Did some electromagnetic or other disturbance cause a unified community of humans in prehistoric Shinar (later Babel) to suddenly speak in different languages? Did the proto-Indo-European speakers, for example, then migrate north and east, with clans forming according to who spoke a similar proto-version of Sanskrit, Helenic, Germanic or Slavonic? We may never know.

But this book outlines how that diversification appears to have happened. A study of comparative grammars is not our focus. We will deal here only with vocabulary, with words. This is about the poetic and musical sides of linguistics, the sound of sense. I stumbled upon the science of linguistics only because it was a requirement in a doctoral literature curriculum. Some of the science of linguistics, like all science, was artistic. This book, then, involves both the arts and sciences. It is about the dance of the music of meaning among the tonalities that we call letters. And that music of sound and sense begins with the earliest language… which we shall call “Edenic.”

Could there have actually been a first modern human, a homo sapiens named Adam with a blown-out cranial cavity (Genesis 2:7) whose larger brain enabled him to name some animals (Genesis 2:19-20)? Let us investigate the possibility without prejudgement. After reading the chapter on animal names, and the rest of the book, some readers may want to speculate on the wider Genesis scenario and its implications. But an agnostic should be able to read this book without pain.

The heart of the book’s thesis is that all humans are in one choir, and that language is the music of meaning. It took several millennia, but now this book comes along to try and breathe life into this ancient thesis.

Prominent contemporary linguists have established that human language is hardwired into our species’ unique brain. How that wiring job came to be is not a concern of science. After reading this book, one should be more inclined to accept the fact that our uniquely-speaking species has language software and hardware that were intelligently designed for each other.

Our lexicographers occasionally publish mere hunches for etymologies, but they sometimes settle for the designation “origin unknown.” One such unknown origin belongs to the word LAD (boy).ילד YeLeD is a boy in

Biblical Hebrew; walid is a boy in Arabic. Lamed-Dalet (LD) is the root of birthing throughout Semitic. Once some anachronistic 19th Century, racist myths about different races and languages evolving from separate simian ancestors are discarded, many such language mysteries are solved. The Old School of linguistics maintains that human vocabulary is a man-made, chaotic mess. The new discipline of Edenics attempts to demonstrate that words are worlds … beautifully arranged into solar systems and galaxies.

This book is merely the newly-cleared tip of an immense iceberg.

Posted from Sefad where I have to occasionally interrupt our Indian Summer to prepare the 2nd edition of OOS.  Down to the last carton, I'm told.  You can't make bookstores wait.  I'll have to go slower with Araona.  It's Amazon or Amazonia.
