According to Guichard, all words are simple and their substance consists of only three radicals. In Hebrew the word "batar" means to divide. "Batar" produces "tarab" which becomes the Latin "tribus" which turns into "distribuo" and "dividere." "Zacen" means old. Rearranging the radicals..."zanec" from which derives Latin "senex." Further rearranging yields "cazen" from which derives the Oscan word "casnar" which is the root of Latin "canus" which means elder.
