Edenic WordAYN + SHayNaH
Alef-Yod-Noon + Shin-Noon-Hey
1) Taking the prefix of INSOMNIA
first, IN- is from the Indo-European root ne (not). AhYiN is "not" (Genesis30:1); אין AYN means "there is
no" or "none" - Genesis37:24. See NO. A
shortened negative prefix isjust אי Aleph-Yod,EeY (ISamuel4:21).
In Ancient Egyptian, not is nn.
The negatives listed at Indo-European ne include A-, ABNEGATE,
AN-, ANNUL, ANNIHILATE, DENY, NAUGHT, NAY, NEFARIOUS, NEGLECT, NEGLIGENT,
NEGOTIATE, NEITHER, NEUTER, NEVER, NIHILISM, NIL, NIMIETY, NIS, NIX, NO, NON-,
NONE, NOR, NOT, NOTHING, NULLIFY,RENEGADE, RENEGE, and UN-. Note the ease with
which these negatives swing from vowel-N words to N-vowel words. More at
NO. Of course AINT should be a contraction of am and not.
There may be some even innate influence from AYN (there is none).
2) Latin somnus (sleep) is the immediate source of
words like SOMNAMBULENT and SOMNOLENT. Somehow, the given Indo-European root is swep
(sleep), which takes in such different sounding terms as SOPORIFIC (see below),
SOMNUS, and HYPNOSIS.
The first recorded man is already asleep by Genesis2:21.
The noun שנה SHayNaH (sleep) appears in Genesis31:40,
where Jacob has lost sleep from counting too many sheep.
Shin-Noon related terms are שאן SHAhN, to rest
(Jeremiah 30:10), and שאנן SHaANaN, to be at rest, tranquil, at ease (Isaiah 33:20).
Reversing the fricative-nasal
of sleep is the eternal sleep of the Mai(S), dead see CHECKMATE.
(1). Nun meansnothingness in Ancient
The negative prefix IL-, used in L words like ILLICIT or
ILLEGAL is said
to be a variant of IN- ( as in INSOMNIA above). Aleph-Lamed,
AhL, means no (Genesis19:17), don't or naught (Job24:25). For the liquid-guttural root of ILLEGAL see
Reverse vowel-L for Lamed-Aleph, LO (no). The prefix ILL-
(from Old Norse illr, bad) could be related to the negative etymons here
or to terms like [A]VeL (injustice, wrong see EVIL).
(2). If one needs an SN sleep term that
includes the M of SOMNI-, there's SNOOMaH ("slumber"- Proverbs6:4). SLUMBER is a Noon/N to L change away from תנומה ( S)NOOMaH. There is no B in German slumber:
"tranquil" or "to be at ease"; see CHANGE for
more nuances of human sleep. Polish sen is dream or sleep; senny
means sleepy. Eskimo sleep, sinikpok, begins with SN. So does Russian sneetsa
(dream) see DREAM for the sleep-drean connection. Spanish sleep or dream is
sueno. Korean chim (sleep) makes one consider COMA a possible
cognate. In Japanese the close echo of Edenic sleep was slurred to suimin
(sleep). Sleep seems to have been abbreviated to shui in Chinese and to
si'e among Indians of Washington State.
Japanese has both
fricative-nasal and nasal-fricative sleep words. Suimin means sleep. Shindai
is a bed. Imasu is asleep) as in nete imasu, hes
asleep. Szundikal (slumber) in Hungarian should be from SHayNaH
(sleep). (QahL is light in Edenic, so szundikal/slumber could be a light
sleep.) In Polish sen is sleep,
dream, and sennosc is sleepiness.
words are available at DORM and NUMB. Seniors are full
of sleep, see SN age at SENILE. SHAhN, to rest , and SHaANaN, to be t ease, reverse in Japanese
(typically) to give us ansei (repose, rest) and anshin (peace
SOPOR (from Latin) and SOPORIFIC
are traced by the AHD to the Indo-European root of INSOMNIA, swep- 1 (to sleep). Someone was too drowsy
to notice that SOPOR was the same fricative-liquid-bilabial ( in different
sequence) as SLEEP, and the nasalized SLUMP. See SLEEP , we SLUMP into
SLUMBER, from שפל
SHaPHeL (low, brought low). Hittite
(extinct IE) suppar is to sleep.
