English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word







[(A)-KH- R]


rear, back


CARRACK (galleon or ship) is from Greek kerkos (tail) + oura (tail, rear).  Both Greek words may be from guttural and silent forms of Het-Resh. אחור AhK[H]OAR means rear, buttocks, back (Ezekiel8:16).  אחורי AK[H]OAReeY is rear or posterior. Arabic qurqur (a merchant ship) is not considered the etymon.


URAEUS (snake figure) is from Greek oura (tail); Indonesian ekor means tail. AhK[H]OAR is a fine Edenic source for  “tail.”  There’s also the anagramic Turkish version: kuyruk.Het-Resh shifts to HL in the tails of Danish and Norwegian: hale.  Het-Resh gave Hawaiian huelo (tail) and okole (buttocks).  M’OoK[H]aR (late) recalls Japanese okur(eru), meaning to become late or to become backward. Ura means back or reverse. Another Japanese word fromAleph-Het-Resh is  -kara (since, after) from  AK[H]ahR (after).  AK[H]OARaH means backwards. ARCHAIC, ARCAEOLOGY and ARCHE(TYPE) may be AKR → ARK terms of backwardness. AK[H]ahR (after - Genesis9:28) and AK[H]OARaH (backwards) may link up to the prefixes RE- and UR- (primitive).

The IE “root” ors (backside, buttocks) is also from Aleph-Het-Resh back sides. This root is said to give English several URO-, -UROUS words, as well as CYNOSURE and SQUIRREL.

The antonym of Het-Resh retrogression is seen in the RK element of progression at DIRECTION.

“And He brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.” (JPS)
