An  Edenics   FATHER'S DAY


Are you discovering for the first time that El Papa, the Pope, and that beloved Dude we call DAD are from words for father (PAPA) and lover in the language of the Bible?


Well, Father's Day is a good time to unmask our true patriarchs.


Our many forms of double-dental (tooth-made) DADDY words  are  from ד-ד Dalet-Dalet in the DAD entry.


and vowel-bilabial (lip-made) or  bilabial-vowel PA words are  from  א-ב Aleph-Bhet words in the ABBOT entry in The E-Word CD Dictionary (over 1000 pages,


First,  a global tribute to PA, PAPA, POP, POPPA or PAPPY  from   אב AhB, Aleph-Bhet, father, teacher, originator, vivifier.


The American Heritage Dictionary has some chutzpah (nerve) to call 'papa' 'a linguistic near-universal' and 'a child's word for 'father' ', but then to go on and list it as an 'Indo-European root' along with their other fractionally useful fictions.


Before crossing ABBEY Road, know that Greek  abbas,  the title ABBOT (father superior of a monastery) is immediately from Aramaic  אבא AhBAh,  father.   Abbas is the informal 'daddy' to Arabic abu (father).   You'll hear אבא AhBAh,  daddy, called out on any Israeli street.


Arabic and even Aramaic are post-Babel versions of the grandpappy of 'em all:  the Proto-Earth we call Edenic... whose antiquity and meaning is established in the Hebrew Bible, not a few archeological artifacts debated by the 'experts.'


Edenics is about Ultimate, not Immediate sources.


Latin has used papa for the POPE, and papas for an educator.  The Ixil tribe of Guatemala call father pap.  Another  אב  ABH shifted  to PA is Sinhala (Sri Lanka) pi-yaah (dad).  From the Romans come English words like ATAVISM,   as avus means grandfather or ancestor in Latin.  Bpoo is the grandfather term in Thailand.


A brief  sampling of 'fathers' around the globe includes: ab (Tsimshian, B.C., Canada),  apa (Colorado, Equador; Hungarian),  ba , baba and fu  (Chinese),  baba (Persian, Swahili), babe (Kurdish), babbo (Italian), baba (Javanese, Turkish, Taino and Swahili), bap (Hindi), bapa (Bahasa Malaysia), bo (Vietnamese) pa (Vietnamese),  papa (German; Luyia, E. Africa), papan (Algonquian), papaz (Turkish), paw (Thai)  and ubaba (Zulu). 


Fu in Bilau (Papua, New Guinea) means “origin,” reversing our vowel-bilabial etymon. Chinese fu is a husband, and term of respect for an elderly man.

F-U is much like PA.


Words like FATHER, Dutch vader, Farsi (Iran) pedar, German vater and Latin pater  all have a dental-liquid T-R suffix that is found in Old Iranian.  Its meaning is uncertain, but it is found in family names (mother, brother, sister, daughter).  The suffix disguises the usual MA and PA elements, or the reversal of  אב A(V), papa.


Second,   DAD   and DaDDY words from דוד  DOAD,     Dalet-Vav-Dalet, (uncle, any beloved male relative),

דודי DOADeeY  is 'my beloved in Songs 1:8, 9, 10, and the related “lover” term is ידיד YiDeeYD.


Japanese, otto,  means husband.    In Igbo (Nigeria) the address for an older male family member is dádá.      


Global DADS include:


Aroana (Bolivian Amazon) tadi, Aztec tahtil, ta, Basque aita (father) and aitatxo (dad) and  aitaita  (grandfather),  Czech, Irish and Latin daid, German Vati, Greek tata, Inca tayta, Inuit ataatak, Hungarian atya, Latvian tetis, Lithuanian tete, Nahuatl tatli, Polish tatus, Quechua tayta, Rumanian tata,  Russian dyadya and otets отец, Sanskrit tatah, Sumerian ada, Tagalog tatay, Turkish ata , Yiddish tate, Welsh tad .


The Japanese word for 'father,' chichi, seems not to fit.  But it is from the older titi. Perhaps the strangest, most stretched-out  double-dental word for DADDY  is Sinhala (Sri Lanka) thaahth-thaaah.


Among native North American DADDIES there is: Algonquin tatag, Biloxi, adi, Cherokee udoda, Hidatsa tatis, Hopi taata, Kenora taitas,Micmac tatat, Minetare tanta, Navaho ta, Omaha dada and Otchipwe dede.


 A double dental for a beloved male relative who is neither one’s father or uncle is Sanskrit dada (brother).



In Star Wars Darth Vader croaks, 'Luke, I am your father.'

Did you first discover today that vader is Dutch 'father?'


May every day bring you discoveries of your true ancestors.
