Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.31 - Greek words related to number "two hundred"

31.    Greek words related to number "two hundred":

Greek word DIAKOSIOI means "two hundred", and DIAKOSIOSTOS means "two hundredth",[Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].

Turkish cardinal numeral for "two hundred" is 
"iKiYÜZ" and for ordinal numeral "two hundredth" is "iKi YÜZiNCi" (iKi YÜZÜNCÜ).

a)    The Greek word DIAKOSIOI, meaning "two hundred", rearranged letter-by-letter as "ADO-IKI-IOS", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression 
"ADU 'iKiYÜZ'" (ADI 'iKiYÜZ') meaning "its name is 'two hundred'" iKiYÜZ is the cardinal numeral name in Turkish for 'two hundred'. Thus, this Greek numeral DIAKOSIOI is not genuine and has been fabricated using Turkish numeral name iKiYÜZ together with the Turkish word ADU (ADI) used as linguistic wrapping!

Turkish word 
ADI (ADU) means "its name", iKi means "two", YÜZ means "hundred", iKiYÜZ means "two hundred".


b)    The Greek word DIAKOSIOSTOS, meaning "two hundredth", rearranged letter-by-letter as "ADO-IKS-IOSSOT", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression 
"ADU 'iKiZ-YÜZCÜDÜ'" meaning "its name is in the 'twin hundredth'", that is, to say "its name is 'two hundredth'".  We note that Turkish ordinal numeral name 'iKiYÜZÜZÜNCÜ' has not been used fully.  The infix "IN" (ÜN) has been dropped. 

With all this insight decipherments, both the cardinal and the ordinal Greek numeral names DIAKOSIOI and DIAKOSIOSTOS are proven to have been fabricated using corresponding Turkish numeral name expressions but in a very deceptive manner!

Turkish word 
iKiZ means "twins; double, two in number"
