Renew, rebirth and resurrection. I and Z.





The whole of linguistics is pseudoscientific because it ignores semantics.
For example, we can observe a very strange phenomenon. I'am going to make a simple list with words that I think their semantics are related. The list is:

renew
rebirth
resurrection

Etymologies:
1833, from re- + birth (n.).
early 13c., from a Scandinavian source, cf. O.N. *byrðr (replacing cognate O.E. gebyrd "birth, descent, race; offspring; nature; fate"), from P.Gmc. *gaburthis (cf. O.Fris. berd, O.S. giburd, Du. geboorte, O.H.G. giburt, Ger. geburt, Goth. gabaurþs), from PIE*bhrto pp. of root *bher- (1) "to carry; to bear children" (cf. Skt. bhrtih "a bringing, maintenance," L. fors, gen. fortis "chance;" see bear (v.)). Suffix -th is for "process" (as in bath, death). Meaning "parentage, lineage, extraction" (revived from O.E.) is from mid-13c. Birth control is from 1914; birth rate from 1859. Birth certificate is from 1842.
late 13c., from Anglo-Fr. resurrectiun, O.Fr. resurrection, from L.L. resurrectionem (nom. resurrectio) "a rising again from the dead," from pp. stem of L. resurgere "rise again" (see resurgent). Replaced O.E. æriste. Originally a Church festival commemorating Christ's rising from the dead; generalized sense of "revival" is from 1640s. Also used in M.E. of the rising again of the dead on the Last Day (c.1300). Resurrection pie (1869) was schoolboy slang for a pie made from leftovers of previous meals. Resurrectionist, euphemism for "grave-robber" is attested from 1776.
renew 
Late 14c., from re- "again" + M.E. newen "resume, revive, renew;" on analogy of L. renovare.

An empirical significance is attached to those etymological analyses that fail to follow the semantics of those words. Since those words are two words-combined, it’s needed to divide them in a second list:



From Latin
From Norse
From PIE
From old English
re
re 



birth

byror bher

new



neowe, niewe
surrection
surgere 














Etymologies as of the compounds:

new 
O.E. neowe, niowe, earlier niwe, from P.Gmc. *newjaz (cf. O.Fris. nie, Du. nieuw, Ger. neu, Dan., Swed. ny, Goth. niujis "new"), from PIE *newos (cf. Skt. navah, Pers. nau, Hittite newash, Gk. neos, Lith. naujas, O.C.S. novu, Rus. novyi, L. novus, O.Ir. nue, Welsh newydd "new"). New math in reference to a system of teaching mathematics based on investigation and discovery is from 1958. New England was named 1616 by Capt. John Smith; Newfoundland is from 1585. New World to designate phenomena of the Western Hemisphere first attested 1823, in Lord Byron. New Deal in the FDR sense attested by 1932.



Resurrection is a compound verb from resurgere "rise again". Re is a Latin prefix and it means "again". In this case re- is used with a verbal root surgere "to get up, to arise", but in Albanian re is an adjective-adverb and it means "new". Zura(e,i) is a verb form of Albanian. Zur- has a very long list in the Albanian dictionary; in one of them it means “to make".

In Albanian the gender is too important, and it has some bearing for the language semantics too. In linguistics the notion of gender is distinguished from the gender of the physical world and the plurality. In linguistics, plurality as a concept is being limited only to the concept of quantity. To definite the two concepts the linguistics bases on a arbitrary one-dimension selected criterion, but the feminine and the plurality concepts are semantically related. It is possible for words pertaining to the gender to be consistent with their respective semantic gender: producing other things, the "feminine" makes the plurality of persons or things as well, changeability, and portability.


In general, in gender languages the concepts related to the general concept of "give birth" are feminine. Most of the language gender concept is so subtle and it needs a long term to be explained. Anyway, I will determine it shortly: In the language every thing that is similar with the woman concept is feminine. For example, the earth is feminine because it gives birth to plants, animals, and every living thing. In Albanian toka means "earth" is feminine, and if it is "new" should be used the adjective re which is the feminine gender of the adjective for "new". So, there are also feminine in Albanian some trees, plants which bear fruits and flowers such as molla 'apple', lulja 'flower', dardha 'pear', kumbulla 'plum', vegetable food, etc. There is also a very interesting semantic fact about seasons. The seasons that are producible to the plants are feminine: pranvera 'spring', vera 'summer', vjeshta 'autumn', except dimri 'winter' which is masculine because it is semantically the season of nature dying, when the life is in abundance. After death the nature always resurrects. The mother earth will birth new life of physical world. That was the language-mind point of view of our ancestors about physical world gender and language gender and it is not meaningless.
Other examples from Albanian may illustrate the gender concept relates also to the space-time reproduction of the language objects such as drita ‘light’ as a feminine, ralated to a feminine dita ‘day’ and a feminine nata ‘night’.

The semantic of gender in Albanian can lead on these generalizations for the feminine class:

1. Sex- based genders of humans and animals.

2.  Producibility : The Objects of the physical world that can produce, or can be producible infinite times: trees, vegetables, fruits, flowers, etc. Plural and "give birth" concept class.

3. Changeability: The phenomena of physical world that change their states repeatedly: day, night, light, dark, moon, etc. Changeable and Plural concepts class.

4.Portability: containers in general and kitchen equipment such as: cup, spoon, plate, mess tin, tray, etc.

A renew, rebirth, resurrection is a feminine language concept.

However, there is a common surrogate traditional accepted etymology: It comes from Latin fēminīnus, from fēmina 'woman' that Curtis and other philologists referred to"she who suckles," from root of felare "to suck, suckle".

There is also a common surrogate with the traditionally accepted etymology of the Hebrew noun for “woman” אשה ‘isha’ comes from איש ‘ish’ “man”.(Some think like the first recorded human sentence was a written sentence, not a spoken one, moreover that sentence included an etymology. Very interesting!)

Re-zure, Re-ber, and re-nje ( nji, njo, nja, një) are the Albanian combinations completely different from Latin and the supposed PIE theories, or whatever.

It is pretty simple to find out the semantics of the resurrection, renew, and rebirth distinguishing the complex whole of those words into their elementary before-words, which came from a previously language stage. For the resurrection they are: "re", "zure", "rezure" which fortunately exist today in Albanian. Their Albanian semantic combination is "make new". The "rebirth" is  as easily to find its roots from Albanian "re" 'new' and "birth" 'made, is done'. Their Albanian semantic combination is the same as the word resurrection "made new" . Also, the "renew" would be pretty elementary to break down it if you know Albanian to the "re" and "nje" which you know already , which mean "a new one".

In contrast, the “re” ‘again” of Latin and the “re” ‘new’ of Albanian have a huge difference on their meanings because every “repetition” does not have the new “concept” on it. The “again” meaning is for saying that something happens or someone does something one more time when it has already happened or been done before. While every new is recently made, and never happened or used by anyone before. The "new" never is an “again” or a “repetition” Such accepted etymologies are pseudoscientific because they arrive at their conclusions without follow und understanding their pretty elementary semantics.
