Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.8 - Greek words related to number "six"

8.    Greek words related to number "six":

Greek word E
ξ (> EKIS) means "six", and EKTOS means "sixth", [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].  The Greek letter ξ (X) is a replacement for KS or EKS or IKS or KIS or KES multi-letter combinations. 

Turkish cardinal numeral for "six" is 
"ALTI" and for ordinal numeral "sixth" is "ALTINCI". But in the formation of these Greek numeral names, Turkish numeral name ALTI has not been used. Instead, a mathematical expression, shown below, has been used. 

a)    The Greek word EKIS, meaning "six", rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "EKI-S", is from Turkish expression  "IKi-Ş" (IKI ) meaning "two three", that is,  3 + 3 = 2 x 3 = 6.   Thus, the source for this Greek numeral concept is still from Turkish. By using this linguistic-mathematical trick, they avoided using the Turkish cardinal numeral name ALTI meaning "six". Thus, the artificially made up word EKIS gets its meaning from Turkish expression "IKi-Ş" (IKI ) - which is not readily visible.

b)    Similarly, the Greek word EKTOS, meaning "sixth", rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "EK-OST", is from Turkish expression  "IKi-UŞTi" (IKI TI) meaning "it is two three", that is,  3 + 3 = 2 x 3 = 6.  In this case Turkish suffix "INCI" corresponding to English "TH" has been dropped. 

c)    Even the English word SIX ( > SIKIS), meaning "six", rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "IKI-SS", is also from Turkish expression  "IKI-Ş" (IKI ) meaning "two three", that is,  3 + 3 = 6. Thus, the Turkish source text "iki-" (rather than the Turkish cardinal numeral name "ALTI") has been used in fabricating the English numeral name SIX.  All of this shows us that the Indo-European languages have, in a secretive manner, taken endless numbers of Turkish words and expressions in fabricating words for these languages.  They camouflaged what they took from Turkish so that their activity in this respect could not be known by the world public!

d)    Using Turkish expression  
"IKI-Ş" (IKI ) is also true for the cardinal numeral name ŞEŞ in so-called "Persian". The name ŞEŞ, rearranged as "Ş-E-Ş", is from Turkish  vE Ş", that is, " VE "  (3 + 3) meaning "two threes".  Thus, even in this case, the source was the Turkish language.  The Sumerians had the word  for numeral "three" which was, evidently, a dialect of Turkish  (Ş)! [See "A SUMERIAN READING- BOOK" by C. J. Gadd, Oxford At The Clarendon Press, 1924, p. 182].

The English word SIXTH (SIKISTH), rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "IKI-SS-TH", (where letter SS is used in place of SH, that is, Turkish letter Ş), is from Turkish expression  "IKI-ŞTi" (IKI TI) meaning "it is two threes", that is,  3 + 3 = 2 x 3 = 6. By using such a mathematical expression, they avoided using the Turkish ordinal numeral name ALTINCI meaning "sixth".
