Roots

WREN, the large class of troglodytic song birds of the Northern Hemisphere, is only traced back to Anglo Saxon wrenna. Old English runian means to whisper; the Germanic source of Finnish runo means song or poem.

רנה ReeNaH means a song or prayer (Psalm 17:1).  See WORM and WRONG for other ר-

 initial-Resh words that become English WR words. 


Branches

There’s a WREN BABBLER.  A WREN TIT and a WREN WARBLER. No creature sings like the bird.  Greek ornis, bird, is an RN singing term that gave English 25 ORNITHO- words like ORNITHOLOGY, the study of birds..   רננים RiNaNiM means ostriches, derived from their cry – Job 39:13.  Rana is a frog in Italian and Spanish. Frogs take up the song when the birds go to sleep.  Edenic has a  צפור/צפרדע   T SeePOAR/TSPHaRD[A]ya  bird/frog connection.

CORONACH, from Irish ranach, is a dirge for bagpipes. RIME and RYHME (neither of which was given an IE “root”) may be related to our poetic, chanting etymon. Yoruba erin means laughter; oran is song in Gaelic. Reversing RN for Oriental terms, norae is a song in Korean, and inori is prayer in Japanese.

רנן    RaNeN is also rendered “rang” in Job 39:23, and “shout” in the second definition in the Lexicon .  Neither RANG nor RANT have Indo-European “root”s.  If RANG were merely echoic, a language other than Germanic would have had it. Irish ran, to make a noise, is not more specific in meaning nor spelling as to make a better etymon.
