Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.10 - Greek words related to number "eight"

10.    Words related to number "eight":

Greek word OKTW means "eight", and OGDOOS means "eighth", [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].

Turkish cardinal numeral for "eight" is 
"SEKIZ" and for ordinal numeral "eighth" is "SEKIZINCI". 

Let us start by looking at the longer Greek word OKTAKIS meaning "eight times", [Divry's, p. 613] in which OKTA (OKTW) is cut off front end of this word.

a)   Greek word OKTAKIS, rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "SAKI-KOT" or "AKIS-KOT", is from Turkish expression "SEKIZ KAT" meaning "eight times", that is,  multiples of eight. The letter Z in the Turkish text has been dropped in addition to the fact that the Turkish source text has been altered, restructured, disguised and Hellenized!  Turkish word KAT means "fold, times". It is also observed that the term OKTA, meaning "eight", has been assigned the meaning of the Turkish cardinal number SEKIZ - meaning "eight". 

This we see clearly in the Greek word OKTAPLASIAZW meaning "I increase eight fold", [Divry's Dictionary, p. 614].  


b)   Greek word OKTAPLASIAZW (where letter W is VU in this case), rearranged letter-by-letter as
 "SAKIZ-TAVA-OLUP", is from Turkish mathematical expression  "SEKIZ DEFA OLUP" meaning something "has become eight times", that is,  "has become eight fold".  Any number multiplied with eight, becomes eight fold or increased eight fold! In the decipherment of this Greek word OKTAPLASIAZW, we find the Turkish cardinal numeral name "SEKIZ" intact. In addition we find the Turkish words "OLUP", meaning "has become", and "DEFA", meaning "times".  Clearly, they have all been mixed and restructured into a totally alien format - so-called "Greek" OKTAPLASIAZW.  Unquestionably, this artificial word OKTA gets its meaning from the Turkish cardinal numeral "SEKIZ" via the word OKTAPLASIAZW.

Let us now analyze another Greek word OGDOEKONTAKIS meaning "eighty times", [Divry's, p. 611].  

c)    The Greek word OGDOEKONTAKIS, rearranged letter-by-letter as "SEKIG-ON-KATODO", is the altered, restructured, disguised and Hellenized form of the Turkish mathematical expression  "SEKIZ-ON KATUDU" which, of course, means "it is eighty times" or alternatively Turkish expression "SEKSEN KATIDI" meaning "it is eighty times".   In this case, we again find the Turkish cardinal numeral name SEKIZ but rather in a distorted and disguised form of SEKIG where letter Z in the Turkish source text has been dropped. We note that Turkish mathematical expression SEKIZ-ON means "eight-ten", that is, 8x10 which makes "eighty". Additionally, Turkish SEKIZ-ON is the source text for the Turkish cardinal numeral SEKSEN meaning "eighty". Turkish word KATUDU (KATIDI) means "it is times".

d)   Another "eight" related word is the Greek word OKTAKOSIOSTOS meaning "eight hundredth", [Divry's, p. 614].  The Greek word OKTAKOSIOSTOS rearranged letter-by-letter as "SAKIS-KOTO-OSTO", is the altered, restructured, disguised and Hellenized form of the Turkish mathematical expression  
"SEKIZ KATI YÜZ'DÜ" meaning "it is eight times hundred", which is "eight hundred"  rather than "eight hundredth". 

In this decipherment of the Greek word  OKTAKOSIOSTOS, we find that the Turkish cardinal numeral
SEKIZ (meaning "eight") and the cardinal numeral YÜZ (meaning "hundred") together with the Turkish word KATI (KATU) (meaning "times, fold") have been used in the mathematical expression "8x100" that became the Turkish source text for fabricating the Greek ordinal number OKTAKOSIOSTOS – meaning "eight hundredth".  Further we see that the Greek term OKTA has been assigned the meaning of the Turkish cardinal number SEKIZ  and the whole of the Turkish expression "SEKIZ KATI YÜZ'DÜ" has been assigned to the Greek word OKTAKOSIOSTOS meaning "eight hundredth".   Thus, the Greek language "engineers" acted as they pleased in anagrammatizing the Turkish source texts! 

Turkish word 
SEKIZ means "eight", KATI means "times, fold", YÜZ means "hundred".

e)    The Greek term OGDOOS (also OGDOON) meaning the ordinal numeral "eighth", [Divry's, p. 614], corresponds to Turkish ordinal numeral 
"SEKIZINCI" meaning "eighth". The Greek term OGDOOS can be replaced with "OKTA + OOS" (OKTAOOS) or alternatively, with "OKTA + OON"(OKTAOON) where OKTA is SEKIZ. But these terms together, rearranged as "OKTA-SO-O" and "OKTA-ON-O" respectively, we find that they together share parts of the Turkish ordinal numeral expression "SEKIZUNCU O" (SEKIZINCI O) meaning "it is the eighth". This again shows that the Greek term OGDOOS (or OGDOON) gets its meaning from Turkish numeral SEKIZ and SEKIZINCI but rater in a very altered and manipulated manner that has secured the disguise of its Turkish source text.
