Last week's thread, week 38 - April 4-9, 2021, below.

#language #etymology #YomHaatzmaut
comes from the strength of bones.
This word also developed the meaning of "essence, self," bc bones are the essense of the body (as in, "in my bones", be'Atsmi = "myself"). Then came the word atsma'UT, "independence," i.e., reliance on oneself. 2/2
