... Kabah and Uxmal." -{ Travels in Yucatan. vol. ii. p. 122.) This is unquestionabIy one of the calcades to which CogoIludo refer, as running out from the shrine of the Working Hand at Uxmal According to the communications of the Indians to Mr. Stephens it extended to Kabah. We might venture an etymological conjecture that this, too, was another shrine of the Workinng Hand, Kab ul; a conjecture supported by the fact that the red hand was conspicuous among the ruins of Kabah, - ruins exhibiting many correspondences with those at Uxmal. We may observe here that Kab in the Mayan language signifies a hand. 16. Yucatan, ...

32. Sandal-straps and Semiology [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Not so, say our betters: the Greek words within it are kata and strophe (turning) and refer to that part of an ancient drama in which occurs the denouement; the plot, having reached its culmination, descends, often precipitously. In a plea for the innocents, I would suggest that what we know of Greek etymology is based upon late sources. We know only several hundred words of Minoan and Mycenean, catastrophe not among them. Homer and Hesiod do not employ the word, and they are the earliest of our Greek sources. I am fortified in my opinion that catastrophe originally meant disaster (dys-aster) by more than this lack of sources of ...

33. The MacCecht and Cuchulainn [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , when they were called the Picts and largely inhabited the northern parts of the country where they had been pushed by later Celtic arrivals. The next major group to arrive were the Fir Bolg of Ireland and the Brigantes and related tribes of Britain who can be identified directly with the continental Belgic tribes. They were also called Erainn which is etymologically similar, it seems, to Iran and Aryan. The suffix an or ain has the meaning of light' or fiery' according to O'Rahilly and it does not just reappear in fianna but also in the names of gods and goddesses of Ireland such as Anu, Danann, Graine, Cuchulainn, Fionn, and Manannan [5 ] ...

34. What's in a Name? -- Venus "The Newcomer" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... A necessary consequence of this is that the word would have been invented especially to name the goddess and could not have existed to be applied to the concept of "love" until its patron had been "born", named and (for whatever reason) assigned her area of work. Both these postulates, however, are contradicted by etymological considerations, which clearly indicate that the word did exist at a very remote period of antiquity. Before we go any further, therefore, it would be as well to take a moment to forestall accusations of blinkered specialism and to "legitimise" the etymological arguments Principles of Linguistics Etymology is one of the oldest-established branches of linguistic science, ...

I read in the Oxford English Dictionary on Etymological Principles (Vol. II p.4028 of microprint edition), "the earliest occurrence so far noted is in the Boston Transcript of 15 April 1840. In this and two examples from April and June the meaning is not clear, but the explanation oll korrect' appears on June 18..." Then, "1840 ...

... argued on pp. 18-25). Moreover, the second usage, occurring as it does only in the second millennium, argues for an earlier date for these passages in 1 Samuel when H abiru, functioning as auxiliary troops, was still a known fact. The author also proposes a means by which h abiru and ibrÓm might be both etymologically and grammatically related. The opening syllable h a is universally agreed to as representing ayin. The second consonant has occasioned a seemingly endless debate based on alternative renderings in different languages and scripts without being conclusive, Van der Veen cites tandem authorities to redress the tendency to conclude that the "p " sound is the original in H abiru ...
