Roots

A ZYME is a ferment or ENZYME, from Greek zyme (a leaven).

    חמץ [K]HaMahTS is to leaven (Exodus12:34);   חמץ [K]HaMeTS is leavened or soured bread or grains. The given Indo-European “root” is yeu (to blend, mix food), taking in -ZYME and ZYMO- words.  The most significant opposite of   חמץ [K]HaMaiTS (leavened bread) is מצה   MaTSaH (unleavened bread), related by M231 S-G. 


Branches

YaZaM is to initiate. Reversing this fricative-nasal sound and sense gets us to TSaMa[K]H (to grow upwards). Antonyms include TSeeMTSOOM (condensing, contraction). [K]HaMeTS is Het-Mem + Mem-Tsadi.  Two chief elements in allowing dough to become [K]HaMeTS (unlawful to have on Passover) is [K]HaM (heat – see AMITY) and MeeYTS (liquid – see MEAD).  Indonesian reverses Tsadi-Mem for asam (sour).            See MASS and SOUR


Bible Verses

Exodus 12:34 וישׂא העם את־בצקו טרם יחמץ משׁארתם צררת בשׂמלתם על־שׁכמם׃

“And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading-troughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.”
