Conventional wisdom says that human language is a
chaotic, usage-driven set of sounds we make to make
ourselves understood. Your language professors, texts
and reference books assume that language evolved after
gazillions of years from grunting, gesturing cavemen
had emerged from their monkey great-uncles.

It is inconceivable to most scholars that language in
its pristine form is actually a hard science, and one
displaying similar intelligent design as chemistry.
That pristine form is called Edenic by some maverick
researchers who are uncovering a universal human
language program based on Proto-Semitic as best
documented by Biblical Hebrew.

This brief article is a supplement to Chapter 7 of the
newly published (April 26, 2005) book entitled The
Origin of Speeches (see Amazon or the URLK above).
This chapter describes what even scholars of Hebrew
have denied – at least since the Middle Ages. I refer
to SUB-ROOTS, a phoneme or molecule of music and
meaning which is one letter smaller than the
convention three-letter roots of Hebrew words.
Because Edenic is the pre-Babel language scrambled to
create all other proto-languages (which continue to
break off into dialects), these sub-roots are relevant
to all human languages. In fact, the oldest languages,
like Chinese, can only be linked to Edenic (and thus
to the rest of the planet) with a solid grasp of these

The best documented sub-root thus far is
Bet-Lamed/B-L. Let us begin our acquaintance with
this sub-root with the first part of the “BALL” entry
found in The Word (1989, 1995, 2000) and in the e-word
CD dictionary:

For those following the spelling-specific
transliterations, here is a chart:
Key to romanized Hebrew:
Vowels in lower case. Root letters in Upper Case.

Aleph = A or ANY UPPER CASE VOWEL, Bet = B, Bhet = BH,
Gimel = G or J,
Dalet = D, Hey = H, Vav = V,W, OO or OA, Zayin = Z,
Het = [K]H or K [H],
Tet = DT, Yod = Y, Kahf = K, Khaf = KH, Lamed = L, Mem
= M, Noon = N,
Samekh = $, Ayin = bracketed, upper case [VOWEL] or
GH, Pey = P,
Phey = PH or F, Tsadi = TS (always read ST in
European), Koof = Q,
Raish = R, Shin = SH, Sin = S, Tahf = T, TH or (S)

BALL BahLahL Bet-Lamed-Lamed
ROOTS: The reconstructed, theoretical Indo-European
root of BALL is bhel (to blow, swell).
BaLOOM (swollen) and BaLaDT (to protrude – see
“BLOAT”) address a BL root of filling
or expanding. The BL in BULBOUS and BULKY things are
seen there.
Most Edenic words with Bet-Lamed/BL match the rolling,
mixed up sense of being all BALLED UP
in a BALL of confusion. The rolling ball offers no
stable surface; it is all a confounding chaos.
BaLaL is to confound (as human vocabulary was in
Genesis 11:9 with the BABBLE of Babel),
BaLOOL is to mingle together (Leviticus 2:5),
BiLeeYL (fodder, literally means ‘mixture”),
and BiLBOOL means confusion. See “BABBLE” (confused,
mixed up language).
Bilabial-liquid related words include [E]eRBaiL (to
mix, confuse) and Ayin-Resh-Bet terms
of mixing, confusing and swarming.

Unlike the discursive e-word entry, the words with the
Bet or Bhet-Lamed sub-root
(meaning: mixed, together) are alphabetized here:

(note: the first two Bet-Lamed words of mixing or
togetherness, appear in the “A-” entry
of Aleph as a negative prefix:

ABHaL, Aleph-Bhet-Lamed, means but, only (Genesis
42:21). Bet-Lamed means a mixture of components – see
“BALL.” A + BL could mean NOT mixed together with
others – as in “but” and “only.”
ABHeL, another Aleph-Bhet-Lamed word, means a mourner
or the verb to mourn – see “OWL” and “WAIL.” The noun
of mourning is AyBHeL. Once again the two-letter
sub-root is B-L togetherness (seen at “BALL” and the
world’s most popular sound for “two” – see Ruhlin in
The Origin of Speeches. Mourning is about feeling the
isolation of losing the two-ness, the relationship
with a loved one. The Bet-Lamed mix or relationship
has been negated (Aleph prefix) by death.
BaBHeL or Babel (Genesis 11:9) should need no
explanation as to why is has the Bet-Lamed of BALLED
up confounding confusion.
GeBHeL ( to braid, twist, wind two strands together –
Exodus 28:22) -- see [K]HeBHeL string, rope
and KeBHeL, cable, all twisted together in
increasing strengths following the sequence of the
Aleph-Bet -- see “CABLE.”
GiBHOOL (border – Genesis 10:19) both prevents two
jurisdictions from mixing, or it may be seen
as the area where two countries meet.
DaBHaL (pressed together, an Edenic root preserved in
Arabic, as in a DiBHeLaH, cake of dried figs –
Lexicon )
HeBHeL (a breath, later vanity, Ecclesiastes 1:14) --
a breath is a mixture of carbon and oxygen.
But the cavemen who allegedly developed language
did not know that?! Precisely.
Modular Edenic bears the Intelligent Design of
ZeBHeL (“he will dwell with me” -- Genesis 30:20 –
Lexicon, here we emphasize the togetherness)
[K]HeBHeL, a string or rope, Job 18:10, is threads
twisted together (see both 1. GeBHeL, braid and
2. KeBHeL, cable, all twisted together in
increasing strengths following the Aleph-Bet –
more at “CABLE.”)
DTeBHeL is to immerse one thing in another – see
KeBHeL, strong rope, cable (see GeBHeL, braid and
K[H]eBHeL, string, all twisted together
in increasing strengths following the Aleph-Bet --
see “CABLE”)
MaBHooL (the flood of Genesis 7) was a cataclysmic
geological mixture of biblical proportions: all the
divisions of upper and lower waters were
NaBHaL is a churl who lacks propriety, an impious fool
who mixes the sacred and profane
(Isaiah 32:5 – see “VILE.”
NaBHaL is also a lyre (Psalms 150:3), on which, like a
harp, notes are mixed –
rather than the plucking of single notes.
SH’BHeeYL is a path that links different areas (Psalms
77:20). The opposite of GiBHOOL, border.
TeyBHaiL is this world of mixed dimensions and
elements. The same Tahf-Bhet-Lamed, TeBHeL,
means spice, confusion or lewdness. The
“confusion” belongs here, as seen in TaBhLOOL,
mixture, blending. Spices mix flavors in culinary
mixtures. The “lewdness” refers to illicit couplings
or sexual mixtures (Leviticus 18:23).

The Edenic two-letter sub-root does not work at the
beginnings of Bet-Lamed words. Our Bet-Lamed sub-root
of a ball or mixture is also seen when “weak letters”
(Hey,Vav, Ayin) are between the Bet and Lamed:

BaHaL has a Hey separating the Bet and Lamed. BaHal,
means to be alarmed, dismayed or “confounded.”
(Lexicon -- Genesis 45:3) BeHaLaH is terror
(Leviticus 20:19). Variations are BaLaH and BaLHaH
(terror). In all its forms, it is expected that
confusion and mixed emotions are involved.
BOOL, Bet-Vav-Lamed, (Isaiah 44:19) is like a papal
BULL, plural BULLA and BULLAE.
These are BALLS of soft lead, clay, etc. flattened
by a seal for authenticated official documents
– see “BULLETIN.” Today, BOOL is used to mean a
postage stamp.
B[A]’ahL , Bet-Ayin-Lamed, can mean sexual cohabiting
– like the BL in TeyBHaiL above.
If this sense developed from the sense of mastery
and acting as husband (seen at “BULLY”),
the interaction of dominant and passive forces
still could warrant our Bet-Lamed theme of

There is an argument, going back to medieval Hebrew
grammarians, if Hebrew roots are of 2 or 3 letters.
This and that are words of the living G-d. Three for
grammar, two for meaning.
