Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.28 - Greek words related to number "eighty"

28.    Greek words related to number "eighty":

Greek word OKTOEKONTA means "eighty", and OKTOEKOSTOS means "eightieth", [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].  

Turkish cardinal numeral for "eighty" is 
"SEKSEN" and for ordinal numeral "eightieth" is "SEKSENINCI".

a)    The Greek word OKTOEKONTA, rearranged as "OKTO-KATE-ON", that is, 
OKTO x10 = 80where "OKTO" is an unknown term in this Turkish mathematical expression.  Mathematically, OKTO is found to be 80/10 = 8 which is so!  Number 8 is SEKIZ in Turkish. Thus, expression "OKTO-KATE-ON" is the same as the Turkish "SEKIZ KATI ON" which makes Turkish cardinal numeral SEKSEN meaning "eighty". This shows that the Greek cardinal numeral name OKTO and the Turkish cardinal numeral SEKIZ have the same numeral value although their name forms are different. 

In discussing the Greek words related to number "eight", I showed that the Greek cardinal numeral OKTW (OKTO, OKTA) was the cut off front end of other Greek words, such as the Greek word OKTAKIS meaning "eight times" and others, which were made up from Turkish expressions using Turkish numeral 
SEKIZ. In the anagrammatization process of Turkish expressions, the Greek term OKTW(OKTO, OKTA) had been assigned the meaning of the Turkish cardinal number SEKIZ while its form was determined from the cut off front part of the garbled new word. [See http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Polat_Kaya/message/557 ].

Thus, the fact that the Greek cardinal numeral OKTOEKONTA, meaning "eighty", has been made up from Turkish "SEKIZ KATI ON" is verified. 

Turkish word 
ON means "ten"KATI means "times; fold", SEKIZ means "eight" and SEKSEN means "eighty".


b)    Similarly, the Greek ordinal numeral name OKTOEKOSTOS, meaning "eightieth", rearranged as "SEKOS-KOTO-OT", is the restructured form of the Turkish expression 
"SEKUZ-KATU ON" (SEKIZ-KATI ON) meaning "eight times ten" which is "eighty". In this arrangement, the letter N in the Turkish source text has been replaced with letter T. Thus, the disguising has been secured.  In this decipherment, we find that not only the Greek cardinal numeral OKTO gets its meaning from the meaning of Turkish cardinal numeral SEKIZ (SEKUZ), but also the Greek ordinal numeral OKTOEKOSTOS, gets its meaning and the form from Turkish mathematical expression "SEKUZ KATU ON" meaning "8 times 10". 

Thus, we find that both OKTOEKONTA and OKTOEKOSTOS have been made up using Turkish expression 
"SEKUZ KATU ON" although they have been structured differently. 


c)    In order to see a better view of this, let us analyze the Greek word OGDOEKONTAKIS meaning "eighty times", [Divry's, p. 611].  

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" meaning "it is eight-ten fold", that is, "it is eighty times" In this case also, we again find the Turkish numeral name SEKIZ but rather in a distorted and disguised form of SEKIG where letter Z in the source text has been dropped and replaced with letter G. 

Alternatively, it is the Turkish expression 
"SEKSEN KATUDU" meaning "it is the fold of eighty" or "it is eighty times" where SEKSEN is the shortened form of SEKIZ-ON in Turkish.

This decipherment verifies that this "Greek" word OGDOEKONTAKIS not only is made up from a Turkish expression that means "eighty times", but also this Turkish expression identifies Turkish words 
SEKIZ, ON, SEKSEN and KATIDU. These are all related to the Turkish cardinal and ordinal numerals SEKSEN and SEKSENINCI.

Turkish cardinal numeral name 
SEKSEN means "eighty", the Turkish adjective KATIDU (KATUDU) means "the fold of, it is times".
