big, when ueca(N) becomes weg(OHG) and the old frisian, wei, meaning being big, or far, and goes into english as, way, it has already formedthe english word big from weg, and we have the w/b flip, and when ue/ueca/uecatl(N) go into greek, which has no w, we get, ek/ekas/ecati(gk)=she who works from afar, hecate, goddess of wind/weaving/planet venus and mother of proto-christ, quetzalcoatl,
morning star. if we take uentli(N)=ofrenda(sp), and goes into latin as, ventus/wind(E), it also goes into greek as bema(gk)=the altar
step(on the way to uentli(N)/offering), and bema(gk) goes on within
greek to become the word dance, or baile(sp).
