DOCK is related to the Greek Δοχή (doche)

The word DOCK (the area of water between two piers or alongside a pier that receives a ship for loading, unloading, or repairs; a pier, a wharf) is related to the Greek word Δοχή (doche; a place for receiving or holding the ships) from the verb Δέχομαι (dechome; to receive, to contain).

In modern Greek
α) δοχείο: pot, container, receptacle, dispenser [dochio]
β) δέχομαι: receive, contain [dechome]
γ) ντόκος: dock [dokos]
