Studying a foreign language at school, at the Institute, we, of course, noticed that some English (French, German, etc.) words phonetically similar to Russian. for Example, day, night, sister, brother, mom and dad, heart, sit, video, audio... cut the hearing with their familiarity, but here's to wonder why, we don't seem to have guessed. Put your finger up, if at least once thought about why this or that object or phenomenon is called so, and not otherwise.
Let's ask this question now. Is the presence of such words makes us doubt that someone borrowed these words from someone? The moment of chance, random coincidence with such obvious phonetic and graphic similarity, taking into account, moreover, their common, along with Russian, semantic component in two (or several) European languages, is simply impossible.
Large domestic experts, academics - pagans claim that such resemblance is understandable... youth of the Russian civilization, and hence the youth of the Russian language. Let us understand that our language was influenced by much older European languages, whose representatives taught us the words and meanings that we, in Russia, they say, was neither in everyday life nor in the worldview. However, Russian academics have not invented anything of their own. All these false postulates were pronounced and canonized 250-300 years ago in the West, when linguistics as a science, in fact, appeared and rose to its feet.
It turns out, Russian men many hundreds of years did not identified themselves to the concept of sitting, and sat down on a bench just like that, without meaning. And it lasted until the Latins, the English or the Germans came and taught us the right words. If Barbara's wife called her husband Ivan to dinner, she did not say: "van, sit down-to eat soon, dinner is getting cold!"Well, Ivan couldn't say: "come on Varya, bake quick cakes, visit us!"because English stand (meaning standing) Ivan and Barbara did not know.
Of course, all these sound, phonetic similarities are not accidental. The probability of such frequent coincidences is negligible. We've talked about this before. But we will repeat more than once.
Russian people in the enlightened West used to be considered cattle. All of that can be attributed to the Russian, it is possible to merge bad, negative, it always got. As a result - about Russia, about Russians, about their ancient memory still try to wipe feet, openly declaring that Russia-Russia the second-rate state, the country of the third world. Here was a redneck, was dominated by slavery along with human sacrifice barbaric Russian gods.
Then we ask them a question, and where, in fact, you, the British had the word sit? Did you invent it yourself? It turns out that there is. Not themselves. Was in us some ancient Latins, the Latins, who gave us the English vocabulary. Therefore, the alphabet we all have the same, Latin.
Moreover, it turns out that the mythical Latins tried their best. Not only the English gave their words and meanings, they put, but also took care of other European Nations: Spaniards, Greeks, French…
And if so, let's talk. Who and from whom could borrow, even the same, the most common words in everyday life? Without which no culture could exist in the past? After all, even the dense aborigines in loincloths have in their vocabulary words denoting the most elementary concepts in everyday life and life. For example, the names of domestic animals, river or sea fish, kitchen utensils, various master tools and devices, clothes, as well as derived words-actions( verbs), such as, say, how to watch, run, think, chop, cut, twirl, etc.
Of course, you can invent anything. For example, separately floating in the Atlantic in the 40-50 km from the Western shores of Europe to the English island was settled and developed much earlier in mainland Europe, the Central plains, the Urals, TRANS-Urals and the Siberian lands... And you can say the opposite. For example, our ancestors first inhabited the mainland, gradually spreading the spatial area to its outskirts, and only when they reached the shore, washed by, say, the same Atlantic, and at the same time, by the way (!), already knowing how to build ships, opened and mastered, finally, the future of the UK. but not Vice versa. Logical?
