Roots

VETO is said to be from Latin vetare (to forbid). VETO shares most of the meanings of בטל  BaDTaiL or VaDTaiL (to stop - Ecclesiastes12:3) and  בטל BeeDTaiL or [V]eeDTaiL (to suspend, abolish, cancel). For antonyms of Bhet-Tet upholding, see FAITH and WED.


Branches

Like VETO, VOID and VITIATE (to legally invalidate), Bhet-Tet-L:amed/

 BH -DT- L,  is largely a legal term. See VOTE for antonyms. ABATE may derive from the sense of stopping here.

We may have to VETO or VOID blurted promises or lies.  HeeTBaDaH is to be caught lying or to come to nothing. BaDTaH is to speak rashly. The unknown source of BLOT (to cancel or erase) might be our BTL with a #2-#3 letter swap.   See BAD
