25. Vox Popvli [Aeon Journal $]
... than AEON. I assume from what Cardona had to say that I may also have misunderstood the role of Roger Wescott, the linguist to whom I was referring, and the roles of the other two linguists referred to (Marinus van der Sluijs, from the Netherlands, and Josephine Bacon, from the U.K.) However, I am not sure of this, and I leave it to Cardona to clarify these points if he thinks that is necessary. I would, of course, be happy to comment on any matters involving linguistics, either for Kronia Communications or for AEON. My apologies once again. Apologies accepted and, since Dr. Newbrook asks, no, neither Marinus van der Sluijs nor Josephine Bacon have ever acted as a consultant to AEON. Ed. Day Star Questioned E. J. Bond, from Kingston, Ontario, writes: Ev Cochrane has told us that the planet Venus was known by an epithet translatable as "Day Star" by various ancient nations: Slavs, Crow Indians, Polynesians, Indonesians, Maya, Sumerians. ...
26. In Memoriam: Roger Williams Wescott [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents In Memoriam: Roger Williams Wescott April 28, 1905- November 21, 2000 L. M. Greenberg The passing of Roger Wescott this past November marked a major loss to the scholarly world at large and the Velikovsky camp in particular. A true polymath, Professor Wescott was a voracious reader and prolific author whose published works numbered in the hundreds. Equally at home in the fields of linguistics and anthropology, Professor Wescott was also eminently capable when it came to dealing with the subjects of catastrophism, myth, and prehistory. He was a consummate academician who founded various departments and programs along with serving as an officer or editor for several distinguished organizations. His penultimate work, Predicting the Past, appeared only four months prior to his death and serves as a summation of a lifetime ’ s work regarding the disciplines mentioned above. In the words of Richard Heinberg, as they appear in the Foreword to that work: "As a cultural archaeologist, Wescott unearths and reassembles shards of ...
27. Horizons [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 2 (Feb 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Horizons REPORT ON C.S.I.S. FIFTH ANNUAL SEMINAR AUGUST 22-25, 1986 at HALIBURTON, ONTARIO: notes by DAVID ROTH FRIDAY EVENING: ROGER WESTCOTT: Catastrophes: Prehistoric, Proto-Historic and Historic. Although this was the title of his lecture, Professor Westcott, whose subject is Linguistics, gave an entertaining talk about words, their contrasts and their associations. His mainspring was the story of Tantalus, the Trickster and I think what he was suggesting was that, at some point along a line of research, one could be "tricked" into coming to conclusions on what might be flimsy evidence. His examples were naturally linguistic. He gave several pairs of opposites, such a saltationism vs gradualism, catastrophism vs actualism, etc. If one is too blinkered in one's adherence to one ism, one could be "tricked" into missing clues from another. Hence the importance of Interdisciplinary debate. SATURDAY MORNING: MILTON ZYSMAN: The Saturn Myth: A Challenge to the ...

... migrate." He states that "'ibrîm probably evolved out of h abiru (a fa'il form) into a Segolat of the forms fa'il/fi'l. We could reconstruct its evolution as follows: 'ab/ibray< 'ibrî with the afformative -aj, -ajum, î to denote either a gentilic or one's belonging to a certain class; compare Akkadian h upšu, Hebrew hopsî "freeman/peasant." I find very little to criticize in van der Veen's excellent use of converging and disparate lines of evidence and his convincing explanation of the linguistics with respect to these terms. He concludes with a review of David's possible role as a h abiru chieftain. In this he appears to tread on well walked ground, citing eminent authorities. My only wish would have been that he cite the not-so-well-known but competently researched article by Laura Gollop, "David as a Hapiru Leader" (Proceedings of the Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History, 1986, pp. 37-41)-- especially since he appears to be familiar with C&A.H, as noted in his bibliography ...

... is so apposite that the result is an immense concentration of facts or ideas into the shortest space. I wonder if, as a listener, any loss of concentration would have meant loss of track. However, when reading one can always go back and read something again or stop and ponder an idea before continung. This is just what this book merits- reading, re-reading and much thought. As Frederick Obear says in his foreword: 'Professor Wescott demonstrates the value of a transdisciplinary approach to learning.... ranges from linguistics to astronomy, psychology, poetry, sociology and alchemy. He enables us to look beyond boundaries to a more inclusive intellectual life, and to a future with a more highly developed and constructive consciousness.'

30. How And When The Americas Were Peopled [Science Frontiers Website]
... . Gruhn's abstract in the journal Man. "A study of aboriginal language distributions supports Knut Fladmark's hypothesis that the initial source of entry of peoples into the New World was along the Pacific Coast rather than through the interior ice-free corridor. The greatest diversification of aboriginal languages, as indicated by the number of language isolates and major subdivisions of language phyla, is observed on the Pacific Northwest Coast, in California, on the northern Gulf of Mexico Coast, in Middle America, and in South America. Following a conventional principle of historical linguistics, it is assumed that the development of language diversification is proportional to time depth of human occupation of an area. A review of the archeological evidence from the areas of greatest language diversification indicates a time depth of at least 35,000 years for human occupation of most of the Americas." (Gruhn, Ruth; "Linguistic Evidence in Support of the Coastal Route of Earliest Entry into the New World," Man, 23:77, 1988. Cr. E. Ferget.) Comment. Did that last ...
