Whoa! Hold your סוסים!
> In Exodus 8:1 The imperative "let my people go" שַׁלַּ֥ח<http://strongsnumbers.com/hebrew/7971.htm> shallach is a causative of "go" halach.
> Interesting that this primitive prefix SHA- causative shows up in Bantu languages as a causative suffix. Another discussion;-)
Um, that's pretty way off the mark. The shin is not an affix, but part of the root. Also, הלך ends with a kaph (כ), not a heth (ח). The two are very different letters and should not be confused. There is nothing here to suggest that שׁלח has anything to do with הלך. Yes, there is a Shaphel stem with causative shin prefix in some Semitic dialects, but that is certainly not what we have in the root שׁלח.
