  wanaks           “king”                       Greek

    This one badly needs an explanation. 
    According to Benveniste, wanaks is subordinate(?) to the 
    basileus. So I imagined some kind of opposition major 
    vs. minor, order vs. chaos, Forces of Law vs. Serpent. 
    But that's as close as I get. Yes, I know. Perhaps wanaks 
    is someone else's king, the other side's king?
    Of course, this side's king, the right king, is H-r-g.

    metathesis to n-H-s- in

  na:Ha:sh        “snake”                            Hebr. 
  from the noun “snake” some verbs are derived:

  a) in the sense “choke, frighten"
  H-n-k2 in:
  Henkat          “fright”                           Ethiopian
  H-n-k           “frighten”                         Ethiopian
  Hænkétkete      “take fright”                      Tigre   
  possibly West Semitic H-n-k
  H-n-k           “strangle”                         Hebrew
  Henak           “he choked”                        Syriac
  Henikå          “anxious”                          Syriac
  however this has also h2 and might go with South Semitic X-n-k     
  b) in the sense “pursue"
  *H-n-k1 in:
  Hanas^un  originally 
                  “snake, reptile animal, 
                   noxious reptile”                  Arab.
    from which a denominative verb
  Hanasha         “he hunted, sought to catch or capture 
                  (venomous or noxious reptiles or the like,
                   such as scorpions or serpents)”   Arab.

  Angel            the brother of Dan, according to the chronicler 
                   Saxo Grammaticus (appr 1170 AD)
  Angeln           today, landscape in Schleswig from which the 
                   Anglians emigrated to England, according to 
                   Beda Venerabilis; then, possibly the name of 
                   all of Schleswig-Holstein, situated between 
                   Denmark and Saxony.

  The importance of Scheswig-Holstein is that it controls the place 
  where the Jutland peninsula is at its narrowest and hence there 
  was a strong flow of goods that way, from the North Sea up the 
  Treene River, over land to the market town of Hedeby, and on the 
  Schlei inlet to the Baltic. This route was preferred since the 
  journey around Jutland was dangerous to small ships. Several 
  places in North America you find "portages", e.g. Portage des
  Sioux. These are places where people used to transport goods
  from one river system to another. This route across Jutland
  peninsula is a portage.
  The etymology of "Angeln" has been disputed. One suggestion derives 
  it from the shape of the Schlei inlet: narrow and winding. Another 
  (mine, actually) would see the name as designating the place where 
  the Jutland peninsula is at its narrowest. But suppose there was a 
  connection between the Naga people and the "Angli"? In that case 
  the English people would be doomed to roam the seas forever. This 
  is of course silly, so let's disregard it.

  As an aside, Dan and Angel were descendants of a king Skjold (Shield)
  who as an infant came to Denmark alone in a ship.

     commonplace word as "snow", look what happened to the word for
     "word", "verbum" in Italian and French "parola", "parole" 
     (< "parabola"), replaced by a Greek word from the religious manners 
     of speech of the early Christian communities.

  From nettles can be obtained fibres, which can be used for weaving 
  cloth. They have been recovered from a Bronze Age tomb in Denmark, 
  and were also used for cloth in Denmark in the textile (and 
  otherwise) shortage in WWII.
TP :
  Presumably they have been used also for sewing, so that a connection
  with *neH- “sew” is possible.

  i.e. originally something like *H-gw-n- H-n-gw- ? That would be

  Comment: Cf AT*[i](?)kuk, *[i](?)ku? “bend/bent, arched, crooked” 
  Previously compared with PAN 
  (D38) *hi?kuk “bent, crooked” and 
  (B173) *(C,t,T)iku? “bend, curve” 
  Note that in the ACD, Blust cites the AN roots 
  *-ku(q) “bend, curve”, 
  *-kuk “bent, hunched over”, and 
  *-ku? “bend, curve” 
  At the PAustric level, the “bend, curve” root was probably 
  *kV, with *kuk and *kuq suffixed derivatives thereof. 
  Affixation of the latter produced *kunk and *kunq, whence *ku?.
