Hebrew Word

אדם ערץ


Aleph-Dalet-Mem + Ayin-Resh-Tsadi






Greek demokratia means rule (kratein) of the people or land (demos).

A. The DM Greek term for land and people resembles  אדם ADahM (Adam, man, Man)

 and   אדמה ADaMaH (ground, country, region). Humankind is formed "of the dust of the ground"

 in Genesis2:7.

B. Greek kratein (rule) is a KRT term akin to  ערץ GHeReTZ, power, force and GHaReeYT(SOOT) or [A]ReeYTSOOT (tyranny - Jeremiah15:21). 


Daespite seemingly good sound and sense correspondence, TYRANT (no Indo-European “root”) may be closer to RaDaH (see RAID) than to the [A]ReeYTS (tyrant).

A. The given Indo-European “root” of AUTOCRACY, DEMOCRACY, or DEMOCRACY is kar (hard). Greek kratos (strength, might, power) and the Indo-European “root” relate to QeReN (horn; power of men or states  – see  CROWN and the Hebrew-English Lexicon of the Bible).    See ARISTOCRACY

In Navajo (a Na-Dene isolate among American Indian languages), In Navajo (a Na-Dene isolate among American Indian languages), dene means the people – like אדם ADaM, man, Man (Genesis 1:27). Uto-Aztecan man, person is otam ; in Maya  (Itza dialect) ajton (man) <  S-D   S-N     אדם .  

In Igbo (Nigeria) madu means human, while mmadu is a person.   We may get turned around, but we are all humans.

 In Luyia/ Bantu  omundu (person)  is a reversed and nasalized  אדם ADaM.

DEMOCRACY is listed at the Indo-European “root” da (to divide) along with DEME, DEMOTIC, DEMAGOGUE, MEDIURGE, EDENIC, EPIDEMIC, and PANDEMIC, a better Indo-European so-called “root” for this "land" term might be dan (low ground). DANISH and DEN are traced to Indo-European “root” dan.

Dan and ADaMaH (earth, ground) ought to link up with words like dam (earth for the Kiowa Indians), din (ground in Thai), tanah (ground in Malay), tian (field in Chinese) and timani (mainland in Eskimo).In Saami, the Uralic language of Lapland, land or earth is aednan.  In Latvian, duna is a mass of moist earth or mud.   MUD might be an MD reversal of the Hebrew etymon.

Nasalize that MUD and one gets French monde (world), Spanish and Tagalog mundo (world).  ADaMaH (earth), even if spun on its axis, makes a fine source for these words and for the Indo-European “root” mundus (women’s cosmetics, also world). The AHD adds for this source of MUNDANE (worldly), “Latin noun of unknown origin; possibly from Etruscan.”  French mond and Italian mondo (world) also is the Edenic AdaMaH (earth, land) reversed and nasalized with an extra N.   ADaMaH also means ground, while standing one’s ground is [A]MeeYDaH.  The shift from Aleph to Ayin, and the metathesis of DM to MD doesn’t prevent Ayin-Mem-Dalet, standing, from being an important relative.  Forms of [A]MahD mean stand, establish,persevere, stand fast and faithfulness; [A]MOOD is a pillar in Exodus 13:22. A nasal shift away, in Japanese, antei means stability and steadiness.

ADaMaH also means a land, not just land or soil. It involves “countries” in Psalm 49:12.  This is why reversing the Dalet-Mem/DM and nasalizing it (extra N) gives Spanish mundo (world).

B. GHaReeYTS means tyrant; GHeReTS means power. ARISTOCRAT and AUTOCRAT are also from Greek kratos (power or rule).    More אדם ADahM, man, at DUMB. More D-M earthiness at DUNG.
