A sound or summons
A call is a loud utterance or signal. קול QOAL
(voice, sound) might better be rendered as signal or CRY in Exodus19:19
when the "voice" of the ram's horn blares. A companion,
guttural-liquid term, shifting liquids from ל Lamed/L to Resh/R,
is קרא QaRAh is to cry out, annouce or read
see CRY. It appears with קול QOAL in many verses such as Isaiah40:3
- "The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness" - קול QOAL.
Old Icelandic kaller is to call or cry; the Indo-European base gal
means to scream or shriek. Two relevant Indo-European roots and their derivatives
follow. Reversing Lamed-Koof brings in various language words at LICK.
1) gal (to
call, shout). CALL, CLATTER. 2) kel (to shout). ACCLAIM, CALENDAR,
CLAIM, CLAIRVOYANCE, CLAMOR, CLASS, CLEAR, CONCILIATE, COUNCIL, DECLAIM,
DECLARE, ECCLESIA(STES), ECLAIR, EXCLAIM, HALE, LOW, NOMENCLATURE, PROCLAIM,
make a better translation for QOAL in Exodus32:17- the
"noise" or "cry" of war in the camp as heard from afar.

words come from K etymons, so that HAIL, HALLOO, HELLO and HOLLER may belong
here as well see HAIL.
To CURSE is
to CALL down evil upon someone. If CURSE isn't from Ga[A[hR (rebuke, threaten
Isaiah 17:13 -- S-G), it may be from QaLeL (curse) - which is the opposite of
HaLeL (to praise, HAIL, say HALLELUJAH). קלס Qee Lai$ is to praise in Post Biblical
Hebrew; קלס QeeLai$ in Jeremiah 20:8 is the
opposite, mockery, scorn and threaten. Polish klac (curse)
recalls קלס QeeLai$ (curse). This
guttural-liquid-fricative term of scornful threat is nearly identical in meaning
to CURSE and CURSE has no Indo-European root.
for "voice" are from QOAL (voice see CALL). They include golos
in Russian, hlas in Czech and koe in Japanese (which has
typically dropped an end-liquid, the "L). Noise, another meaning of QOAL,
is halas in Polish. The common Koof/Q shifting to H principle is
evident, keeping in mind that graphically and audibly the Koof/Q is an extended
the French term for "noise" or "clap") may be influenced by
QOALOAT (thunder). "Call" is kalu in Australian Aborigine. See
Genesis 27:22 on, with the voice or speech of Jacob that Isaac heard, any
guttural-liquid might echo the Edenic Qoof-Vav-Lamed.
Other liquid-guttural speaking terms
include LaK[H](aSH) and RaK[H](ASH) (to whisper), [E]eLaiG (to stammer--
Isaiah 32;4), LaGHaZ (to slander; speak a foreign tongue), RaK([H]eL) (to
slander), La[E]G (to mock, laugh at, see LAUGH Psalms 22:8), La[A]G
(stammering speech Isaiah 28:11) and LiGLaiG (to mock).

various Indo-European roots you'll find derivatives of Greek legein (to say,
speak) and Latin loqui (to speak) such as DIALOGUE, ELOCUTION, ELOQUENT,
LECTURE, LEXICAL, LEXICOGRAPHER and LOQUACIOUS.
LINGO and LINGUISTICS may be nasalized (added N) L-G words; the AHD files them
under Indo-European root dnghu (tongue). LOQUTION, CIRCUMLOCUTION, COLLOQUIUM,
GRANDILOQUENCE, INTERLOCUTION, MAGNILOQUENT, SOLILOQUY and VENTRILOQUISM have
been placed at Indo-European root tolk(w) (to speak). Like the speaking roots leg
and loqui, they are likely reversals of QoaL, voice see CALL. Uluka
is wailing in Basque; kieli is language in Finnish; lyak is
to cry in Tagalog.
