Will skeptics warm up to Edenic COLD/SNOW from TSeeNaH


It hasn't hit 80 (28 C) here in the Galilee for two weeks.  That means that summer is over, and it is soon time to think about COLD again.

This amazing new entry will help you do that.

Only the versetility of the Edenic Tsadi (both dental and fricative. tooth-made and whistling letter) could be the source of all the words below.

SNO(W)       TSeeNaH        Tsadi-Noon-Hey

TSEE-nah______צנה______[TS-N-H à SN]

ROOTS: The  Indo-European (IE) "root" of SNOW is sneigwh (snow, to snow).  Old English snaw has lost the G or H guttural of the Edenic etymon, which the IE "root" is attempting to depict in their reconstruction.

The IE "root" also tries to have an N-W, to allow for NEVE, NIVAL, NIVEOUS and N-V "snow" words which do not belong here.

As seen in the global derivatives below, SNOW is not about white precipitation, but about cold. The Biblical citation for  צנה TSeeNaH puts this ice-cold equation on ice: "Like the coldness of snow" - Proverbs 25:13.

צנה TSeeNaH is sharply relevant to  צן TSaiN (thorn, barb) of the TINE entry.  The sensation of cold is sharp and piercing.

Switching to Tsadi-Mem, an antidote for cold is the warm wool of צמר TSeMeR (Leviticus 13:47). 

 Fricative-nasal words of coldness fromצנה  TSeeNaH (cold)  dominate the chart below; Semitic languages prefer the dental (D,T) side of  צ Tsadi.

Akkadian     dananu   coolness, cold (of snow); harshness (cold, weather)

Assyrian      dannatu   cold weather

                    dunnu       severity of cold weather

Sumerian     enten         winter

                    ten             cold, coolness

[Sumerian is Middle-Eastern, but not Semitic.  The Chinese below, Mandarin, Cantonese (Ct), the Vietnamese (reversed), much of the Dravidian and the Indonesian also favor dental-nasal. The data above, and the Dravidian (India) and Amerind below is from Fernando Aedo.]
