A short note on Covid-19 pandemic

We are all dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic around the world. The virus has shown how closely connected people around the world are. We are all fighting this pandemic by staying home, keeping distance and following good hygiene. Medical professionals and scientists are using repurposed drugs while vaccines are being developed around the world. I think and hope that we'll win this fight within a year or even less: stay put, trust science and trust humanity.

Overview: Etymology or archaeology of words, Migrations and the birth of languages

Etymology is a lot of fun, like solving a puzzle, but more difficult. At the same time, it reveals a lot about our history, not only as a group of people or the history of a specific language but also how languages are related to each other and how they evolved. If we can go back enough in time we might even attempt to reconstruct humanity's first language or a language that is close to it.

Needless to say that's a daunting task. Byt there is hope. We need to start from knowns and from there try to reconstruct the unknowns by going back in time. Sumerian, the first language with written records, will help a lot.

Migrations revealed by groundbreaking genetic research of the last 20 years, especially of the last few years

The migrations that are revealed so far by geneticists from Harvard, Max Planck Institute, Copenhagen University and universities and scientists around the world is nothing short of groundbreaking. So much so that history books will have to be rewritten.

I am happy to inform you that all my writings, books and articles are confirmed with genetics research of the last few years, including my research regarding the homeland of Indo-European languages and origins of the Sumerians, and the relationship of Sumerian to Indo-European languages.

Etymology and migrations, English language

Genetics revealed major population replacements in the British Isles, that the first farmers of Europe who migrated from Anatolia/Turkey replaced hunter-gatherers. Then Bell-Beakers who came from the Eurasian steppes through Central Europe, replaced these farmers. The languages they spoke is a subject of discussion but we know at least some of them spoke Vasconic languagesç In the last two thousand years, Romans, Normans invaded British Isles and before that Celts, Sycthians. Even from the Middle Ages to modern times English language changed considerably.

So we need to trace back words with both migration information as well as migration date information and try to figure out where these words lead us.

Very interestingly, controversial historians like British Lawrence Waddell had claimed that English language has its roots in Sumerian about 100 years ago. That would probably suprise many but following migrations of the last few thousand years would actually give support to this idea.

I have been using existing genetics data, hence migration and mixing of the people data, archaeology, mythology and languages to come up with a correct history of the world. And new research keep on strengthening my findings.

Etymologies of some of the major words in English and Indo-European Languages

There are too many words to be analyzed and I am concentrating on words that are structural to the language. You can find a lot more in my books, especially English was Turkish: Sumerian roots of Indo-European Languages I establish rules, transformations that point to common roots across many languages and language families.

Below, you will find some of the etymologies and also how Indo-European languages go more than 5000 years back and ultimately derive from languages of Siberia-Central Asia > Iran - Caucasus and Taurus Mountains, as evidenced by migration data!

The language of the people of Gobeklitepe from 10,000 BC in southeast Turkey may be ancestral to Indo-European or a sister branch to its ancestor.

The common ancestor of Basque, Japanese, Indo-European and Sumerian is Ugur Turkish Equivalence of the words for water, living matter, population growth, social rule proven using Sun Language Theory.

The concept of the original connection between water and society in Japanese Wa (和), Basque (Ur, Ura), Sumerian (Ur, Uruk), Indo-European languages (water, agua), Turkish (Uğ) prove beyond any doubt that these language are genetically related.

Derivation of the words English word gene from Ancient Greek genea, and Latin genus from Sumerian Turkish Ug (kinship, people) + An (sky).

English, Greek, Latin and other Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish Also shown the correct etymology and equivalence of the words Taurus, and Zagros, the names of mountain ranges where Hurrian states existed 5000 years ago and its linguistic relationship to Caucasus.

Origin and Spread of Languages on Eurasian Map based on Genetics Research and my books as of May 2019. The world's first known language Sumerian was favorably compared to many linguistic families in Eurasia and America. Comparing ancient Sumerian migration routes constructed from ancient genome studies to these languages will give the opportunity to trace back world languages to a common language spoken some 20000 years ago. read more

Sun Language Theory

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