[QUOTE=Soldier of Macedon;9941]The word for 'language' in Greek is [B]Glossa (Γλώσσα)[/B], whereas the word for 'voice' in Macedonian and Slavic in general is [B]Glas (Глас)[/B], while in Russian it is [B]Golos (Голос)[/B].

There must be a relation between these two words as 'language' and 'voice' can both be in reference to speech. Given that all of the Slavic languages employ this word, it cannot be a loan from Greek.[/QUOTE]
In Church Slavonic, [B]Glasu (Гласу)[/B] can mean 'voice', 'sound' or 'word'.

In Tsakonian, which is claimed to be a descendant of Doric, instead of Glossa they use Groussa for language, if this is a bastardisation of the former word, when did it take place?

Spartan 01-23-2009 05:03 PM

I think "Glossa" would be the bastrdization of "Groussa", if indeed Tsakonika is the older language.And if indeed Tsakonika is derived from the Dorian dialect of Greek that would make it the older language , I would think??

What do you guys think??

Soldier of Macedon 01-23-2009 11:14 PM

But Glossa is recorded in Ancient Greek texts in that form, is there any evidence of Groussa in ancient texts?

Spartan 01-24-2009 02:26 AM

Not that I know off

osiris 01-24-2009 03:09 AM

this is a fascinating subject and it intrigues and excites my curiosity great post som.

ancinet greek didnt have many sounds ir sh ch zh b

also the natural changes that sometimes occur when a word is adopted by a foreigner, look at what happens when macedonians for example twist english words. so will we ever know how those thracian words really sounded.

[QUOTE=Slovak/Anomaly/Tomas;9989]SoM, check this out:
So what do you make of it Slovak? What we have here is clear evidence of a variant of the word 'Serb' recorded as early as the 2nd century. This would support the notion that the Latin word 'Serv' derives from the noun 'Serb' rather than the opposite.

How do we reconcile this with the works of Porphyrogenitus who claims that the Serbs come from White Serbia north of the Danube, centuries later?

Do we know when the word 'Serv' was first used in Latin to represent a 'Slave' or 'Servant'? Could the name have been inspired from the area where most slaves were taken from (at that point in time) by the Romans, ie; Serbinon?
