The Arabic-related Sumero-Phoenician influence on English Language

More importantly, the Arabic-related Sumero-Phoenician language has tremendous influence on the pre-Roman Britain and pre-history Europe.  Dr  L. Austine Waddell in a pioneering contribution and original research, documented in his book entitled: “The Phoenician Origin of Britons Scots and Anglo Saxons Discovered by Phoenician and Sumerian Inscriptions in Britain, by Pre-Roman Briton Coins & A Mass of New History(printed by Williams & Norgate, 1924, and 2nd edition, 1925  - Kessinger Publishing Rare Reprints, he revealed a  Plate showing: Phoenician inscriptions on Newton Stone of “Part-olon, king of the Scots” about 400 B.C. calling himself “Briton”, ”Hittite”, and ”Phoenician”.  Dr Waddell then said in the preface, page v:

(That long-lost origin and early history of our ancestors, the Britons, Scots, and Anglo-Saxons, in the “Pre-historic” and Pre-Roman periods, back to about 3000 B.C., are now recovered to a great extent in the present work, by means of newly discovered historical evidence).

Dr L Austine Waddell then wrote another book entitled: “Sumer-Aryan Dictionary – An Etymological Lexicon of the English & Other Aryan Languages Ancient & Modern & The Sumerian Origin of Egyptian & Its Hieroglyphswith plates (printed by Luzac & Co. London, 1927 - Kessinger Publishing Rare Reprints said in the introduction, pages ix-x:

(I was led by the facts to observe that the Sumerians were the Early Aryans…that “the whole family of Aryan languages with their written letters is derived from the Phoenician language and script and its parent the Sumerian, and that about fifty per cent. Of the commonest words in use in the English language to-day is discovered to be Sumerian in origin with the same word-form, sound and meaning.”)


Also Dr L Austine Waddell in his book entitled: “The Aryan Origin of the Alphabet: Disclosing the Sumero-Phoenician Parentage of our Letters, Ancient and Modernwith plates and other illustrations (printed by Luzac & Co. London, 1927 - Kessinger Publishing Rare Reprints said in page 3:

(the “Cadmean Phoenician” is the immediate parent of our modern English and European alphabet.  The name “Cadmean” was applied to it by the early Greeks after its introducer, King Cadmus The Phoenician of Tyre).    

But whether Sumero-Phoenician is Aryan (as Dr Waddell thinks), or Semitic or Hamitic (as others think) is a matter of speculations. Indeed, Dr Waddell himself said on the same last page of quotation. (The earliest-known instances of reversed or “Semitic” (or rather, according to the Hebrew nomenclature, Hamitic). Perhaps, the proximity and the strong relationship of Sumero-Phoenician language to the Arabic language might have deterred the biased Eurocentric westerners not to attribute their language to the Arabic Asian Semite origin (relating to Sam or Sham, the son of Noah).  However, such Europeans should find some consolation in the First Chapter which, revealed that the Arabic language was in fact, the mother language of Adam on Earth, right from the very beginning, and long before the coming of Noah and his sons, i.e. the Arabic was the mother-tongue the first global village.
