Etymology of Goat and Kid

By Mehmet Kurtkaya, Published on October 12, 2019

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

- Major genetics news (March 2019) from Spain! Science has beaten history books once more, and the results fully support my theories, books and articles on the origin of Indo-European languages! The spread of Indo-European languages: genetic evidence, haplogroup info suggests Sumerian and Hurrian origins With special emphasis on the linguistic affiliations of Haplogroup J and R1b who migrated with J.

The words "foot" and Turkish "ayak" sound completely different, but can they be related? The answer : Words for foot and leg in world languages

Goat and Kid

Hey, kid!

Until recently I thought "kid" was short for "child". I learned that "kid" meant "young goat" but in the 1500s people started to use it for child.

Neither "goat" nor "kid" (young goat) is of English origins. Moreover, these words are not even of Indo-European origins.

Goats were first domesticated around the Zagros mountains in Iran, continuation of the Eastern Taurus mountains in Southeast Turkey about 10,000 years ago, before the formation of Indo-European languages. Hence Indo-Europeans acquired the name from other people, maybe from those who domesticated it.

Even Guus Kroonen, a staunch Indo-Europeanist, suggests that the word for "goat/gait" is of non-Indo-European origins and more importantly he says that the -id/-ud ending in Greek and German words are from a substrate language which means that another language influenced it. See here Non-Indo-European root nouns inGermanic: evidence in support of the Agricultural Substrate Hypothesis

Also see Bull, Ox and Taurus where I analyze Sumerian words for bull: "Agud", "Gud", and "Gu". Compare "goat" to Sumerian Agud (ox). Both within Turkish and in other languages, sometimes the same word is used for different animals. Maybe I should call it "transferance". For example compare Latin "ovid" for "sheep" with known ğ > v transformation, to Sumerian Agud.

There are attempts at connecting "kid" and "goat" to a reconstructed proto-Indo-European word, some form of "*gʰaid-" but that's too vague and mostly self-referential rather than an etymology, and does not have common acceptance.

Wiktionary article for "kid" offers some clues:

"From Middle English kide, from Old Norse kið (“young goat”), from Proto-Germanic *kidją, *kittīną (“goatling, kid”), perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *gʰaidn-, *ǵʰaidn- (“goat”) or Proto-Indo-European *gidʰ- (“kid, goatling, little goat”). Compare Swedish and Danish kid, German Kitz and Kitze, Albanian kedh and kec."

And when we look at Albanian "kec", we see a suggestion that it could have been from Ottoman Turkish "keci". Well, the word can be found in Turkish written records much earlier than the founding of the Ottomans. That's a genuine Turkish word found in all major Turkish dialects around Eurasia as "eçkü" or "ök" as given by Turkish wiktionary, Vikisozluk keçi

There is more not only Turkish "keçi" means "goat", but Hungarian "gida" means "kid" (young goat).

Turkish word for "young goat" is "oğlak" which also meant in the past "young child", kid.

Oğ+ul+ak= Oğlak (child, later strictly son, and "young goat")

In modern Turkish the word "oğlak" only means "young goat", no longer "kid/son".

A very similar Old Irish word, oglach, has similar meanings:

Wikipedia article for Gallowglass (Irish mercenaries) says the word is formed with "oac" (meaning "youth") and Old Irish lóeg (meaning "calf" but later becoming a word for a hero).

Lactose from Latin word for milk "lac", Greek "galaktos" and PIE constructions for milk *glakt are too close to oğlak. Moreover "t" is a Old Turkish plural marker, but I am not sure if that "t" is the same "t" in PIE constructions.

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.
