Though I usually don't follow you with your Stargate ideas (to me it's just a silly TV show with cheap CGI effects, sorry), this thread here should
have gotten far more attention. For I think you are quite right. I can't really see anything with the op that is wrong, though I choose to trust you
in the phoneme transitions, since I haven't really looked into this with the languages in question, but as far as I can see it all sounds legit.
Have you heard about this guy called Verner and his linguistic "law" called Verner's Law about similar consonant transitions in Germanic languages?
What's extra fun with this guy, is that he was an amateur like myself, and mostly self-educated. Could you please direct me to your sources for your
consonant-shiftings in the given languages? Time and place is essential here, for these sounds shift over time and from place to place, where
typically /e/ becomes /a/ or the other way around, /v/ becomes /b/ or /f/ and so on. There are often quite strict seemingly doctrinal mechanisms
behind these changes, but they seem to happen all by themselves, as history's progressing.
ἄβυσσος "Abyssos" is the Greek name for the "Bottomless Pit", could this have been simply one of the oldest cities of Ancient Egypt,
? And Ἀβαδδών "Abaddon" also sounds rather similar and is the Greek name for the
angel of the Abyss or 'The Bootomless Pit'.... Then again, this is according to Greek tradition if so, and this far back predates the Greeks by
millennia. And according to Wikipedia article earlier in this §; «The English name [Abydos] comes from the Greek Ἄβυδος, a name borrowed by
Greek geographers from the unrelated city of Abydos on the Hellespont.» The ancient Egyptian name was «Abdju» ==> Apsu anyone?!? Fascinating
Anyway, thanks for the read, keep up the good work!
