Interdict - antar-dikS(h)T

Mon, 06/22/2009 - 10:08
Interdict - to intervene

antar - inside, in-between

dikS(h)T - dikS(h) + t -> dikS(h)T - Present Participle - seeing, directing. "S(h)" is Cerberal Sibilant Sound 'S' and "T" is Cerberal "t" sound. Past Participle would be "dikS(h)it".

As one can see, the Sanskrit sounds and spellings are more subtle and English (and European Language) takes an approximation of the sounds as one uninitiated speaker would do when copying something that was invented elsewhere, which is the case for the Speech and Languages.

Immigrants most of the times, when migrating, are not able to keep their authentic culture as it was in their homeland. Such is the case in cooking, religion and languages.

AC_FL_RunContent = 0;var interfaceflash = new LEXICOFlashObject ( "", "speaker", "17", "15", "", "6");interfaceflash.addParam("loop", "false");interfaceflash.addParam("quality", "high");interfaceflash.addParam("menu", "false");interfaceflash.addParam("salign", "t");interfaceflash.addParam("FlashVars", ""); interfaceflash.addParam('wmode','transparent');interfaceflash.write(); entertainment - en-ter-teyn-muhnt

1. the act of entertaining; agreeable occupation for the mind; diversion; amusement: Solving the daily crossword puzzle is an entertainment for many. 2. something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement, esp. a performance of some kind: The highlight of the ball was an elaborate entertainment. 3. hospitable provision for the needs and wants of guests. 4. a divertingly adventurous, comic, or picaresque novel. 5. Obsolete. maintenance in service. Origin:
1525–35; entertain + -ment

antar - within, something between

tRp - to be satiated, to be pleased, to relish - is verb root

tRp-t - makes it Active Present Participle. It could have been Passive Past Participle but an "i" would have shown up before 't', and it would make it as "tarpit", which means "satisfied".

tRp-t-mant - makes it Passive Present Participle. Singular is "tRp-t-mAn". One who gets satisifed (passively).

tRp-t-Atman - Satisifed Soul

So we have four choices:

antar-tRpt-mant - One who gets satisfied inside (passively)

antar-tRpt-Atman - Soul who gets satisfied inside (passively)

ananta-tRpt-mant - One who gets satisfied in un ending way (passively)

ananta-tRpt-Atman - Soul who gets satisfied in un ending way (passively)

English - better, Urdu - bhetar, Sanskri - uttar

Sun, 05/31/2009 - 05:10
There is a Sanskrit rule called "Samprassana" or making of Vowels into Consonants, where "u" becomes "v", "i" becomes "y", and "R(i)" becomes "ar".

So "uttar" is a comparative pronoun and it becomes "vattar" which becomes "better".

"b" and "v" are two sounds that get intermixed.

Like a Bengali Indian would say "Bijoy" instead of "Vijay" (note "a" becomes "o" also).

Same way the state of Bihar was actually called Vihar during its golden period, literally meaning Paradise (another word taken from Sanskrit and Persian, and is actually "para-desh", the state beyond, which is heaven).

Now it is another matter that it has become a "Bekar" State (useless), but still produces many Intellectuals but most of them chose to go to IAS (Indian Administrative Services) only to become corrupt Beauracrats.

Or "Varma" becomes "Burma" or "Varman" becomes "Burman". "Varman" is the generic noun root which means "chosen one" or "the best", e.g., because you choose the best. "Varma" is Singular Subject Noun.

Yes that brings to "Uttar Pradesh" which has become "Ulta Pradesh" (the upside down State).

propagate - pra-paa-gaat, pra-apa-gaat, pra-paa-aa-gaat, pra-apa-aa-gaat

Fri, 05/22/2009 - 06:34
propagate - to move forward following a pettern of dispersion

pra-paa-gaat, pra-apa-gaat, pra-paa-aa-gaat, pra-apa-aa-gaat

pra - prefix to self forth an action denoted by certain verb root.

paa - to obtain (but unlikely as in sanskrit forming compounds of 2 verbs is something I can not think of immediately).

apa - prefix for underaway

aa - prefix for "towards itself"

gaat - going. The root is "ga" which means to go (wow see the connection in sound and how the "a" of learned becomes "o" for the unlearned), and "gat" or "gaat" is either present participle meaning "going" or past participle meaning "gone".

Pamela,Pamella, Pamila, Pamilla - Premilla, Premila, Prem-i-Leela, Prem-i-Lila

Thu, 05/21/2009 - 11:30
This just shows yet another Indo Europeans spreading out from a common root, which the modern scholars have tough time locating to a physical place.

Prem - to love, to show love.

Lila - is the act, the play.

missing "r" just shows the westerners had a tough time sounding "cereberal sounds" where the toung has to curl up and touch the palate. In Sanskrit, we have 5 + 1 sounds, and only "r" has survived as semi-vowel as part of the semi-vowels, "y", "r" "l", and "v"(one cal also include "h". which is spoken soft stop and counter part to "ah", which is visarga, the unspoken hard stop).

Hypothetically - and not really correct - if "a" is a hard vowel, then "ah" can be taken as hard aspirated vowel, then "h" can be taken as soft (semi) vowel, and "hh" can be taken as aspirated soft vowel - but in reality we taken "a" as a soft vowel and do not have "hh" as any vowel.

So "a" is kept seperate, and "ah" and "h" are taken as counter parts, one as "visraga" hard aspirate and the other as "h" soft aspirate, even though "a" is taken as a soft vowel and removed from the pairing.

Further "ah" can become "aR", "aS", "as" and "ach" sounds when following Sandhi or Phonetics Combination Principles of Sanskrit Sounds.
