THE ROOT POWERS By Anand Madhu

I describe the roots of Proto-P-I-E, a language of sounds which, in antediluvian times, gave birth to Proto-Indo-European (P-I-E), a language which in its turn gave birth to most modern languages. ... More > While PIE was put into written symbols by the Noldor High Prince Feanor (the Tengwar mystery) -- even before that, Proto-PIE existed as a language of sounds. The origins of Proto-PIE can be fragmented into disparate sources on average much more ancient than PIE; Proto-PIE coalesced to form PIE.We can't assign a single geographical location or time to where this language of sounds came from. Most nouns (labels for objects) are combinations of roots deriving from ancient root power sound names. See how good and guide were “sticky” characterizations of things associated with a certain God; it is thus that they got their names "GD". So it is for most nouns. Elegantly enough, the names of the ancient entities, the "root powers", became the roots of proto-P-I-E, variously permuting and combining, thus creating nouns.< Less
