_______________________________________________

(MO to Lieven, 1/09/2012):  Words for bricklayer, roof maker, plumber, and so on are all based on the verb {mutlh}, meaning "construct, assemble, put together".  Someone who does this, then, is a {mutlhwI'}.  [...]  The idea is that a {mutlhwI'} puts things together. ...  If you did say {tlhIm mutlh} ("he/she assembled a carpet"), that would mean there were pieces of fabric (or squares of carpet?) that got put together (sewn together?) to make a carpet or rug.
