41. I Samuel and the Habiru Problem [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... fail to develop their ideas on this group fully, e.g . who were they in practice, the whole of Israel or only part of that community. Some assumptions, e.g . that the Habiru were a non-settled element (as per Aharoni) are probably not justified. Their claim that the Habiru and Ibrim may be etymologically related is not documented with adequate evidence. This is constructive criticism, for van der Veen proceeds to examine each of these issues in depth, and his conclusion that the Habiru and Ibrim do broadly correspond to one another is strongly supportive to the New Chronology. Van der Veen begins his assessment proper with the Habiru, giving a detailed ...
42. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... Earth. But, even here, the subject deserves a lot more study than has yet been allotted to it. Even so, these ideas should be aired, and I thank Ms. Perkins for bringing them up. Ogam and Grain Richard M. Smith, from Banning, California, writes: In dealing with my question regarding the etymology of Gaelic grian, that is "sun," [7 ] Dwardu Cardona stated that Ogam/Ogham is a form of Goidelic. However, Goidelic is a language while Ogam is a writing system that was occasionally used for other languages besides Goidelic. Cardona also stated that Ogam is derived from Latin and that it is not older ...
43. The Origin of the Devil (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... devil appears in black, because he is a personification of the powers of night; the Hebrew satar, to disguise oneself or, rather, to wrap oneself in darkness, should be noted; and Surtr, the name of the black' fire-demon of Teutonic mythology, should be compared. The name of the Egyptian god Set is also etymologically connected with Satan.1The dragon never appears without noise; neither can the devil refrain from making a horrible din; the Hebrew word shet also means noise, turmoil of war, describing the part Satan played in the raging cataclysm. We are told that the word devil' comes from the Greek diabolos, and it is rendered as ...
44. Chronos And Kronos [Journals] [Kronos]
... Gods, II, 25): "Saturnus was chosen as the one to have as his province the intervals and cycles of time. In Greek this god is called by the very word time, since Kronos is the same as chronos, that is, time. We call him Saturnus because he saturates himself with years." The etymological connection of the two words Kronos and chronos has been positively affirmed by some linguists and strongly denied by others, because, on the one hand, the semantic similarity of the two words is evident and, on the other, from a technical linguistic point of view, the difference between the K and the ch is most significant. ...
45. The Egyptologist's Electronic Forum [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , by members (personals or off-topics), by authors and publishers (new books), by institutions (jobs, lectures, etc.). January 1999: 1.

46. Notes and Queries [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Hill. A piece of quite extensive common land still exists on the summit. It clearly was much larger until recent times. No gold has ever been found in the area, so the name is a bit of a puzzle. Medieval records (in the local library) prove the antiquity of the name. A local antiquarian suggested the etymology is derived from golden flowers of the gorse bushes which may have grown on the common. However I suggest the origin lies in a golden goddess, a variation of Aine (bright, shining, burnished). A few miles to the west, overlooking a steep valley, is a Glory Hill, which may have a similar etymology ...
47. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... a "star" was born, or fashioned, within the cosmic egg. That the cosmic egg was a "star" can also be verified through Dogon lore where the star in question is called po, translated as Digitaria, (14) concerning which it is said that "po tolo, Digitaria star', has a hidden etymological derivation from polo to, profound beginning'." (15) It is also said that: The latter [i .e ., po/Digitaria] lies at the origin of things. God created Digitaria before any other star'. It is the egg of the world'... as it developed, it ...
48. From Venus with Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... first place. Merrily, the president of the United States and the General Secretary in the Kremlin over the Hot Line are exchanging their experiences while being serviced by their beautiful private secretaries: the President of God's Own Country comes, and in his ecstasy hits the red button, leaving mankind with a movie's length of final lovemaking = coming. Etymology must begin with the study of Arno Schmidt and James Joyce who purposefully used and analyzed etym addressing. Etymology is not at all the successful tool Lowery makes it out to be when, e.g ., he points to the reconstruction of the ancient Egyptian language: the decipherment of the hieroglyphs was not an achievement of etymology, ...
49. Child of Saturn (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... (dividere), and assumed that the first form of the name was Divanus. A third hypothesis suggests a form Jana, sometimes employed for Diana, of which the root dius or dium evokes the idea of the luminous sky."(5 ) A. B. Cook put it simply when he stated that "the most probable etymology of [Janus'] name," corresponding with the series Diviana, Diana, Iana, can be traced through Divianus, Dianus, Janus.(6 ) He concluded that: "Ianus [the same as Janus], therefore, can be legitimately connected with dius . . . a word familiar to us in the phrase ...
50. Night of the Gods: The Stone [Books]
... deities are changed to stone (see Index). There are a black lake, a black precipice, and a Black Stone of the Swarthy -Llyn Dar, Clogwyn Dur, and Maen Dur Arddu-near Lower Llanberris;141 and I have come across the (fallen) worship of the Black Stone in an out-of-the way place. In Kilian's Flemish-Latin etymological dictionary, 1574, under the word Alve, is given from some nameless rhymester a long catalogue of all the terms for demons known to the writer. Among these figures "zwarte Pict," black Pete. But it is obvioul that Peter has naught to do here except, as in saltpetre (sal petrae), in the ...
