Roots

To "put the KIBOSH on" something is to squelch, veto or put an end to it.  This slang term is of uncertain origin, though Webster's suspects a Yiddish version of Germanic keibe (carrion).

In Genesis1:28  KoBHahSH is rendered "to master" or "subdue."  KeeBOOSH, the noun form, means "conquest."  The Kahf-Bet/Bhet-Shin/Sin root is seen at OVIS, where the quintessentially docile, domesticated or cowed creature is the KeBHeS, lamb.


Branches

Related K-BH terms include  KHoBHahSH (to imprison) and, another guttural-bilabial,  GoBH(ahR) (to conquer).

Reverse K-BH for the Indo-European “root” weik (to conquer, to fight) - the source of (CON)VINCE, EVICT, INVINCIBLE, VANQUISH, VICTOR and WIGHT.  Latin vinco,.to conquer, first allows us to see how the Kahf-Bet of Ka(V)aSH was reversed and nasalized (extra N) – the Shin is audible in VANQUISH, but not in INVINCIBLE.  Not surprisingly, Italian vincere is to vanquish,  In light of the Ke(V)eS (lamb) and Ko(V)aSH (conquer) connection, the DaVinci code here could be said to be “the lamb.”   Kofu is to conquer in Chinese. In Japanese KVS reverses to seifuku (subjugate, conquer).  KaBHaH is to be QUENCHED or extinguished, when thirst of fire is put out

– see QUENCH.   The built-in antonym is Kahf-Vav-Hey, to burn.

The reconstructed Indo-European “root” gwes is the given source of ASBESTOS;the root means "to extinguish.”  Ka(V)aH, to extinguish is closely related to Ka(V)aSH, to subdue.

See QUASH and "VICTOR (A).”
