A Knowingly Ανάλυσις

What is the history of the word analysis (Gr. ανάλυσις, αναλύω)? Is the word analysis related to Serbian nalaz (finding; Chech nález) and adjective znalački (knowingly). The analogy "says" that the Serbian syntagm "nalaziti analogiju" (find the analogy) is a pleonasm. What "knowledge" has to do with an "analitical analogy" and Serbian words 'znalački' (knowingly; Czech znalosti knowledge) and 'nalaz' (finding)? Let's see (after a deep "analysis of knowledge") what our findings might be?

Pappekak! Slavic na- in "nalaz" is a prefix. Gr. "lysis" means anything? What "knowledge" has to do with an "analitical analogy" and Serbian words 'znalački' (knowingly; Czech znalosti knowledge) and 'nalaz' (finding)?

Paul J Kriha

I new, you are a big papak (papak is a pejorative Serbian word for an ignoramus of your caliber;literally it means 'a cattle foot').

Serbian pro-na-lazak (discovery) is double prefixed, is it not? :hat: If 'nalaz' is prefixed (and I agree it is), what is the meaning of the stem -laz-/-lag-? As you noticed yourself, Greek is also prefixed? Serbian nalaziti (find); snalaziti se (be intelligent; to be adroit), snalaženje (resourcefulness); snalažljiv (intelligent, adroit); hence Serbian znalački (knowingly, skillfully). Serbian s-na-laziti is also double prefixed; sf. iz-na-laziti (to find out) => znalački (knowingly)!

Simply, I asked you this because -laz-/-lag- is not the stem of the word 'nalaz'. The stem is na; i.e. g/na-, zna or na-. like in Slavic word nauka (science) or saznanje (cognition, discoveri), znanost(science); cf. Latin agnitio (recognition), agnosco; Greek γνωτος (known), γνώση (knowledge),σύνεσις (coming together, union, knowledge). If you are intelligent enough you will see by yourself that Serbian word sagnati (bring together) and saznati (find out, know) are clearly related to Greek σύνεσις and Latin science. All these words are derived from reduplicated Gon basis.
