In my Magdalenian thread I wrote these lines
KOD DhAG accounts for Hebrew qodash modern kadosh 'holy' Arabic mu'qaddas
'sanctified, holy, consecrated' Turkish mukaddas 'holy (of places)' Persian
mogaddes 'holy, sanctified, sanctuaries' and has a parallel in Italian casa
di Dio 'house of God' for a church. Further derivatives of KOD are for example
Hebrew xasa (chasa) 'find protection' and 'setér 'hidden place, secret'.
whereupon Ruud Harmsen replied (quote)
Which x or ch is that? Anyway, it's not a q. Q was already distinct in
Proto-Semitic and Proto-whatsthenewofthatwiderlanguagefamily. If there
is a connection in the more remote past, that is:
1) unknown to us,
2) highly unlikely.
So what is your evidence that such a connection has existed?
(end of quote)
I don't understand the question. My reconstruction of KOD for tent, hut,
dates from 2006 and was inspired by a comment by Douglas G. Kilday.
The word has very many derivatives, among them cottage, hut, shed,
German Kate 'hut' and Hütte 'hut', Latin casa English house German Haus,
French château English castle, French cité English city, then also hat
as casing of the head, coat as casing of the body, and many many more
examples I gave over the years, in fact it is a most basic word in
hypothetical Magdalenian. This year I added a few more examples from
languages in Asia Minor, especially Hebrew and Arabic. Those languages,
my claim, evolved from the Late Magdalenian spoken in the region of
the Göbekli Tepe 12,000 years ago, and were blended with Afroasiatic
languages. A couple of words are still clearly recognizeable, especially
in the regligious context, as I explained many times. When you look at
language evolution and development ('evodevo' in biological lingo) the
original K branched into various different consonants: K(ate) c(ottage)
sh(ed) h(ut). You have to learn to look at language the way it actually
evolved over time: along the flow of time, not against it.
