CLIMATE comes from Greek klima (region,
The guttural pronunciation of עולם [O]aLaM (world, eternity) is really עולם GHOALaM. GH is a
close guttural away from the Greek K. Especially in the Aramaic עולמה [O]aLMaH or עולם GHoaLaM (world), the sense is clearly the
habitable region and not a planet. In Scripture the term infers time zones
("ages" in Ecclesiastes1:10), while the
rabbinic phrase הבא עולם [O]aLUM HABAh (the world to come)
suggests a twilight zone or afterlife beyond the realms of time and space. The
antonym עלם [O]aLahM or GHoaLahM (to disappear --
Deuteronony 22:1) is a spacial term, not a temporal one.
In theology, the two are synonyms, as in This World, the עולם [O]aLaM (world) as we know it, the Creator
is נעלם NELaM (invisible). Such are the rules
of the video game we live in.
Perhaps REALM is
related, if the R is unhistoric. REALM is currently linked with
IE root reg- 1 ( to move in a straight line). CLIME is another form of
CLIMATE. As for the other CLIMB, as in INCLINE and CLIMAX, one might connect
this word to $OOLahM (ladder) through the Greek klimax (ladder) and the
hard C (K), soft C (S) confusion. The alleged Indo-European root of CLIMATE and
LEAN (to rest) is klei (to lean). LEAN and LOUNGE (to loll - origin
unknown) may link up with LOON (to rest or stop for the night; to remain) and
the LEAN-TO (hut) with the (Mi)LOONaH (hut) see LILAC.. The Ayin can be
silent in the Edenic world word, leaving L and M.
interchanges with the other liquid, R, and words often reverse. So, [O]LaM is
not light years away from the Russian word for world, and its space station: mir.
Miedzinski suggests that ELIMINATE might link to the removed sense of עלם
[E]LM. ELIMINATION has
no Indo-European root, and the printed etymology is credited to a Latin phrase meaning out
of doors. Ava (as in חוה
or Eve who should know the language of Eden) also links ELEMENT to עולם [O]aLaM (world) . ELEMENTARY has no Indo-European root, and
Latin elementum referred to what they saw as the four basic realms of all
things: earth, air, fire and water.
does not derive from Ayin-Lamed-Mem. It is from Latin elimare, to
polish. Reverse to מלל MaLaL,
to rub B-Y).
