Roots

WIZENED (shriveled) is from Anglo-Saxon wisnian (to become dry),  from Germanic weis or wis, allegedly from Indo-European “root” wei (to wither).   יבש Ya[V]aiSH means dry, to become dry (Genesis8:14); הוביש HOA[V]eeYSH means make to dry up, or make to wither.

The    י Yod is a weak letter that often drops out; V and W are identical in many languages; Edenic ש  Shin often becomes an S, or here a Z.  For the wet and flowing antonym of a reversed bilabial-fricative – see SEEP.

Branches

The Indo-European “root” wes means wet; this VS/WS antonym appears in Edenic terms like   דבש D’[V]ahSH (honey, honey dew, the camel's watery hump).


Bible Verses
