Is MAN a species, a believer, artist or counter?

Nov13

Words like M-N are common around the world for MAN.  There must be ONE origin for all of them. Of course, this should be Edenic.  But  w h i c h Edenic word. Here are some possibilities. If you favor one, or find a better one, please let us know.

MAN            M’ahN            Mem-Noon

MA-UN_________מן_________[MAN]

ROOTS: Old English man(n) is traced to an Indo-European “root” spelled man- or mon (man).

In Aramaic  מן M'ahN means someone or anyone.


MANKIND might also be named for 'kind' or specie,  מין  MeeYN - Genesis 1:21.  Calling humankind a MeeYN (species) would designate the unique specie (with language),  or as though to say 'our own kind.'


More MN species at MONEY.

Rabbi Daniel Lapin cites the   א-מ-ן Aleph-Mem-Noon root of belief, faith,  – see AMENABLE.  Man is the only creature that can believe in something unseen.

More  מ-נ   Mem-Noon approaches to Man below.

 

BRANCHES: Cognates include LANDSMAN, MANIKIN, MANNEQUIN and MEN.

אנוש  ENOASH (man, human – Psalms 9:21) recalls man in German and Yiddish: mensch.  MAN in Turkish is insan; in Malay it's manesh, mon, or omani.


This last term echoes a fine alternative etymon for MAN -  אמן OaMahN (craftsman, artisan - Songs 7:2).  אמון  AMOAN is an artificer or builder. Sounding even more like HUMAN is Assyro-Babylonian ummanu (artist).


See MOON for Man the thinker.  Nan is man in Chinese; namja is the Korean.

HUMAN and MONKEY are primates who share the use of a hand, the MN counter  – see MONEY.  Not only does OaMahN(OOT) mean the characteristic handicraft or handiwork of MAN, but  ימין YaMeeYN is the right hand  (Jeremiah 22:24) and the right hand side.


Latin manus (hand) links up COMMAND, COMMEND, COUNTERMAND, DEMAND, EMANCIPATE, MAINTAIN, MANACLE, MANAGE, MANDATE, MANEUVER, MANICURE, MANIFEST, MANIPULATE, MANNER, MANUAL, MANUFACTURE, MANUSCRIPT, MANURE, REMAND and RECOMMEND, with words like מנה MaNaH (to appoint, mandate, assign, count and hand out).



The MN hand words of Romance languages are found at MANUAL.

For Hebrew  איש EaSH (man) see EACH.

MahN-DeeY is a Biblical Chaldean phrase meaning “whoever” according to the Hebrew-English Lexicon.of the Bible.

The pronoun “who” is close to “the one or the MAN who.”

The hand is the counter, (fingers preceded calculators), see מנה MaNaH (to count) at MANY.


 A double- nasal “Man” term is so common around the globe that researchers like M. Ruhlen and J. Bengston consider it to be Proto-Global (what we call Edenic).  Examples include:  African mun (Somali) and umuntu (Zulu),  Asian manjar (Condi) and South American mano (Wanana). Chinese min X456 is translated as “people,” but belongs here with the M-Ns of Man.


See MASCULINE for other MN men, like  Dutch mens, German Mensch, and Indonesian manusi. These might be MS words that are nasalized forms of  מת  MahS (person).
