T H A N K S G I V I N G from Eden


THA(N)K             DaiGHah           Dalet-Ayin
DAY-AKH_____דע_____[D-KH à TH- +N-K]
ROOTS:  The Indo-European (IE) “root” for  THA(N)K, THI(N)K and THOUGHT is  tong (think).  These scholarly reconstructions of a language that never existed nonetheless often contain useful information about either the sound or sense of the word (rarely on both).   Germanic THANKS are just dental-guttural (see below), but the AHD keeps the  nasalization in their make-believe “root.” 

Edenic is an actual language. With a large literature (not disputed fragments) to establish meanings.

Thanking, acknowledgement is about knowledge.  In Edenic there is  דע   DaiGHah or דעה  DaiGHaH (opinion, knowledge, wisdom – Isaiah 11:9 or Isaiah 28:9).  דעת  DaGHa(S) is knowledge in Exodus 31:3 For Edenics, for lexical structure, justדע  DaiGHah   is best.  For “recognition,” there is ידע YaDGHah – like  the perception of Adam and Eve that they were naked (Genesis 3:7). 

More dental-guttural knowledge and  Dalet-Ayin  at  IDEA, ORTHODOX and “VEDA.”

A second theory concentrating on THANK involves the typically physical, body-oriented  nature of  Biblical Hebrew. The proposed second etymon is a reversed, guttural-dental:   קדד  QaDaD (to make a head bow, to duck the head as a gesture of acknowledment (Genesis 24:26).  Think Japanese businessman, and the ancient, Oriental customs of conveying gratitude and respect. The QD root appears in קדקד QaDQoaD (crown of the head)  – see  DUCK and HEAD.
Notice how DUCK resembles the  words of THANKS below.

BRANCHES:  THANKSGIVINGin Czech is dik; Danish tak; Dutch, dank; Finnish, kittos; German, danke; Slovak dakujem, etcThe Finnish favors our second theory here, more below.

 Does any language echo the Hebrew  תודה TOADaH or (S)OADaH (thanks)?  Maybe the Swahili asa(n)te  (thanks, nasalized and with a dental shift).  Related, is saying  מודה MoaDeH (I admit, acknowledge, give thanks). Perhaps when say Meda in Ghana, or  Mvto in Apalachicola (Florida Native American), they are channeling מודה MoaDeH from the dawn of our homo sapiens Edenic homeland.

A טובה DToaBHaH is a kindness, so maybe the following are dental-bilabial words of thanks:
Chuvash (Russia)                     Tav
Cherokee [western U.S.)   ß    Wado
Karaim (Trakai Lithuania)         Tabu

There are 100s of ways to say thanks. French merci acknowledges one’s mercy – see MERCY.

Acknowledgement is a positive comment, so Russian 'yes' is da.
We end with a few more Daled-Ayin possibilities, just languages from A-K :
Afar (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti)         Gadda ge
Alabamu (Texas USA) [informal]             Tá
Cantonese [Chinese] (China) [for gift]     Doh je
Dzongkha (Bhutan)                          Kadinche
Estonian (Estonia)                           Aitäh
Hiri Motu (Papua New Guinea)  Tanikiu
Hoi San (China)                            U de
Icelandic (Iceland)                        Takk
Inuktitut (Alaska)                               Taikkuu
Inuktitut (Noatak Alaska)                  Taku
