- 28 LexiLine Newsletter 2004 Questions on Akkadian and Baltic
The following questions on Akkadian were submitted to me concerning
the relation of Akkadian to Latvian (i.e. Baltic)....

late 1700's of the modern era (1771). There is no such thing as a
Semitic language (or people for that matter) - it is a fictional
Schloezer noted about the Baltic languages (on the basis of
"Latvian is very European ... having many common
root words with Slavic, Germanic, Latin and Greek;
indeed, many Latvian words even have an
unexpected similarity with Hebrew".
(Allgemeine Nordische Geschichte, J.J. Gebauer, Halle, 1771, p. 316,
LexiLine translation from the German.)
This occurs because as I have discovered, "Temple Hebrew" (i.e. the
most ancient Hebrew) is what we otherwise know as the Egyptian
hieroglyphs, which have the same language root as Latvian, i.e.
ancient Indo-European, viz. proto-Indo-European.
Sumerian is very close to Latvian. Akkadian is further removed
because the Sumerians (from the North, i.e. Latvian
ZIEMELI "northerners") mixed with the southern Canaanite
populations, resulting in Akkadian. In Lithuanian the term GUDDA (=
AKKAD) are the Byelo-Russians, i.e. a mixture of Baltic and Finno-
Ugric peoples, similar to a mixture of Sumerian and Canaanite
(Assyrian) whereby Gani or Ganini in Latvian means "shepherds" and
this is the root of Canaan whereas Azhi, Azhuli (Assyri)
means "goatherds" so the names Canaanite and Assyrian are virtually
identical in their original meaning. In Latvian azis is a billy-goat
and kaza is a goat so that the pastoral shepherd people of this
region known as Kazak (Cossack) will also be related. I.e. these
were the shepherds.

explained - it has been online for quite some time for the diligent
researcher. The Latvian DEKLA (DELE) also = "Venus" (my
identification) is also the same as Akkadian ITAR.
Sumerian (N)in.an.(n)a is a transcriptional and transliterational
garbling by the Oriental Scholars of Latvian Janina (gen.), i.e.
Janis viz. Jumis as the "ceiling of heaven", hence the feast of Ligo
Svetki or Jani (Janini is diminutive) is celebrated at Midsummer,
when the sun is at its highest in the heavens. This is in.an.na =
Janina. In Egypt these were the priests of "On", Babylonian "Anu".

Yes, these are the languages of the peoples which consist of blacks
mixed with whites - i.e. the mixed bloods or Arabs, which is the
same as Latvian RAIBIE = "colored, mixed", i.e. A-RABIA. Blacks and
the peoples of Asia Minor are the peoples specifically pictured as
enemies of the Pharaohs on artefacts found in the tomb of
Tutankhamun (which tomb we of course know to be the Ark of the
Covenant and all that was hidden with it - see

not be seen as racist - rather, Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves
only in 1860 in the modern era. Prior to that time, the entire world
was race-oriented, and, as recent conflagrations show, it is still
that way in many places. We no longer necessarily call it "color",
but can hide the concept under "ethnicity" or "religion", but it is
all the same.
The most ancient Hebrew language (Temple Hebrew), as well as the
Sumerian found in Akkadian and the language of the Old Kingdom
Pharaohs do not correctly belong to the Afro-Asiatic group but are
rooted in the ancient Indo-European language - which of course was
mixed with Canaanite over the millennia - but it was originally NOT
Hamito-Semitic (according to my research).

for the older tongues. Akkadian, the oldest of this alleged Afro-
Asiatic family does NOT use the alleged above described "root"
system, hence, it is a fiction of the linguists.

that the Latvian term DARBA "of work" viz DARB(a)S "work" is a
derivation of DAR plus the substantive forming suffix .BA (a suffix
of spatial location). The Latvian DAR is found in morphed form in
the Germanic prefix dar- as in German darstellen, darbieten, etc,
i.e. the general concept of "DAR" as "to do" became more
specifically used in other languages for a specific doing or work or
as a "doing" prefix, and in Arabic d-r-s then became a more
specified term meaning study (work), teaching (work), or the work of
learning, i.e. "work" just as it is used today in telling a student
to "do his work". We find this same term in Old Kingdom Egyptian as
the hieroglyph of the extended PALM of the hand (i.e. not
precisely "hand") which is delna (DEL.NA) in Latvian, i.e. R//L
permutation. The same R//L permutation is found in Latvian DAR- "to
do" and German LERn "to learn" LEHR- "to teach".
Latvian mac is a newer term rooted in the older concept of Latvian
medz which means not precisely "to do" but rather "to be able to do"
which later led to the English term mast-er, German meist-er and
Latin magister whence the hypothetical Indo-European root *meg. K, G
and DZ permutate in Latvian giving MAC, MAK, MEDZ.
The lexical method which I use quite successfully is generally
ignored by most mainstream linguists because they are presumably ill-
informed and ignorant of these matters and thus do not know what
they are doing. To make lexical comparisons you do not simply look
in ten different language dictionaries under the same exact word to
see if the words are similar, which is what the mainstreamers do
when comparing languages lexically - and consequently regarding the
lexical system to be less valuable than grammar (which is quite
false). That is the method of ignoramuses.
Rather, languages diverged in that certain terms relating to central
concepts were initially already different and then obtained still
different usage over the millennia in different - but related
languages. Terms relating to the "hand" are a good example. Today,
Latvian uses the term ROKA (Lithuanian RANKA) for hand, but note
that ROKA today also means arm - the Latvians have the same term for
hand AND arm. Actually very strange. So which was first? The
permutation of R and L gives LOKA "bent, bendable, bender" so that
the concept of the "bent" or "bendable" appendage gave the ARM
(related to ROKA RANKA) its name.
The flat of the hand - or palm - on the other hand was the Latvian
DELNA and this is the Egyptian hieroglyph D-, DUO-, which shows what
the Egyptologists erroneously call a "hand" whereas it is a "palm",
since the fingers are extended but closed, and not spread.
We then also have other terms for hand such as fist, German Faust
but Latvian Kulaks i.e. KU-LOKAS, KUK-LOKAS "clump at the end of the
The German Faust and English fist will be similar to Latvian (s)
piest "clench(ed)", where the word CLENCH C-LENCH is KU-LOKAS KU-
The English and German term "HAND" for hand is an s//k//h
permutation from Latvian sani "side", diminutive sanite > kanite
(whence count) >hand. Divergences such as these are extremely well-
suited to determine the date of separation of the various language
So, you can not just scour dictionaries, you have to know what you
are doing. What mainstream linguistics writes about the above terms
is Alice in Wonderland nonsense.
