Gospodin, Ospite And Gopas


Physicists go back in time for 13,7 billion years, so allow me to go back for 15,000 years. My Magdalenian word for hut is KOD, comparative form KOS. You may google for kod kos in the groups, and you'll find my derivations of KOD KOS and permutations, all in all a dozen words, in a message in my etymological thread. I am pleased to find many new versions of that word here in your thread, so it must have been a very important word, and probably much older, perhaps from the Aurigniacian? over 40,000 years old? As the art of building evolved, as tents became huts and houses and castles (note the kos form) with many different rooms, including storage rooms, the hypothetical words KOD and KOS split up into a lot of variants.

Why KOD and why not KOG? In this case, it seems that Serb. KUĆA (house) and hut (Serb. KATUN, koliba) are coming out from the geminated GON syllable (GOGNA, the same basis as the Latin cogno- /knowledge). Compare Avestan zanga- 'ankle', German Kni (Kniegelenk, knee), Latin 'genu' (knee), Lith. zengiu 'I stride' with the Serbian GEGANJE-GAŽENJE (stumping, shambling, walking). I talked about it recently when I tried to explain the history of the word 'goose', but I would say, no body understood what I wanted to declare.

Let us go astray from the main subject for a moment: look at the German 'Kniegelenk', a compound word constituted from KNIE (knee) and GELENK (joint); and if we compare this German word with the Serbian KOLENO (knee) and KOLENICA (knee of an animal, pork knee), we shall see that these words have appeared from the same source (GON-LI-GON). There are other words which look to be totally unrelated to the words as GAŽENJE, GEGANJE, GEHEN (GEGANGEN), GANG, although in fact there are: COLUMN; COLONNADE, CALENDAE and even the Greek ΚΟLΟΝ (large intestine, food, meat; limb!!!) and KOLΟΝΑ (column, pillar).

In Russian 'host' is 'hazyain' (hozяin) and that 'host' is the Serbian 'GAZDA'; on the other side there is the Russian 'hozяйstvo' (hazyaystvo), equal to the Serbian 'gazdinstvo' and to the English 'husbandry / economy'. In addition, Serbian word KUĆENJE means 'economizing'; compare it with the Serbian HOĐENJE (walking), HODNIK (corridor, hallway), KUT (angle), KUTIJA (box)…

Now, I hope, everyone is able to see clearly the source whence the English 'house' and 'husband' sprung.

Additional data for an extraordinary BRAIN gymnastics κιβώτιο (box), οικία, οίκος, οίκημα(house, home), οικονομία, (economy); οικοδεσπότης (host); καλύβα (hut, Serb. koliba); Serb, KONAČIŠTE, KONAK (Gr. ξενώνας hostel); the place where I was born is bearing the name GOSTELJA (Serb. Gazda <=> Gost relation Host <=> Guest); am I not born in a HOSTEL? He, he, he…

Interesting: Ital. ospite (from Lat. hospito host) and Serbian 'gospodin' (sir), GOSPOD (god!) are the words from the same origin Hors-Bel-Gon (Skt. gopas = shepherd; metathesis gopas > gospa); GOPAS-ODIN(Russ. odin ađin( one) SHEPHERD – THE ONLY ONE (Jesus is the good Shepherd); Latin 'hospito, hospitare' and Serbian 'gospodariti' (tyrannize, dominate, reign, prevail, overrule), 'gospodarenje' ruling are obviously the branches from the same stem.

There are more miracles to come… Stay tuned!
