Is "penis" the root of the word happines?



Answers:
In all likelihood, no. If you want to search for the root of the word, you have to start by removing anything that is added to the stem of the word within the language system. Happiness is a derived word, which comes from adding the suffix -ness to the word happy, just as has been done with sadness, numbness, or rottenness. The root of the word 'happiness' is therefore the root of the word 'happy'. This is most likely a real, inherited English word, whereas 'penis' has been borrowed from Latin, so chances are next to nothing that there is a connexion between the two.

Ain't I a spoilsport for taking a spoof comment seriously?
pi is the root of happiness.
