Hi, I'd like to know if the word "סח" is related to the verbs "הוסח", or "להסיח" (i.e. one of their conjugations), since on websters-online-dictionary I found it means deflection, deviation, diversion, removal, turning aside, but in some other online dictionaries I found it means to say, speak, talk, converse.
Thank you

Hey there!

So the word סח has only one definition and is to say, to tell.
But when you use the word in those conjugations- להסיח הוסח it means to take someone attention.
There's a saying in Hebrew- להסיח את דעתו/דעתה
And it means- To draw someone attention while one is doing something.
Like if you were learning for this test and I came in with food- הסחתי את דעתך or האוכל הסיח את דעתך.

Hopefully my explanation helped you :)
