Among the first things to be expressed in words there certainly must have been the human hand and some of its basic activities. Therefore we start with the simple two-consonant root "C P", in Hebrew pronounced "KAPH".

 

We want to see if we find, on the basis of this root, actions of the human hand, expressed in extended roots. In this list, C stands- for "consonant" in general.
