Metathesis and Nasalization


Transcript for: " Nasalization and Metathesis "

Slide #10
You may have noticed back at REEK and RA[N]K and SLIP and SLu[M]P That extra Ns and Ms were sneaking into words. N and M are nose-letters or nasals. Nasalization happens because it’s easier to say ARRA[N}GE than OaReKH, the Edenic word that means to arrange. In baseball or football, it is sometimes time to BUNT or PUNT. It’s easier to say BUNT or PUNT that Ba’ADT, to kick or strike out at in Edenic. There is also a whole chapter documenting NASALIZATION in English and other languages. English got the word BAMBOO from Malay in Asia. This hollow reed is the ABOOBH in the BiBle (that’s another Bet-Bet or B- B reed word, like PaPyRus and PAPER. Again, the extra M in Bamboo is from ABOOBH, any reed or tube. You know about letter shifts, so you can probably hear a PIPE, FIFE or OBOE. Arabic is an old Semitic language. Is it as old as Edenic? The Edenic K[H]aSiR, pig, became the Arabic chaNsir, pig. Older Edenic and even later Hebrew doesn’t nasalize words from any language.
Slide #11
There’s another chapter demonstrating how two of the three consonant letters of a root can swap places. This is called METATHESIS. Remember SPILL and SLIP? Our dictionaries can’t see that the SPC in SPECTATORS, SPECULATE or SPECTACLES are the same SCP in MICROSCOPES and TELESCOPES. The experts are far too SKEPTICAl of anything in the Bible, to consider how all these variations can come from Shin-Koof-Phey, SHaQaF, to look or see.
Slide #12
Inversion of the English or foreign word to resemble its Edenic source is not surprising: given that Western languages flow from left-to-right, while Semitic languages go from right-to-left. A lot of sound-alike letters are mirror images of each other: like Gimel and K, Tet and D, Kahf and C, and Resh and lower-case r. Inversions involves letters swapping places, much like metathesis. This is far more common with short, two-consonant letter words. Here’s a example with a three-consonant word. Daled-Bhet-Shin, DeVaSH means date honey, history’s first sugar. Reverse Daled-Bhet-Shin to get S-V-D in English letters. Mild letters shifts get us to S-W-T. SWEET, isn’t it?
Slide #13
Instead of the alphabet, borrowed from Aleph-Bet, here are English and Hebrew letters arranged by the part of the mouth used to make the sounds. Here are the interchangeable lip-letters, or bilabials. The interchangeable throat-letters, or gutturals. The interchangeable tooth-letters, or dentals. The interchangeable tongue-letters, or liquids. The interchangeable nose-letters, or nasals. And the interchangeable whistling-letters, the sibilants or fricatives. There is a seventh branch in our menorah of diversity, the apparently divine brain disturbance that created our 70 original language and national groups. That 7 branch involves the interchangeable vowels. Even in different neighborhoods of the same city, these vowels are pronounced differently. The well-established rules of letter shifting are called the GRIMM'S LAWS. But this observation was written about by the medieval French Bible commentator Rashi many centuries before the brothers Grimm.
Slide #14
Nasalization involves the nose letters or nasals. We touched on these a few slides ago, and perhaps you are now noticing how often an N or M appears out of thin air, which is not there in the word’s original Edenic form. Nasalization is always easy to pick up, and it helped disguise the Edenic origin of words. The most common English word is AND. Ayin-Daled, [O]aWD means "further, in addition, the source of the word ADD. But scholars didn’t figure out that "aNd" was a nasalized ADD -- also from [O]aWD. This slide shows how [E]eQaiL, bend, is behind nasaslized words like ANGLE, Angle-Land, England, and English. Nasalization is so natural that even the original form of Jack and Jacob, Ya’[A]KoBH, got pronounced as YaNKoBH and YaNkle by some European Jews.
Slide #15
Here’s a list of Edenic words, I’ll tell you the meanings, and you see if you can come up with the nasalized English word before the correct answer appears. ATiQ means very old. ABooBh is a hollow reed or pipe – but we mentioned it. DaTZ is to leap in joyous exultation. HaKeH is to look forward to something. NoePHeT is a flirty adulteress. RaK[H]aTS is to wash. SHooPH is to rub or polish. SHOAQ is the leg or thigh. SooaK[H] is to bend down, the source of SAG. SaPHaQ is to slap or clap. Resh-Ayin is either R[A]h or Ra’GH. It is mistranslated as "evil." (Edenic Resh allows for WR in English.)
Slide #16
Now here’s an interactive game with Metathesis, where letters from the Edenic origin have switched places. From the column of English words on the left, BESEECH (to beg for) lines up with the Edenic BeeQaiSH (to request) DARK lines up with QeDaR , black, sad DEGREE lines up with DARGaH (a step, a gradation) HaLT lines up with [K]HaDaL ( to cease or stop) GRID lines up with GeDeR (a fence… a similar GRATing or perimeter barrier of vertical lines – one often has to be creative to see these links millennia later) MARKET lines up with MoKHeR (to sell) TINKER (now is more like "fiddling with something" but a professional TINKER would repair broken household items) .. so it lines up with TiQOON (to repair,,,,, source of TECHNOLOGY). Some quick mind in your audience may have easily gotten all of these right.. Give them a PZIRE, I mean a PRIZE!

I have just finished reading a book called the bible came from arabia by kemal salibi. I noticed that many of his examples (of place names that refer not to palestine but to arabia) required or suggested a meththesis in order for the example to work. Not being a linguistics person (i taught german) this struck me as, shall we say, intriguing. now that I have seen your material I am more inclined to find salibi's stuff plausible. thanks.
