ROOTS: Latindamnare is to condemn or fine.
דן DahN is to punish or "judge" (Genesis15:14). דין DaYaN is a judge (Psalms68:6 see DEAN). דין DeeYN is law, judgment, justice, litigation
and, in Deuteronomy17:18, a legal plea as in to DUN. The
theoretical Indo-European root for DAMN, DAMAGE and CONDEMN is dap to apportion
(in exchange). טעם DT[A]hM is a judgement or decree (Jonah3:7).
DT-MN antonyms at DUMB.
DEEM is to judge; a
DEEMSTER is a judge. REDEEM and REDEMPTION (to make amends, atone for guilt);
relate to other DM terms like DAMAGE, Latin damnum (lessor injury),
INDEMNITY, and INDEMNIFY (to make reparations). All these relate to DahM
("bloodguilt" - Exodus22:l).
translate DahM as literal blood makes for awkward translation in verses like Leviticus19:16 ("Do not profit by the blood of your
neighbor"). The context clearly wants us to not profit by the damnum
(Latin for injury or loss) of our fellow man. In many other verses the
bloodthirsty translators failed to see DahM as a legal term of damages due, a
relative of DahMiM (value, cost), of DiMaY (fee) and, of DeeYN (DOOM,
judgmentt). Tet-Ayin-Noon/ DT[A]aN is to sue or claim.
DEMON, DOOM are all judgmental terms. (MiI)DeeYNaH (province) literally means
jurisdiction. The city of MEDINA, near Mecca, Saudi Arabia was once a largely
Jewish city before it was ethnically cleansed. As law implies jurisdiction,
this D-N M family has a bearing on words like DEMEAN, DOMINATE, (KING)DOM, etc.
suffix of words like FREEDOM and SERFDOM are from the jurisdiction of DOOM and
DeeYN (law). See MADONNA and ADONIS for many D-N M
terms of mastery from ADOAN (master).
In Chinese dian
is law or rule; ding is to pass judgment. Tham is to try or judge
in Vietnamese. Japanese handan
is a judgement; handan suru is to judge.
jurisdiction terms are stamped in money words, including Spanish dinero,
Italian denaro and perhaps Russian dyengi. The reference books
try to make the Latin dinarius non-Semitic by insisting that the coin
originally contained ten asses (Ernest Klein), believing that DNR sounds
like Latin decem (ten).
