Words under the lens: English word "SCRATCH" and the Greek word "TSOUGKRANISMA"

 

Words under the lens:  English word "SCRATCH" and the Greek word "TSOUGKRANISMA"  


English word Scratch as verb means:

.    to scrape or make a slight mark in the surface of something

.    to make a thin tear in the surface of the skin of a person or animal
.    to rub or scrape a surface, for example, with claws or a scraping instrument

.    to write or draw something by marking a surface with a pointed or sharp instrument
.    to write or draw something hastily
.    to delete or erase something by scraping it off, crossing it out, or rendering it illegible

Scratch as noun means:

.    a slight cut or mark on a surface
.    a thin cut or tear in the surface of the skin of a person or animal
.    something written hastily or illegibly

These meanings of the word Scratch is explained by the Turkish  verb "«IZMEK"  meaning "to scratch" and KAŞIMAK also meaning "to scratch", and also the by the word «IZIK meaning "scratched" 


The word SCRATCH, when rearranged as "CHSCTAR", and read as a Turkish word, is an altered form of the Turkish word "«İZİKTİR meaning "it is scratch".  The English "CH" combination is the Turkish letter "«" (ch). Two of the vowels in the Turkish source have been dropped in this "English" word.  

Turkish word «İZİK means "scratch", TIR (TUR) is a defining suffix meaning "it is", and «İZİKTİR means "it is scratch".  It must be noted that the word "scratch" when voiced in English, has an "I" sound after the letter "S" which has been intentionally dropped. 

Additionally, when the word SCRATCH is deciphered as "CASHCTR", and read as a Turkish word, we find that SCRATCH is an altered and restructured form of the Turkish word "KAŞIKTIR meaning "it is scratch".  This time the Turkish source is the verb KAŞIMAK meaning "to scratch".

***


The Greek word for scratching is given as "TSOUGKRANISMA", [Divry's English-Greek and Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 713]

The Greek word TSOUGKRANISMA, when rearranged as "ONU-GASSIMAKTR", where SS combination is a replacement for Turkish letter Ş (sh), and read as a Turkish word, then we find that the Greek word TSOUGKRANISMA is an altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish word "ONU KAŞIMAKTUR" meaning "it is scratching it". This meaning in Turkish deciphered from the "Greek" word TSOUGKRANISMA also corroborates the meaning of the English word SCRATCH.  It shows that my decipherments of these Indo-European words are exact and correct. 

Hence, it is clear that these English and Greek words have been fabricated from Turkish and they are not authentic as claimed.
