TSaNOOM    is lean, THIN or meager (Genesis41:23).TSaN[A]h means austere. More sharpness and thinness at TINE. The built-in opposite of this dental-nasal shrunkeness and meagerness is the nasal-dental stretching out seen at NET.
