This study, mainly under the above given title, will be posted in a series of articles in which I will discuss Greek numeral names and some related Greek words. The purpose of this study was to show how the Greek numeral names were made up from Turkish expressions describing Turkish cardinal and ordinal numeral names. Further, to show that when the Turkish language was a world wide spoken language, there was no Greek language, nor a so-called "Indo-European" language family as we know them presently. In time they were all manufactured from Turkish by way of altering, restructuring and disguising (i.e., by way of 'anagrammatizing') Turkish words and expressions into many related formats of the so called "Indo-European"  languages.  



1.    Greek words related to "cardinal numeral":

Greek word ARITHMETIKOS, meaning "cardinal numeral", [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762], rearranged letter-by-letter as "SAIH-TIMEKTOR" (where Greek letter H is a fluid letter that can be H or I or E as required in the hands of Greek anagrammatizers) is the altered, restructured, disguised and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression 
"SAYI DEMEKTUR" (SAYI SAYMAKTUR) meaning "it is saying the numbers", "it is counting 1, 2, 3, . . .".  Actually all so-called "arithmetical" operations are based on counting and adding the numerals. The ten-fingered two hands of man are natural counting machines.

Turkish word 
SAYI means "number" SAYMAK means "to count" SAYMAKTUR (SAYMADUR) means "it is counting, it is adding" DEMEK means "to say", DEMEKTUR means "it is saying". 

Additionally, the Greek term APOLUTOS ARITHMOS also means "cardinal numbers", that is, numbers that denote quantity such as one, two, three, . . . ..  The Greek expression APOLUTOS ARITHMOS, rearranged letter-by-letter as "POL-SAUH  SAIMOTOR-T", is the altered, restructured, disguised and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression 
"BOL SAYI SAYMADUR" meaning "it is counting many numbers" BOL means "plenty, many".


Even the English term CARDINAL NUMERAL, defined as "a number denoting quantity (one, two, three, etc.), as opposed to an ordinal number (first, second, third, etc.)", [Oxford American Dictionaries], rearranged letter-by-letter as "CAULARNN-ADLRIEM" or "CAULRNN-ADLARIEM" (where letter C is a replacement for letter S rather than letter K, as in the case of the second C in the word "ACCESS") is the altered, restructured, disguised and Anglicized form of the Turkish expression 
"SAYULARIN ADLARIYEM" (SAYILARIN ADLARIYAM) meaning "I am the names of numbers".  This Turkish definition is exactly the definition attributed to the concept of the so-called "cardinal numeral" as given above.  Thus the source of this English term is also from Turkish - contrary to misspelling and mispronunciation! 

Turkish word 
SAYI (SAYU) means "number, numeral" SAYULAR (SAYILAR) means "numbers, numerals" SAYILARIN means "of the numbers, of the numerals" AD means "name",  ADLAR means "names", ADLARIYAM means "I am the names".
