יַחֲסִית

The root י.ח.ס appears in late Biblical Hebrew, where it means family connection: this is the origin of the Hebrew/Yiddish word ייחוס (yichus) meaning genealogy

In Modern Hebrew, this root appears in words that have to do with relativity, so that relatively-speaking or relative to is יחסית .

For example:

יחסית לשנים קודמות אין הרבה הזמנות השנה.

Relative to previous years, there aren’t lots of orders this year.
