SUMER SHiN[A]hR Shin-Noon-Ayin-Resh
(T)SEM-UKH______שנער_____[SH-N-R à SMR]
ROOTS: SUMER is an ancient city-state near the later Babylon. SUMERIAN is their long-dead but important language, because it is, somehow, NOT Semitic. As the language was recently excavated and documented, there was a group of Great-White-Hope historical linguists that, in vain, tried to claim Sumerian as an Indo-European language that could compete with antiquty with the Semitic tongues of the Near East.
שנער SHiN[A]hR, Shinar (Genesis 11:2) is the site of the “Tower of Babel”, referencing the nearby location of Babylon. Names of places should be a separate reference book, but Sumer/Shinar (only a nasal shift away) deserves the exception.
Could Sumerian, then, be the Edenic language, since the other like-speaking groups banded tother and emigrated to new homelands for their new (proto) languages? No, see the example below. The tyrant-king Nimrod also suddenly spoke a neuro-liguistic spinoff of everyone’s original Edenic, but he and his group of Sumerian speakers got to stay put in Sumer.
According to tradition (Deuteronomy 32:8, Genesis 46:27, Numbers 33:9) there were seventy instant varieties of the language of Eden (which devolved into our 6000 “languages” of today.)
The 13 Indo-European language families, the 8 African and 3 Native American ones (Joseph Greenberg), added to other regions and isolates, does make the 70 figure possible. Sumerian is classified as an isolate language, despite some similar vocabulary with Akkadian (dead, Afro-Asiatic … the Politically Correct, Bible-hating replacement of the term Hamito-Semitic.) For how Shem and Ever taught Ivrit, Pre-Hebrew or Edenic to a Chaldean named Abram and for a more detailed treatment of the Shinar/Sumer scenario, see the chapter in “The Origin of Speeches” (Amazon or LightcatherBooks).
BRANCHES: Example #1: Sumerian alam, dream < Edenic חלום [K]HaLOAM (dream) [DORM entry]
And why is alam the later corruption of Edenic, rather the earlier, more correct version
of the Hebrew חלום [K]HaLOAM? Because alam is meaningless. חלון [K]HaLOAN is a
window, and a dream is the window of the subconscious. A window is aחלל [K]HaLaL, space (related to חר [K]HoaR, hole) in a wall. Dropping the Edenic ח Het/[K]HeT loses the Edenic sense of the word. See “HOLLOW.”
Example #2: bad open < S-B S-D פתח PaTa[K]H, to open [PATIO]
No languages have a B-D root of “opening,” so Sumerian appears to have descended from the alien giants popular among Sumer fans. But bad is a bilabial-shift (S-B) and dental shift (S-D) of a wide global family of P-T “opening” words documented in the “PATIO” entry of the E-Word Digital Dictionary.
There are dozens more such examples in our Sumerian list.
