COWS OF OUR WORLD: The Final Roundup




 .Maybe HEIFER is the only English word from the Biblical Hebrew cow,  פרה PaRaH. or FaRaH (FRH à HFR).   As usual with animal names, the world prefers the more generic term (and older Edenic word) :  בקר BaQaR (cattle  -- Genesis 26:14). 

A major clue that this bilabial-guttural-liquid word  Ba Qa R  is the Proto-Earth or Edenic cow is that only the initial- bilabial or the end-liquid drops.

These animals were roped and corralled by Kinneret Pau and myself, with help from the major Edenicists like Fernando Aedo and Regina W.  You've got one? Send it in. There's lots of room.


S = letter shifts: [all vowels are interchangeable, no shifts needed]

S-B = bilabial shift [interchangeable lip letters: B, F,P,PH, V, W],

S-F = fricative shift,[interchangeable whistling letters: Soft C,S,SH,TS,Z]  

S-G = guttural shift [interchangeable throat letters: Hard C,G,K,Q]

S-D = dental shift [interchangeable tooth letters: D, T, TS]

S-L = liquid shift [interchangeable tongue letters: L,R]

S-N = nasal shift  [interchangeable nose letters: M,N]


N = nasalization (extra M or N inserted in the root).

M = metathesis (root letters switch places).

Notes: In many variants of CoW, it could be the bilabial ב Bet that drops. The  Koof and Resh could be in the right sequence, but the Resh/R has morphed into a W or V. (Cwazy Wabbit Rule).

Many lands, like N. America, did not originally have cows.  Many Amerind words are omitted as mere borrowings from Spanish or French. A few used words for bison or other ruminants.
