Etymology of the word English word "gene", Latin "genus", Ancient Greek "genea", Turkish kan, Sumerian gan

By Mehmet Kurtkaya, Published on November 11, 2018

Gene, Genus, Genea, Genee

Speaking of genetic studies the etymology of the word "gene" can be quite revealing. In my book Sun Language Theory Proven! I had shown how Turkish was ancestral to world's many languages, if not all, and that Indo_European languages derive from Turkish / Sumerian Turkish.

The word gene comes from Ancient Greek γενεά (genea) says Wiktionary:

"From German Gen, from Ancient Greek γενεά (geneá, “generation, descent”), from the aorist infinitive of γίγνομαι (gígnomai, “I come into being”). Coined by the Danish biologist Wilhelm Ludvig Johannsen in a German-language publication."

Greek word means: birth, race, descent, generation, offspring. Latin genus have similar meaning and sound.

Cool, but which word the ancient Greek genea, genee comes from? What is the relationshio of the Greek word Genea with the Latin word genus?

The answer is very easy using Sumerian Turkish and common Turkish.

Uğ= People, kinship, lineage, descent,
An Sky

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

"English word "kin" derives from Turkish word "kan" meaning blood. In Turkish, "kin" means hate, conceptually related to "kan".

Kagan / Khan / Han the word for highest ruler is also related. English / German words "King" and "Konig" probably derive from these stems: Kan+Ug (blood plus people/lineage).

More over "kan" is formed through Uğ+An=Kinship+Sky as the Sumerian word AN means sky. Uğan > Gan > Kan

"Gan" also means bear child in Sumerian, perfectly in line with "Ugan" above."

For more of the derivation of Konig, King see the article.

Latin genus is formed through adding "us" Indo-European ending. Hence Uğ+An+us > Genus.

Moreover An+us > -anos. And -anos is a common Greek ending from Turkey / Anatolia notes Beekes.
