But before that, as usual a small preface The World’s Oldest Known Literary work - the Vedas – the root source of the Indian and Hindu Philosophy and Spirituality – are written in Sanskrit.“The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could not possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source which, perhaps, no longer exists; there is a similar reason, though not quite so forcible, for supposing that both the Gothick and the Celtick, though blended with a very different idiom, had the same origin with the Sanskrit; and the old Persian might be added to the same family” So said Sir William Jones – the English Philologist who for the first time in 1786 suggested in his book “The Sanscrit Language” that Greek and Latin were related to Sanskrit and perhaps even Gothic, Celtic and Persian languages were related to Sanskrit.Be it Greek Latin English Hindi Lithuanian – Sanskrit is the mother of all Languages.Even Scholars like Voltaire, Immanuel Kant etc believed that Sanskrit was the root of all Indo-European languages. About PIE – No idea, they are all linguistic experts who created this language, Oops, I mean its existence – for the language itself is not known yet.
Well, the irony is that till today there is no literature in the world about the so called PIE.
I am not an expert to speak on PIE, might be those who speak about it are experts in this language All I do is present below a list of English words which are derived from Latin/Greek/Persian which are in turn derived from Sanskrit.
These Sanskrit words have today silently formed a vast majority of the Original English Language! And then I explained to him the Sanskrit source of various English words and he was quite surprised – not because he didnt knew it all these days, but because he had failed to recognize the obvious phoenetic connection that existed between words in his Indian language (which is again derived from Sanskrit) and similar sounding words with similar meaning in English!
So I thought I better pen down a list of all such English words derived indirectly from the ancient Sanskrit.
Isnt it amazing that today we have so many new words created in English like Computer, Processor, Monitor, Internet, Hardware, Software etc that it is almost impossible to create words with similar meaning in other languages and so instead we will have to directly import these english words into our languages to keep pace with the rapidly evolving new terms“Any language during the time period of its peak usage as a spoken language will have its words imported into other languages that exist during that period.
Just like the way Sanskrit words which got imported into Greek, Latin, Persian, etc during the peak usage of Sanskrit.
