Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.11 - Greek words related to number "nine"

11.    Greek words related to number "nine":

Greek word ENNEA, means "nine", and ENATOS, means "ninth" [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].  

Turkish cardinal numeral for "nine" is "DOKUZ" and for ordinal numeral "ninth" is "DOKUZUNCU".

In order to see that these Greek terms, related to "nine", are from Turkish source, we should examine the Greek ordinal numeral ENENEKOSTOS meaning "ninetieth" and the Greek cardinal numeral name ENENEKONTA meaning "ninety".

a)    The term ENENEKOSTOS, rearranged as "TOKSENENSE-O", is the restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression 
"TOKSANINCI O" (DOKSANINCI O) meaning "it is the ninetieth".  Clearly, this Greek word ENENEKOSTOS has been fabricated from the Turkish ordinal numeral name DOKSANINCI by way of anagrammatizing and Hellenizing it.  But, we are given the false impression that this Greek term is based on the so-called Greek word ENNEA. We must note that the Greek word "ENNEA", meaning "nine", is more or less the cut off front end of the longer term ENENEKOSTOS which is made up from Turkish.  Turkish cardinal numeral "DOKSAN" means "ninety" and the ordinal numeral "DOKSANINCI" means "ninetieth".  Turkish numeral name DOKSAN is related to the Turkish mathematical expression DOKUZ-ON meaning "ninety" where DOKUZ means "nine" and ON means "ten". 

Thus, there has been further deception in fabricating this word ENNEA by assigning the meaning of the Turkish numeral 
"DOKUZ" (TOKUZ) (meaning "nine") to the term ENNEA.  So, anyone comparing the Greek word ENNEA (meaning "nine") with the Turkish numeral name DOKUZ will find no obvious resemblance whatsoever - unless they search a lot deeper - as I am doing.  The reality I have demonstrated here is that the artificial Greek word ENNEA does get its meaning of "nine" from the Turkish cardinal numeral name DOKUZ - but in a convoluted and cross-wise manner!

b)    Additionally, the same Greek term ENENEKOSTOS (meaning "ninetieth"), rearranged as "TOKES-ONENSE", is the rearranged form of the Turkish expression 
"TOKUZ-ONUNCU" meaning "nine times ten'th", that is, "ninetieth". Turkish mathematical expression "TOKUZ-ON" means "nine-ten" which makes, "ninety".  By the addition of the Turkish suffix UNCU (INCI), the word becomes "ninetieth". Thus, this Turkish expression also verifies the fact that the Greek term ENENEKOSTOS has been made up from Turkish - but in this case in a different way where Turkish numerals DOKUZ  and ON are used. Yet, this meaning has also been assigned to the Greek cardinal numeral ENENEKONTA meaning "ninety" as well.  

The Greek word ENNEA, meaning "nine", is again the front part of both Greek cardinal numeral ENENEKONTA and the ordinal numeral ENENEKOSTOS All this indicates that the meaning of the Turkish cardinal numeral name 
TOKUZ (DOKUZ) for "nine" has been artificially assigned to ENNEA in fabricating these Greek numeral names.

Since the term ENNEA gets its numeral value from Turkish 
"DOKUZ", then, ENENEKONTA, meaning "ninety", can be rearranged as "ENENE-KAT-ON" or totally in Turkish as "DOKUZ-KAT-ON". This Turkish mathematical expression means "nine fold ten" - which makes "ninety". 

Thus, we see that all of these Greek numeral names related to the number "nine" are all made up from Turkish expressions - in spite of the fact that very deceitful restructuring and disguising have taken place. We must also note that the English term "NINE" is related to the Greek term "ENNEA" - showing that the English numeral name nine is also related to Turkish ordinal numeral name 
DOKSANINCI and, thereby, to Turkish DOKUZ!
