Rotation of An Arrayed Circle

Welcome in the Magdalenian club. You are now a provisional member. If you want to become a regular member in the full rights please give us a complete deduction of (car) tyres from Magdalenian TYR — he who overcomes, inverse of RYT — spear fighter, lance thrower, archer.

As matter of fact, RYT did not come as an inversion of TYR because the both words originated from the Ur-basis HOR-GON. For instance, the Serbian vocabulary has the word 'TERANJE' (driving, drift; cf. tyranny) whose history is very interesting; it appeared from 'gurkanje' (guranje /pushing/ > ceranje /driving/ => teranje /drive, drift/. In a combination with the ancient syllable BEL (HOR_BEL_GON) we acquired the Serbian word 'uguravanje' (ugurivanje => ucerivanje => UTERIVANJE to push in, to drive in). Modern scientists claim that the word 'drive' (O.Eng. 'drifan', Goth. 'dreiban', Ger. 'treiben') cannot be found outside the Germanic, but we can see now that this was a false presumption (Serb. UTERIVANjE => DRIFAN => DRIVING).

On the other side are the Serbian words 'RITANJE' (buck, jerking) and 'RIDANJE' (blubber, sob) which originated from the same HOR-GON basis (hurricane), ORIDANJE (great disorder) and the verb 'ORITI' (big noise, clatter). Of course, I think it would be unnecessary to remind you of other words likewise the Serbian 'uredenje' (order) and the Latin 'regno' (reign). There are a great number of the Serbian words coming from the "horgon" source: 'RAÐANJE' (birth), RAÐENJE, RAD (work), REÐANJE (rotation, sequence), RUŠENJE (subversion, disintegration, ravage), RUŽENJE (blemish), RIKANJE (roaring).

When prefixed with the primeval syllable BEL this words would obtain other meanings, usually adjectival: 'poroden' (born), 'poredano' (arrayed), 'porušeno' (broken, ruinous) etc. Compare Serbian 'POROD' (family, offspring, confinement, delivery, accouchement) and English BIRTH, either Serbian 'UREÐENO' and English ARRAYED (ARRANGED) or REÐANJE and ROTATION; Serb. RUGATI (monkey, gibe, sneer, jeer, roast, outrage, deride) and Eng. RAGGED (rag, ragging; harass with persistent criticism or carping).

Secondary ancient TYR syllable (from the "horgon" basis) could be found in different words in the whole IE area. Russian 'doroga/ doroga' has the meaning 'way', 'road' (there is no such a word in Serbian) and 'dorogoй' / dorogoy' means 'expensive, darling, costly, dear' (Serb. 'dragi' dear, darling). Let us compare it with the Englesh word 'drag' and Latin 'trahere'. Is there anything in common among the Serbian 'trag' (trace!!), 'traganje / traženje' (tracing), 'držanje' (holding), 'draženje' (irritation), 'drug' (friend) and English 'drag' (Lat. trahere).

Is the English 'riding' (road) an equivalent to the Serbian 'ritanje' (jerky movement of an animal, horse for instant)? Maybe, it is a cognate of the Serbian 'krenuti'; /go, move/ (imp. K-RENI! => German 'rennen'; race, run, English 'run'), where the initial 'k' is being excluded. Actually, we shall see that the Serbian 'ritanje' is derived from the noun 'KRUG' (HOR-GON, circle; Lat. circus); i.e. KRUŽENJE (circling) => KRETANJE (movement). The Greek γεράκι (falcon) is in fact the bird, which flies in circles similar to the Serbian 'orao' (eagle, Lat. aquila; hole, Serb. 'okolo' around?).

Now, it became clear that the Serbian 'KRUG' (from HOR_GON) was the central word for all the other words connected with all the kinds of repeating movements (KRETANJE walking, going, KRUŽENJE going in circles like falcon, TRAGANJE tracing, TRAŽENJE searching, TRČANJE running, KORAK pace, KORAČANJE walking).

Furthermore, we are going to see that the Serbian word 'druženje' (intimacy) is immanently linked to 'kruženje' (KRUG circle). Any social association, with the selected members, represents the one isolated circle (KRUŽENJE => DRUŽENJE). Of course, all the members of such a circle are the friends (DRUG) to each other.

Beside the Serbian 'teranje' (driving) there are the words as ISTERATI (force to live, to evict, expel), ISTERIVANJE (expelling, eviction), SATERATI (to corner), SATIRANJE (destruction) and ZATIRANJE (eradication) with the Ur-basis SUR-HOR-GON. Older variants of the above words were IŠCERATI and SACERATI. It is the reason why we have the Serbian word IZGURATI (expel, extrude). Sometimes I have to use these older Serbian words to clear some other etymologies, for instant, the history of the Serbian word CORAV (blind), which has come from the verb IŠCERIVATI (expelling; Serbian syntagma 'išcerati oko' take out an eye).

Some of the words derived from the basis SUR-HOR are very interesting; compare the Serbian word SUŠARA (dehydration room; Serb. 'sušiti' drying up), with the Arab çahra (Sahara; Lat. sicco, siccare). It seems no body connects the etymology of the English word 'dry' (O.E. dryge, drygan; drígian, ðú drígast to suffer, endure, Lat. indurare, durus) with the other words as 'drain', 'drainage', 'terrain' and 'endurance'. Obviously all these words sprung from the secondary ur-syllabic basis – TYR-GON (originally HOR-GON) and their central meaning was TERANJE (driving). The man who had been subjected to hard work was also exposed to great suffering (Serb. DURANJE, Eng. endurance) and, of course, those people who could endure a hard toil were called 'duratos' (the hard one).

Now we can clearly see where the Latin 'terra' came from, because the 'terra' is a solid (hard, Lat. duratos) part of the planet Earth.

Finally, who would ever have supposed that the English 'drinker' would have anything to do with either hard soil (terra and terrain) or with the Serbian word 'duranje' (endurance)? There is another Serbian word – 'po/DRIGNUTI' (belch, eruct) – which is equal to the Serbian verb 'poterati' (TERANJE driving, in this case expelling gas from the stomach). Among the Serbs there is a proverbial saying 'TRGNI jadnu' (drink one) when offering a booze.
