Roots

The Indo-European “root” of UP is upo (under, up from under, over). The strange definition is an attempt to allow SUB (under) to be a cognate of ABOVE.

עף [A]hPh and [O]oWPH is to up and fly (whether as birds, Proverbs 23:6, or arrows, Psalms 91:5). עוף [O]WPH is a bird or fowl (Genesis 1:20).
