The word VERBOTEN is addressed in the entry: BID

English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word









proclaim or utter words


To BID is to command, declare, say or tell. In Middle English beden is to announce, although the Indo-European “root” ascribed to BID, bheudh (making aware), doesn't infer commanding or inviting.

  בטא BaDTAh or (V)aDTaH is to proclaim or UTTER words – Numbers 30:7 ;   בטוי BeeDTOOY means "pronouncing" or "expression."    Other connotations of BID are propositioning and inviting;             פתה     PeeTaH is to seduce with words.


BeeDTAoWN is a publication. A double bilabial-denatl term is PiDTPaiDT (chatter, idle talk).  DaBeR (to speak, command) reverses the BD; a reversal of Tsadi-Vav, TSaV (com­mand) is similar.

BEADLE (town crier), BODE, BUDDHA, OMBUDSMAN and VERBOTEN are linked to BID by the Indo-European “root”. BAIT (lure, entice) and PATOIS (a dialect) may also be added. If Japanese kotoba (word) doesn't relate to KiTaBH (letters, writing, script), reversing the Japanese term shows an affinity to BaDTaH (to utter words).

BEADLE was listed above, as if this lowly church employee made announcements.  Spanish bedel (servant, porter) reinforces the point that the BEADLE is a silent custodian with a different etymon.  [E]BHeD, servant – Genesis 12:16).

Latin fatus (to speak) appears in words like PREFACE. FATE, CONFESS and PROFESS are related. To cry out is awat in Maya Indian.  Latin fari (to speak) is not linked to  bilabial-liquid words like DaBeR (see WORD). It is listed as the source of  AFFABLE, FABLE and INEFFABLE, and the Latin is traced to Indo-European “root” bha- 2 (to speak). This hypothetical root echoes our Bet-Tet etymon, especially with alleged cognates like FATE, INFA(N)T, INFA(N)TRY and PREFACE. The nasalized INFA(N)T is AiN (without) BaDTAh (utterance – Numbers 30:7 – there’s a bilabial shift too).  For a better etymology of INFANTRY than the given sense of an army of infants, see BASIS.

PeeYOODT (POETRY, liturgical verse of piety) is a later, Mishnaic word, but links easily with the above Hebrew termsofexpression and utterance. Pyet (to sing in Russian) doesn't support the current etymology of POET(RY) which cites Greek poiein (to make).

The Indo-European “root” wed (to speak) is another derivative of Bhet-TET/ V-DT. The root speaks to words like COMEDY, MELODY, ODE, PARODY, RHAPSODY (see RHAPSODY) and TRAGEDY. Pidato is-speech in Indonesian.
