Low on Funds and Knowledge, "Scholars" Scrape the Bottom of the Barrel
The reference books tell us that FUNDS (money) comes from a Latin word meaning "bottom." Huh?! They are once again desperately scraping the bottom for racially acceptable (Indo-European) etymologies.Sorry bozos. I aint betting my bottom dollar on scholarship that leaves out the Semitic family where literacy developed.
abh-NATE_____ אבנט_____[(A)BN-DT --> BND]
ROOTS: The dictionaries do sense that a BAND BINDS into a BUNDLE. The theoretical IE “root” reconstructed for BAND is bhendh (to bind).
The strip of material that BINDS or BUNDLES a person is a belt. אבנטAhBHNaiDT is the belt, girdle, or sash that the priests wear in Exodus29:9.
There is no Bet-Noon-Tet word of BANDING or BINDING in the Hebrew Bible. But אבנט AhBHNaiDT appears to be proof that there could be such a verb; scholars of Hebrew call this reconstruction a“primitive root.”
BRANCHES: A BAND and a BANDAGE are related cloth BINDINGS. The CUMMERBUND, attributed to Hindi and Persian, is precisely this sash for the waist.
(CUMMER)BUND is tied in with BAND, BANANA, BEND, BIN (see “BIN”), BOND, BUND and BUNDLE at the IE “root” bhendh (to bind).
German Bundor Bundelis a waistband,any bundle or federation tied together. Belt-tightening in a speech, will make it bundig(concise, to the point).German winden and binden are the immediate source for the English verbs to BIND and to WIND.
The Persian equivalent is bando, and the Sanskrit is bandha. A related Sanskrit word is vant (to surround -- BD).
A FUND (ready money) is not from Latin fundus (bottom), but from FOONDaH (a "borrowing" from Latin in Talmudic Hebrew). The Latin term for a place to keep one's ready money is also the term for a belt, purse or money belt The origin of this belt word is our same אבנטABHNaiDT. The Edenic Bhet/BH shifts bilabials to the F of FUND. The Edenic Tet/DT easily renders a D or T.FUND (money belt) and אבנטABHNaiDT arejust a Noon/N and letter shifts away from אפד OFahD (to gird – see “PAD”).See “BIND” and “BUNTING.” -----------------So where is BOTTOM or Latin FUNDus from? Any middle N or M is always suspect, and reversing to D-F matches the dental-bilabial in BoTTom reversed, and certainly words like DEPth and DEEP. These are at the "DIP" entry, with other BT bottom words like BATH and BATHOS, from טבע DTaBH[A]h, sunk.
