See the following German words, (… and corresponding Indian words).
You would think Indo-Europian theory of language is valid. But still such a theory might be adhoc and simply a manipulation of what we see in a few instances.
In my years of analysis of words and phonetics (and alternation of elements etc) this is what I observed.
There are two categories.
The first prefers Sanskrit as a language, or even any source.
The second one prefers arbitrary factors, what I call sun theory, it can be called as a Sanskrit hypothesis, that is analysis can lead to matching + unification, but not any particular language. I am for the latter.
These tricks are not exclusive to Japanese alphabet. I also used them to match with Odia alphabet and south Indian alphabet to remember. Check this out !
い ଇ ಇ ఇ
The “i” [said as e, as in english] has a component which is partially same (two circles, if extrapolated) in Japanese, Odia, Kannada, Telugu. That is actually how I remembered. Even in Odia, Kannada and Telugu the “i-symbol” is same.
Check: ଦି ದಿ ది [I have written phonetics di as in “the” in Odia, Kannada and Telugu] The vowel “i” which is written as a symbol on top of the letter is same in all cases, so that helps to remember what the letter is reading. [I already know my native speak Odia, so its much easier for me to remember this way]
I have come across tons of phonetics present in Indian words (in last few years, and sometimes updated on face-book) where the first part of the Indian word is either Japanese phonetics or a Chinese phonetics with the same meaning. I am just giving an example.
(so once the elements: consonant, vowels, conjugation and slight-alternations are effectively enlisted it would be easy to word-mine, that is, just take any random word from one language and check to see another word in another languages, and which ones eg Indonesian, are the same)
And you remember (I said many times) tons of Chinese and Japanese words have been made into English. eg genuine comes from Chinese: zhēn with same meaning.
(see also Japanese yuu = ev-phonetics going into Eng: evening)
Here is one example into Indianic language: Japanese kyuu (休) = rest or break. Indic: chhu(ti) = rest or break. [chuu = kyuu phonetically b/cos of c/k/s]
c/k/s is what I called slight alternations above. It means the c, k, s can alternate between themselves in usage in ways
in which phonetics changes but words keep same across even language
Here is one more: Plato. Plato is said to be BROAD in Greek. While Sun is clearly broad as it has to be in Sun theory, look what phonetics in Indianic matches so closely with that? In two attempts I found: Prasasta where the r/l and s/a/g/h etc [r/l means r and l alternate phonetically in their usage] So Prasasta / Plahata = Plato. Also failat (faila hua = spread = broad) whoever says Hindi is a recent and mostly foreign language will be surprised by its ancient phonetics. Prasasta is by the way conjugate of two words pura(na)+sat(ya) [purna satya = the full sun] hence satya = truth = SUN and purna = complete/transcendental SUN’s property as is formulated to be a SUN theory.
Eureka: The power of sun theory of language. The Bi (said as Be) in sanscrit (you can see the beauty of sun theory it immediately reads as sun+script, rotate it it still reads som+sikruta meaning approved by the Lords or approved to be SUN) My discovery was tedious and painful over couple years when I saw light (of sun). Linguistic light is always that of sun. But here is that eureka. The bi (said as be) of sanskruta is often said to mean: anti, without etc. But its real (sun theory origination) is from m/b alternation. Which is why me/ma/maha has alternated to-and-from be/bi(big)/baha/baja etc. They both mean: great (among other things such as Lord, Mother, Father, name f place: baja California eg) for the same reason that they correspond to Sun. (baja, bhaya etc are the phonetic alternation of maha/maga etc and both mean great or SUN)
So bideha does not mean without-body (bi+deha) but it actually means maha+daya (The great mercy, the great rise etc = Sun) which is bideha is a name of place/person etc in accordance with sun-theory as has often been proclaimed by me. (and its here that mahodaya=honorable, budha etc are the words that are created from it)
