A REVISIT OF THE NAME
In an earlier paper of mine, http://www.storm.ca/~cm-tntr/nostratic.html, written in Turkish (dated May 1, 2002), I had discussed the etymology of the word NOSTRATIC and shown that it was related to the Turkish language in many ways. The so-called proto language NOSTRATIC actually refers to the Turkish language - without naming it. In this paper, I will revisit the word NOSTRATIC and add to it with new insight that will bring even more clarity to this word and its etymology. We will see that despite the camouflage created by way of anagrammatizing, the word NOSTRATIC is made up from Turkish words and the so-called proto language "NOSTRATIC" indeed was the Turkish language.
On the name Nostratic, the following story shown in red is from Wikipedia - a site which I regard as a good-willed organization that provides base information on many subjects. For that I thank them. From Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nostratic , we have:
"Origin of the Nostratic hypothesis
These proposals were taken much farther in 1903 when Holger Pedersen, a major Danish linguist, proposed "Nostratic", a common ancestor for the Indo-European, Finno-Ugric, Samoyed, Turkish, Mongolian, Manchu, Yukaghir, Eskimo, Semitic, and Hamitic languages, with the door left open to the eventual inclusion of others.
The name Nostratic derives from the Latin word nostras, meaning 'our fellow-countryman' (plural: nostrates). Some linguists who broadly accept the concept have criticised the name as reflecting the ethnocentrism frequent among Europeans at the time. Even so, it arguably transcends these associations. Proposed alternative names such as Mitian, formed from the characteristic Nostratic first- and second-person pronouns mi 'I' and ti 'you', have not attained the same currency.
An early supporter was the French linguist Albert Cuny better known for his role in the development of the laryngeal theory who published hisRecherches sur le vocalisme, le consonantisme et la formation des racines en « nostratique », ancêtre de l'indo-européen et du chamito-sémitique('Researches on the Vocalism, Consonantism, and Formation of Roots in "Nostratic", Ancestor of Indo-European and Hamito-Semitic') in 1943. Although Cuny enjoyed a high reputation as a linguist, the work was coldly received.
While Pedersen's Nostratic hypothesis did not make much headway in the West, it became quite popular in what was then the Soviet Union. Working independently at first, Vladislav Illich-Svitych and Aharon Dolgopolsky elaborated the first version of the contemporary form of the hypothesis during the 1960s. They expanded it to include additional language families. Illich-Svitych also prepared the first dictionary of the hypothetical language."
It is sad that this Wikipedia entry is full of confusing verbology and mythology regarding the so-called "NOSTRATIC" language. They are trying to apply the concocted term "NOSTRATIC" to a world-wide spoken language that existed in ancient times but did not have that name. I have already written a paper regarding the name "NOSTRATIC" where I demonstrated the bogusness of this proposed name. This artificial name NOSTRATIC" as defined above falsely elevates the present "Indo-European" and"Semitic" languages to be at par with those ancient people who spoke that ancient world-wide language. These Indo-Europeans - called Aryans - such as the gypsy Greeks, Romans and the gypsies of the Babylon and their other relatives, who infiltrated the Turanian lands in Asia and "Europe" and fabricated their so-called own languages from that one ancient language the world spoke, are now trying to concoct a legitimizing base for their languages which they artificially fabricated from that one world language. That one mother/father language was the Turkish language of the ancient Turanian world. This I will show below.
They say that "The name Nostratic derives from the Latin word nostras, meaning 'our fellow-countryman' (plural: nostrates)."
This is a false claim to which I say the following: Not only is the so-called "LATIN" language an artificial language fabricated from Turkish, but so too is the name NOSTRATIC - which is also made up from a well known Turkish name. This we can see as follows:
a) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "TORCISTAN", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized, restructured, Romanized and stolen form of the Turkish name TURKISTAN which everyone knows - and associates with the Turks. What this means is that this so-called term Nostratic is a concoction made up from the name Turkistan. In other words, the name Turkistan has been deliberately stolen by some European linguists. This shows how cunning and deceptive those linguists were - and how the world is being taken for a wild goose chase!
TURKISTAN is the homeland of Turkish peoples in Central Asia. Thus, the term NOSTRATIC is a bogus name which is fabricated from this Turkish name, rather than being drived from the so-called LATIN word "NOSTRAS". This is a dishonest etymology and deceptive linguistics. It is designed to con and misinform thousands of honest linguists who spend their lives trying to understand the truth behind so many world languages. This 'sophisticated' and dishonest "linguistic trick" has been used for thousands of years by the wanderer groups who not only stole the Turkish language but also prepared a linguistic base into which they usurped the ancient Turanian Tur/Türk/Oguz civilization and Turkish state names. By doing this, they not only obliterated the ancient Turan civilizations from history, they also transferred "ownership" of those ancient Turanian civilizations to themselves. Converting the name Turkistan to Nostraticis a perfect example of this. By anagrammatizing ancient Turkish state names into some non-Turkish formats, they manufactured state names and labelled them as "unknown" people - or fictitious "Aryan" and "Semitic" state names that did not exist before. Thus, they both obliterated those ancient Turanian civilizationsfrom history and also they usurped them. For instance, the very ancient and long-lived Turanian state of MASAR (MISIR) has been conveniently renamed to EGYPT - meaning GYPSY.
In addition to the name of Turkistan, the madeup name Nostratic also has a number of other relevant Turkish expressions embedded in it that relate to the Turkish language and many aspects of the ancient Turkish culture. Now let us see them:
b) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "ATN-TORCSI", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name ATiN- TURKSI" (ADIN TÜRKÇE) meaning "your name is Turkish". This identifies the true identity of the so-called proto-language ofNOSTRATIC as TURKISH from TURKISTAN.
Turkish word AD means "name", ADIN means "your name", TÜRKÇE means "Turkish".
c) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "TORAN-CIST", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name TURAN-aKISTi (TURAN AGIZDI, TURAN DILIDI) meaning "it is Turan language, it is Turan words, it is Turkish". This again clearly says that the name NOSTRATIC is an encrypted representation of the TURKISH language of ancient TURAN!
The Turkish word TURAN is the name of Central Asia and is the homelands of Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. AGIZ means "mouth, word, language, speech".
d) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "TANRI-OCST", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "TANRI OGUZTu" (TANRI OGUZDU, TANRI O KÖZDÜ) meaning "it is God OGUZ".
Turkish word TANRI means "God", OGUZ (OGUZ) is one other "ancestoral name" of Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.
e) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "TANRI-COST", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "TANRI KÖZTü" (TANRI ATASHTI, TANRI KÖZDÜ) meaning "God is fire". This refers to the Sun-God, that is, the GÜN-TANRI of ancient Turanians.
Turkish word KÖZ means "glowing fire", KÖZDÜ means "it is glowing fire".
f) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "TANRI-COST", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "TANRI-COSüTü" meaning "it is God's eye". This refers, first and foremost, to the SUN (Turkish GÜN). Secondly, it would refer to the MOON which was also regarded as the "eye" of the Sky-God in ancient Turanian religion. It is curious that the English word "eye" which is voiced as "AY" is the Turkish name AY meaning "moon". Is this coincidence? Of course not. English, just like all other "indo-European" languages, is an artificially fabricated language made up from Turkish. This word "eye" is another evidence of this fact!
Turkish word GÖZ means "eye", GÖZDÜ means "it is the eye".
g) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CONASTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "aTa-KUNAŞTIR" (ATA GÜNEŞTIR) meaning "Father is the Sun".
Turkish word ATA means "father", GÜNEŞ (KUNAŞ )means "sun; sunlight".
h) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CONASTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "uTu-KUNAŞTIR" (UTU GÜNEŞTIR meaning "UTU (the Turko-Sumerian) Sun-God is the Sun".
i) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CONASTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "aTi-KUNAŞTIR" (ATI GÜNEŞTIR) meaning "Its name is Sun".
Turkish word GÜNEŞ (GÜN + IŞI) means "sun; sunlight".
j) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CONASTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "aTi-KONUŞTIR" (ATI KONUŞTIR) meaning "Its name is speech, its name is language".
Turkish word KONUŞ (GONUŞ) means "word, speech; speak, say".
k) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CANOSTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "aTi-KANUŞTIR" (ATI GANUŞTIR) meaning "Its name is understanding, its name is learning, its name is schooling".
Turkish word KANUŞ (GANUŞ, KANIŞ) means "understanding".
l) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "T-CONASTIR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "aTi-oKUNUŞTIR" (ADI OKUNUŞTIR) meaning "its name is reading, writing, going to school; its name is learning; its name is acquiring knowledge".
Turkish word OKU means "study; learn; read, write", OKUNUŞ means "reading; being read".
m) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "COR-AN-T-IST", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "KOR-AN-DeIŞTi" (GÖK KORu DEYIŞTIR, GÜNEŞ DEYIŞIDIR, GUNEŞ DILIDIR" - meaning "It is the Sun Language" - which is Turkish! Of course we also see that the Turkish KOR AN" meaning "the fire of Sky", that is, the Sun, is also the same as the so-called "Arabic" name KUR'ANwhich is the name of the Islamic "Holy Book". Is this a coincidence? Not likely!
Turkish word KOR means "glowing fire", AN means "sky; time; ancient Turkish plurality suffix", GÖK KORu means "sky fire, sun".
n) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "ATIN-COSTR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "ADIN GÖZDÜR" meaning "your name is eye". This refers to the Human "Eye" as well as the eyes of all animals. The EYE (GÖZ) sees all things that are lit up by the sun rays and transfers that information to the human brain to be evaluated for the purpose of survival and acumulation of knowledge, and for the betterment of life which is done all by the human brain - which is a "god" or "creator" itself. Thus the EYE is the most powerful knowledge source for the brain.
o) When the word NOSTRATIC is rearranged letter-by-letter as "ATIN-COSTR", it reveals itself as an anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish name "ADIN SÖZDÜR" meaning "your name is word". This is so, because the so-called "Latin" letter C is not only vocalized as "K" but also as "S" many times. So it is a multi-identity letter in the so-called "Indo-European" languages. Some letters have multiple-identities in Indo-European languages because it is very convenient and useful in covering up the Turkish identity of the source linguistic material used to make up the words. The IE letter C is one of these. See the vocalization of the English word ACCESS - where the first C is pronounced as a K while the second C is pronounced as an S.
Turkish word SÖZ means "word, phrase, speech".
It must be noted that all of these deciphered meanings contained in the name NOSTRATIC are also present in the name TURKISTAN.
There may be some more relevant and meaningful Turkish expressions embedded in the name NOSTRATIC, that is, TURKISTAN - waiting to be deciphered. I believe the ones given in this paper should suffice to demonstrate to everyone that Nostratic is an anagrammatized form of the Turkish word Turkistan - and many other related Turkish expressions. All of this information found in one word is possible only with Turkish!
Thus, the so-called proto-language that linguists have conveniently labelled NOSTRATIC, was secretly referring to the Turkish language of the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. With such a powerful and systematic agglutinative language, the ancient Turanians gave many forms of civilization to the people of the world - which has been enjoyed to this day - without being recognized. For instance, language, reading, writing, alphabet, schooling, learning - to name a few. Those linguists who concocted the term "NOSTRATIC" were simply usurping the glory of the ancient Turanian Turkish language and civilization with one hand and intentionally obliterating them with the other.
In the above citing from Wikipedia, it says that the proposed "Nostratic" is a common ancestor for the Indo-European, Finno-Ugric, Samoyed, Turkish, Mongolian, Manchu, Yukaghir, Eskimo, Semitic, and Hamitic languages, with the door left open to the eventual inclusion of others. In this list of languages, Finno-Ugric, Mongolian, Manchu, Yukaghir, Eskimo are all presently Turkish related languages.
The term Hamitic languages include the so-called "Mizraim", that is, the language of the ancient Turanian Masar (Misir) usurped under the name "Egypt" meaning "gypsy", the language of Canaanites, Cushites and Tuaregs (Berbers). They were dialects of Turkish. This is evident from many entries found in the dictionary titled "An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary" by E. A. Wallis Budge. The presence of ancient Turkish speaking Turanians in the Middle East and in ancient Masar (Misir) enabled them to spread their language and civilization throughout this geography. The people of these ancient countries were Turkish speaking Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. The Hamitic languages are also called "Caucasian race" which makes them Turanian. In addition to these, we must also mention that the Sumerian, Elam and Mede of ancient Iran, Anatolian, Etruscan, Thracian and Pelasgian (Saka Türkleri) languages were all dialects of the same Turkish language.
The name Canaan is the distorted and Semitized form of the Turkish name KÜNHAN (GÜNHAN) meaning "Sun Lord", that is, the name of one of the six sons of OGUZ KAGAN. Of course among these people are the famed Phoenicians, Palestinians (the Saka Sea People), the Hurrians, Urartus, Kassites, Mitannis, the Turians (the ancient name of Turia has been replaced by the present name Syria (Suria) by changing T to S) and others.
Actually, the Saka Turks (Iskitler) covered a vast geography extending from the Sakhalin islands (which is drived from the name SAKA) in the East to Scotland (Scotia, that is, Iskit Öy / Saka Öy) in the west.
The name "Cushite" comes from the Turkish word "koch" (kosh, koç) meaning "ram"- which was their logo. The suffix "-ite" at the and of the name "Cush-ite", is the distorted form of the Turkish suffix "idi, iti" meaning "it is". This is also the case for all other English names that include this suffix.
As for the other ones, that is, the so-called Indo-European (Aryan (Arayan)) and the Semitic languages - I have repeatedly stated that they are languages manufactured from Turkish by way of anagrammatizing Turkish words and expressions. I have given many examples demonstrating this fact. And because these languages were fabricated from the Turkish language, Turkish becomes an ancestor language to them as well.
Thus, Turkish was the most widely used language in the ancient world. It is no wonder that GENESIS 11 mentions that they all spoke one world language. This was so before it was intentionally confused by Jehova believers and Aryans (Arayans).
Judeo-Christianity usurped every religious concept from the ancient Turanian world-wide religion of the SKY-GOD, SUN-GOD and Moon-GOD, that is, GÖK-TANRI, GÜN-TANRI and AY-TANRI in Turkish. After they invented Judeo-Christianity, those who got converted by force and by sneaky ways into these religions, also got their Turkish language and Turkish identity changed into alienated forms. Their language was replaced by the artificially fabricated, so-called, Indo-European and Semitic languages - which were anagrammatized into different formats by the invisible hands of these religious organizations.
Now, by way of more deceptions, they are trying to create an appearance of antiquity and authenticity to these artificially fabricated languages (called "Indo-European and Semitic" languages) by concocting an Indo-European sounding name of "NOSTRATIC" as the ancestor language. Yet in this paper, I have clearly shown that NOSTRATIC is an anagrammatized form of the Turkish word TURKISTAN. It is about time that linguists abandon this linguistic fraud and deception that has been perpetrated since, at least, the time of the Akkadians, and admit the fact that Turkish was that language which is regarded as the ancestor language for all these languages.
Best wishes to all,
