Part VI: Etymology of the word Anatolia: Greek word derives from Sumer language as do many others like Uranos, Helios, Ana


By Mehmet Kurtkaya, Published on November 16, 2018

PART V: Is it the Caucasus mountains or the Taurus / Zagros ? Indo-European Homeland Proven!

PART IV: English, Greek, Latin and other Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish

PART III: Sun and sky worship, its linguistic implications, the Bull cult and the words for Ox, Cow and Taurus

PART II: Incontrovertible proof: Water, Father, and Mother: Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish.

PART I: Original Homeland of the Indo-Europeans

Etymology of the word Anatolia: Greek word derives from Sumer language as do many others

Anatolia is the name used for Turkey by the Greeks in ancient times. The derivation of this word is in line with origins of the Greek civilization.

Let's first look at the Wiktionary article for Anatolia

"From Medieval Latin Anatolia, from Ancient Greek ἀνατολή (anatolḗ, “sunrise, place from where the sun rises, the east”), from ἀνατέλλω (anatéllō, “I rise”), from ἀνά (aná, “up”) + τέλλω (téllō, “I perform, accomplish, rise”), because Anatolia was east of Greece. "

The above etymology is uniform in all online sources including Dictionary, and Etymologyonline. In Turkey too, this is the etymology accepted by academics.

I will challenge this etymology with firm, written evidence from Sumerian cuneiform records.

The etymology above is partially correct because it correctly states that "Anatolia" is a term used by Greeks for Turkey's major landmass, and it derives from Greek word "Anatole" which means "sunrise", and "east" in Greek. There are many words in Greek of Sumerian and Ugur (Hurrian) origin, and one of them is the word "Anatole". Moreover, the explanation as ana+tello maybe a late Greek derivation from Sumerian, or a result of a linguistic study, rather than an original derivation.

Let's now look at the Greek word "Anatole" through Sumerian Language, by using Sumerian - English dictionary at University of Pennsylvania and Ataturk's Sun Language Theory that I have proven:

First let's look at the word sunrise in Sumerian from Online Sumerian Dictionary at University of Pennsylvania:

utu'e [SUNRISE] wr. utu-e3 "sunrise"

Ut/Utu=sun and e=raise, using agglutination, additive property of Sumerian Utu'e= Utu+e=Sun+Raise= Sunrise

So the derivation of the word is by addition of two words, exactly like in English, addition of sun and rise, hence sunrise.

Now let us construct the Greek word Anatole by using most basic Sumerian words related to the sky and sky objects and another Sumerian word for rise:

An=Sky
Ut=Sun
il=Rise

Let us add these words An (sky)+ Ut (sun) +Il (rise) > Anutil which is the same as the Greek word for sunrise and East: Anatole.

The minor vowel sound changes are known to occur. And the original Turkish "ul" instead of "il" may have been used. Moreover the Greek word "Ana" means "up" and Sumerian word "Ana" means "upper". They are the same and derive from the same Sumerian word for Sky/heaven, AN! So even Ana+Ut+il or Ana+ut+ul is a possibility.

Moreover the Sumerian reconstruction is like a verb final sentence: "Sky raises the Sun" is written in Sumerian Turkish as "Sky Sun raises" per SOV word order. This derivation is in harmony even with the grammar of Sumerian, something that's not even needed to prove the Sumerian derivation of the Greek word "Anatole".

The Sumerian root words An, Ut and Il are at the roots of Greek mythology

Uranos is the sky/heaven in Greek mythology. The most distant planet is named after Uranus. It has already been observed that Uranos is quite similar to the Sumerian Sky/heaven god An in function! The word itself can easily be derived from Sumerian plus the Indo-European suffix -us/ -os

Ur+An+Us= Uranus.

Ur means base among others, as in Sumerian cities Ur and Uruk, Turkish Urug, Hungarian Ugor.

So the Sumerian root word An is not only used in the word Anatole but also in Uranus and other words, such as Ana (up).

Sumerian Il, Turkish Ul, Greek sun god Helios basis for the word Helicopter

The Greek word for sun Helios, is the basis of the English word Helicopter. The word Helios has the following etymology in Wiktionary:

From Proto-Hellenic *hāwélios, from a pre-Hellenic or later Proto-Indo-European *sāwélios, from Proto-Indo-European *sóh₂wl̥. Cognate with Old Church Slavonic слъньцє (slŭnĭce), Latin sol, Sanskrit सूर (sūra) and सूर्य (sūrya) and स्वर् (svar), Avestan 𐬵𐬎𐬎𐬀𐬭‎ (huuar), Persian خور‎ (xwar).

Watch the "hāwé" in hypothetical construction in Proto_Hellenic and compare it with "uğ" and "uğa" in Water, Father, and Mother: Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish.

Helios also means East which is quite telling because Anatole also means East. The word for sun does not mean East in most other languages including Sumerian and modern Turkish. The word for sun does not need to have a direction. Association of the sun with east may have an indication of their original homeland and/or the construction of the word Anatole above.

Now the Sumerian Turkish derivation of Helios: Uğ+il+os > ğelios > Helios.

This does not have the word "ut" sun but literally means "kin of what rises", or "what rises". The critical root here is "il" sumerian word for rise. The turkish counterpart for high, great is "Ul" or "Ulu" which is also the word for being "ol". The Latin word for sun Sol closely follows the Greek example. Here the ending "us" is in the beginning or simply replaces uğ as is the case in the word Kauğkaus (Caucasus):

Us+il > Su+il > Sol.

French word for sky, "ciel", closely follows the above derivation and confirms it.

Sumerian word for sun Ut and Greek word Theos

Greek "Theos" or Mycenaean "Te-o" derives from Sumerian word for sun, "Ut/Utu". Utu > Tuu or Tau > Teo.

Also well known is the derivation of Th from T, hence Teo > Theo. The ending -us is the typical Indo-European ending ubiquitious in Greek language and frequently found in other Indo-European languages.

Turkish word for Sunrise derives from the word for Born

The Ud/Ut sound is also the basis for the common Turkish word for being born "doğ" and "Doğu" the word for "east". Here the idea is that the sun is born rather than rise.

Sumerian Turkish Ud+Uğ= Uduğ > common Turkish Doğ.

For more on this see Water, Father, and Mother: Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish.

Proven: The Greek word "Anatole" and "Anatolia" derive from Sumerian Turkish

I have shown not only how this word derives from Sumerian Turkish but also how its constituents derive from Sumerian as well and they are used as root words in other ancient Greek and Indo-European language and words.

Sun Language Theory

Turkish academics say whatever the West tells them to say and there are too few people interested in history in Turkey.

After Ataturk's death in 1938, Western propaganda arms told people in Turkey: "Nothing to see here, go find your written history records in Asia." And everyone in Turkey obeyed because, maybe except a few people out of tens of millions, there was no real Ataturkist in Turkey back then, just like today.
