|The central argument against the Indo-Europeans
is to disprove their theories by using a paradigm composed of 10
homonym words from the English, French, Spanish, Italian and Latin
Languages. The homonyms in the paradigm will help demonstrating that
they all have exact Arabic cognates. Based on their first occurrences,
the origin of these homonyms can be found, half a millennium, earlier in
Classical Arabic. These are the following:
1- sear, sere,
sore, 3- Sera,
Soir, 4- swart, 5- sur- prefix, 6- sierra, 7- sirrah, 8- sir,
9- sour.10- Serre, serry, serried.
THE THIRD CASE: SERA, SOIR
Sera, Soir, Evening,
Throughout history, evening has primarily
been a time of resting and sleep for humans, since little work or labor
can be done in the dark. Evening and/or night is often associated
with danger and evil, because bandits and dangerous animals can be concealed
by darkness. The belief in magic often includes the idea that magic and
magicians are more powerful at night. Similarly, mythical and folkloric
creatures are thought to be more active at night. Ghosts are believed
to wander around almost exclusively during night-time. On the other
hand, exciting romantic activities also flourish during the night . As
the Arab desert dwellers were drowned and lost in the depths of the desert
at evening, it is no wonder that the theme of the evening featured
prominently in Pre-Islamic Arabic "ghazal" poetry:
Here are some samples from one of the most flamboyant poets of pre-Islamic
The evening in the poetry of Imruw-al-Qays:
"Oh long night, dawn will come, but will
be no brighter without my love.
You are a wonder, with stars held
up as by ropes of hemp to a solid rock."
"We returned at evening, and the eye could
scarcely realize her beauty
For, when gazing at one part, the eye
was drawn away by the perfection of another part."
"He stood all night with his saddle and
bridle on him, He stood all night while I gazed at him admiring,
and did not rest in his stable."
"As though all the wild beasts had been
covered with sand and mud, like the onion's root-bulbs. They
were drowned and lost in the depths of the desert at evening."
In the Islamic calendar, one of the many
techincal terms for evening/night In Arabic is _sirru_
(see the various definitions in the JPEG attached below.)
This Classical Arabic term was borrowed
into Old French as_ al-Seir_ and is shown below depicted
from an old French dictionary c. 1160 A.D. Actually
the term appeared in French. Contrary to what we were led to
believe, that the Medieval Latin _ cero_ or _
is the origin of the term in many Romance languages (French, Romanian,
and Italian), actually it was borrowed from the Classical
Arabic via Old French which is dated from the end of the 10th
century, hence earlier than the Medieval Latin
c. 1190 A.D.
