Language Families of the World

Here is a list of the language families identified by linguistic studies. English is in the Indo-European family and is from the Germanic branch.

All of the people groups mentioned in Genesis 4, 5, 10 and 11 are in the Afro-Asiatic language family. This is the oldest known group of related languages.

Territories where some Afro-Asiatic languages are spoken.

Most languages of northern Africa and the Near East are descended from a common ancestor known as proto-Afro-Asiatic. According to linguists this proto-language was spoken no earlier than about 10,000 years ago. That is about 6000 years before the time of Abraham.

Sumerian, Babylonian and Hittite have similar roots and phonemes. This suggests that these languages developed from a proto-Afro-Asiatic. Hittite has been linked to Sanskrit and suggest a connection between the proto-Afro-Asiatic languages and the proto-Indo-European languages.

These languages were spoken across a vast Afro-Asiatic Dominion that extended from Central Africa to the Indus River Valley  and Turkey around 10,000 years ago. Consider the linguistic correspondence between these words:

The Semitic word "wadi" = river corresponds to the Sanskrit "nadi" = river.

The Semitic root “mgn” = to give, is the same as the Sanskrit “mgn” = to give.

The Semitic “svam” or “Sam-yim” = sky or heaven corresponds to the Sanskrit “svah” = sky or heaven. Both are likely dreived from the Proto-Dravidian word "van" = heaven.

The Sanskrit “Sakti” = harvest moon celebration, is the linguistic equivalent of the Falasha word “Sarki” = harvest moon festival.

The Semitic "yasuah" = salvation, corresponds to the Sanskrit words “asvah”, “asuah” or “yasuah” = salvation.

The Semitic root "thr" = to be pure, corresponds to the Hausa/Hahm "toro" = clean, and to the Tamil "tiru" = holy. All are related to the proto-Dravidian "tor" = blood.

Sarki live in Orissa, India and as ‘Haruwa’ in the Tarai region of Nepal. The word "haruwa" is equivalent to the ancient Egyptian word ‘har-wa”, meaning priest. In Nigeria the sarki are called "Kano Kings."
