During the last two decades many foreign historians and researches clearly found Greek words at the languages of Inca, Aztecs in the Southern and

only greek words do exist, but also very ancient Greek naming of locations such as in Chine, whose southern region is called Yunan = Ionia etc.
I'm afraid that's an outright lie that you've been fed.
These "linguists" are not linguists. They are people who read language dictionaries and look for words that they think SOUND like the langauge they
want to prove as the "great historical language."
A real linguist looks at the way words are built and where the word roots come from. If a language has many word roots in common with another, they
are related. They must also have the same function... a verb in one language can't be a noun in another if the two are related.
In the original Greek, "onoma, onyma" mean "name". This went to the Latin with "nomi" and also meant "name." English, related to both, has
name and nominal and nominate (all having to do with name and naming) and pseudonym (name again) -- used as the same parts of speech and in the same
And it's not just one word. It's a thousand and more words that follow that same thing... Latin and Greek roots that form a word in English, used
in the same or a similar sense.
English IS related to Greek.
BUT... that is not what these "linguists" are doing. Their methods are to hunt through a dictionary to see what words are "sort of alike" and
then say the two languages are related.
If I use THEIR methods, I can prove that Greeks learned their language from the Star Trek aliens, the Klingons -- just like this:
"Ghobe' " is Klingon for "no." A Greek word for "no" is "ochi" which sounds like the Klingon word. Therefore the Greeks learned the
word from the Klingons.
The Klingon word "tangqa" means a tank-like animal and the Greeks have a word "tank" that means... tank. So therefore the Greeks learned their
language from the Klingons.
I could make a dozen other examples, too, just by matching Klingon words and Greek words and then say the Greek language came from ancient Klingon
Do you see how wrong that reasoning is?
That is why their statement that "these languages are related" is not to be trusted. And no linguist (person who really studies languages and can
speak many languages easily) says that all those languages are related.
