Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” for ZUCCINI.  ZUCCHINI, the cucumber-like gourd, is from the diminiative (-ini suffix) of an Italian  gourd, zucca.   QeeSHOOE is the cucumber or gourd of Numbers 11:5.  Reverse the Koof-Shin root to hear the fricative shift of Shin to Z.  The crunch of these hard garden vegetables comes from QaSHeH, hard, stiff – see CASEFY and ENCASE.


Branches

The Syriac is QaSHOOTAh, the Punic is kassou, and Greek sikuos (cucumber) sounds like that other gourd, SQUASH, that came from American Indian – see SQUASH.   The diminutive suffix with an N is from words like אישון EeYSHOAN

( rendered “pupil”of the eye ), literally a reflected miniature in the eye, a  little איש   EEYSH, man (Genesis 2:24).
