language. Most was accessed thru the
Necronomicon, translated by a monk. Many
persons have ( Crowley was one ) investi-
gated the language and culture of the Sum-
erian people. The language is similiar to
Ancient Sanskrit and Chinese, yet, in many
ways totally different. I have a book,
"Fundamentals of Sumarian Grammar/
Grundzuge der Sumerischen Grammatik",
by Arno Poebel. Any thots anyone on the
possible origins of this strange pre-Semetic
(and I will not even start commenting on the Necronomicon mentioned by OP).
I've never studied Sino-Tibetan languages, but I can't imagine any similarities between Sumerian and any fact about modern Chinese that I know. What exactly do you find similar?
Likewise, I'm no Sanskrit expert, but I don't see a lot of non-superficial overlap between the two. What leads you to suggest a relationship?
We should not be too anxious to declare anything as absolute in this field. Tomorrow's finding of a clay shard somewhere between Syria and India or analysis of a completed puzzle of pieces in the British Museum may send us in a far different direction.
We haven't even been able to analyze, as of yet, all of the stacks and stacks of Middle English documents on hand.
A note of caution also on speaking of "The Sumerian Language". This language was around for so long and was influenced so much at different times by different sister languages that we may simply be not be able to use any one snapshot in some one moment as "The Sumerian Language".
A thousand years from now someone could find an example of Runic antler writing and declare it to be "The English Language"
I have seen speculation that there are some now saying that there may be a strong early influence of hieroglyphics on Mesopotamian writing.
