  1. The stem is -hārm- and the stem for water is -hār- but that ‘m’ doesn’t have any particular meaning. But, yes, they are related. Other pairs that share the same pattern: -nārm- ‘body’ and -nār- ‘all, whole’ and maybe -tōm- ‘measure’ and -tō- ‘why/because’. -hērm- ‘mud’ is likely also related to -hār-. It’s possible -kēm- ‘thumb’ and -kā- ‘deed’ share the same pattern, or they could both be from the same source as -āk- ‘finger’.

    You are welcome to create some sort of plausible derivation process if you like.
