The ALTAIC family consists of Turkic, Mongolian, and Manchu-Tungus languages.


Introduction:  The intention was to NOT include the many borrowings from Arabic in this brief, initial first linkage of Turkish with the prehistoric, pre-Hebrew called Edenic.  If you spot an Arabic borrowing, please contact mozeson [ AT ]    If there are evident elements of “confusion,”  (reversals, metathesis, shifts…)  then even an Arabic or etc. source was also neuro-linguistically altered from the primeval Edenic.


Symbol Key:


<   =  is “ultimately from the Edenic word ___.”

The [bracketed] word at end of an entry indicates an English cognate, and what to look up for more info in the E-Word Digital Dictionary.  (Available in download, CD, and soon in a print-on-demand paper format of minimal 3 volumes.)  The bracketed word, CAPITALIZED, indicates an entry name to see. Entries provide Biblical citations and/or Semitic cognates as further source words, relevant roots and cognates from other languages.  On occasion a Biblical citation replaces an entry name.

Bold indicates the core root being traced to Edenic (the Bible's Proto-Earth).


S = letter shifts: [all vowels are interchangeable,

   no shifts need be noted]

S-B = bilabial shift [interchangeable lip letters:

   B, F,P,PH, V, W],

S-F = fricative shift,[interchangeable whistling letters:

   Soft C,S,SH,TS,Z]  

S-G = guttural shift [interchangeable throat letters:

   Hard C,G,K,Q]

S-D = dental shift [interchangeable tooth letters: D, T, TS]

S-L = liquid shift [interchangeable tongue letters: L,R]

S-N = nasal shift  [interchangeable nose letters: M,N]


N = nasalization (extra M or N inserted in the root).

M = metathesis (root letters switch places). Example: M132 means that merk (to mark) takes the 1st, 3rd, then 2nd root consonant (no vowels) of נכר , to recognize (shift from Noon/N to M) and מכיר  MaKeeYR (acquaintance)

ß = reverse the (root letters of) the Edenic source word

B = a borrowing from another language. Only the more obvious borrowings are noted.


An unbolded part of the Turkish word is treated as nonhistoric, or unrelated to the Edenic source word. The unbolded part of the Edenic source word is not relevant to the match.

Notable Arabic borrowings are those that show Babel-babble from Edenic.  For example Turkish cenubi, cenub and güney (south) are from Arabic ganoub جنوباً , south.  They come from  נגב  NeGeBH, south. נגב    NaGaBH means dry, parched only in Hebrew and Aramaic, the main elements of Edenic.  

In the words of the above brief list, however, there are shifts, metathesis and reversals that are NOT from borrowings. These roots were in the minds of the Altaic tribe when it first left Shinar/Sumer/”Babel.”  The roots from Eden underwent a neuro-linguistic scrambling that only in our Information Age are we beginning to document.


Huda, God, ought to be borrowed from the Arabic-Islamic divine name Houda, Guide, but there are 3 ways to arrive at a clearer Edenic etymon, where H-D fits in global vocabulary, and is not merely a word borrowed from a meaningless  “confusion.” 1) It does mean “guide,” but the Arabic has reversed the ד-ח Dalet-Het/D-[K]H root of conducting (see “”SEDUCE”);

2) Huda is from  הוד HOAD, glory, splendor, majesty.

) The lost, primeval root is Aramaic חד   [K]HahD (one) and Edenic אחד   E[K]HahD, one…unity…singularity …oneness.
