    Hi friends

    Arabic is the Mother of all Languages not Hebrew? This is my understanding; my own mother language is Punjabi, however.

    Thanks

      I was under the impression that most modern languages derive from Latin.

      Anyway, it just seems like another way for people to say, "I'm better than you are," which is honestly quite sad.

        Hi friend Pani Midnyte Odin

        There is nothing wrong with your thinking; it was a positive thinking not the skeptic one.

        How did you have the impression about Latin; a great language though? Please elaborate.

          The reason I was under the impression that modern languages derived from Latin is because when I look word/name origins up in the dictionary, they usually say that the word derived from Latin originally.

          The word love, for example, derived from the Old English word lufu, which derived from the Old Frisian word luve, which derived from the Old High German word luba, which derived from the Gothic word lubo, which derived from the Scandinavian word lof. The Indo-European root stems from the Latin word lubet (it is pleasing) and the Latin word lubido (desire).

          Etymology dictionaries have similar explanations for most words.

          That is my reasoning for believing most modern languages stemmed from Latin. However, I never claim to be 100% correct in anything.

            You've got it backwards. Indo-European far predates Latin.

            Latinate languages that still exist are basically your Romance languages and Romanian (which isn't always so listed). English and German, for example, derive from the Old Germanic language group and do not stem from Latin (although a great deal of Latin influence came into English via French - the Norman Conquest and all that)

      Sorry, it was Aramaic and Hebrew is a part of that language.
      Arabic came from Aramaic.

      Aramaic was the common language spoken in Israel.
      It's the language of the Talmud.

      Proto-Semitic is the mother of both Arabic and Hebrew. As for the mother of all languages, it has not been discovered yet. Nor are all linguists agreed that all languages have a common source.

            No, it is not a serious question at all. You don't need to be a linguist, you just need to think for two seconds and use some common sense to see that it is nonsense.

      Hey Paar what about Basque. This is a really wierd language and nobody appears to know where it came from. Not Arabic that's for sure.

      A Quote from Wikipedia:
      Basque is classified as a language isolate. It is the last remaining pre-Indo-European language in Western Europe. Consequently, its prehistory may not be reconstructible by means of the comparative method except by applying it to differences between dialects within the language. Little is known of its origins but it is likely that an early form of the Basque language was present in Western Europe before the arrival of the Indo-European languages to the area.

    Why would you think that either are? No doubt because they are both associated with religions and you are a religious nutter.

    I think linguists talk about a lost language called something like Proto-indo-somethingorother as the most likely candidate for 'mother of all languages', if there even is one. In any case it's definitely not either Arabic or Hebrew as there are other known languages which date back much further.

        Although I don't study it, there is also a Proto language that is reconstructed for the Semitic languages called... Proto-Semitic.  It is the ancestor of Hebrew, Arabic, Akkadian, Babylonian, Syriac, Aramaic, Assyrian and arguably Egyption (that is ancient, Pharonic Egyptian).  Some languages of north eastern Africa are included also, such as Amharic and Ethiopian.  Some speakers of some of these languages reject this sort of linguistic scientific analysis for religious reasons.

        Do you really want the truth? Let's find out.

        The whole earth was of one language at one time. You have to remember that God is no respector of people. He does not give to one above the other.

        When God confused the language of men, why would He give the original language to one certain people? If He did that, He then respected someone above others. But as stated above, it is not in His nature to do such a thing. God would keep the original language and not give it to anyone.

      Hi friend Twenty One Days

      Sorry I could not get fully what you said. Is it Aramaic or Hebrew which of the two you consider is the Mother? Why it cannot be Arabic? Why it cannot be Sanskrit? Please give your reason and arguments and links if any.

      What is your opinion about the following?

      Classical Sanskrit is the standard register as laid out in the grammar of Pāṇini, around the 4th century BCE. Its position in the cultures of South and Southeast Asia is akin to that of Latin and Greek in Europe and it has significantly influenced most modern languages of the Indian subcontinent, particularly in India and Nepal.[4]

      The pre-Classical form of Sanskrit is known as Vedic Sanskrit, with the language of the Rigveda being the oldest and most archaic stage preserved, its oldest core dating back to as early as 1500 BCE.[5] This qualifies Rigvedic Sanskrit as one of the oldest attestations of any Indo-Iranian language, and one of the earliest attested members of the Indo-European language family, the family which includes English and most European languages.[6]

        one of the oldest, not the oldest.

        Remember, Abram spoke Aramaic. The title Hebrew is an adjective from Aramaic meaning 'those people who crossed over the river', not an actual language, until much later. The spoken language of Ninevah was a cross between what some call Sanskrit and Aramaic.

        After the Flood and then Babel incidents, languages took shape as individual cultural identities resulting in myth, ritual practice, education, social order, numerals, economics, etc etc.

        Even still, pictorial language is much older.

        well, vedic aryans are related to the early semites. Brahmins are Abrahamins, the sons of Abraham. The Aryans...or Ayrans may have been Semetic as well, Hebrews or Ibrit or abrit. The cow worship that emerged from the Vedic Aryans is related to the Jewish OX head, yes? It is the Alef, the Alpha. Hence the controversial golden calf.

        The Islamic people are said to have been descended from Esau, is it not so? that is the belief, it may have some historical basis. It may be that the answer is both and neither. Because the original tongue may have been something earlier than Arabic and Hebrew. So to say that Arabic is ahead and Hebrew is ahead is like arguing about which twin came out of the womb first.

        Is that cool Mr. Ahmadi, the peaceful Muslim who wants to be assert his historical superiority over the peaceful Jew. You are brothers in tongue, history and most likely DNA.

    It would be unwise to call some language as the mother of all other language. In ancient time people used to live in scattered way in small tribes. They didn’t have the communication tools for inter-tribe or inter-region communication.
    Also there might be a lot of tribes who failed to survive along with their languages! Many languages have been developed simultaneously and independently, some of those are still surviving and some are not.
    The similarity among different languages which might gave birth of this ‘mother language’ theory might be due to the influences of inter-region communication and adaptability features persist in  different languages.

        Hi friend Deborah Sexton

        I agree with you to the extent that the Arabs were nomads and in ancient times they had to shift from one place to another place due to terrain and desert; they thought it not to be noble to learn writing. So Arabic might not have been first to write. And also because a word on sand is just like a word on the water; and Arabia was all sand.

          In everything I have studied, the Aramaic language was used by the Hebrews. Even the scriptures were written in Aramaic/Hebrew and it was the Hebrews daily language. Then Arabic was derived from Aramaic. Spoken by the Hebrews and written by the Hebrews. The Aramaic alphabet was then adopted by the Arabs.

          Some people think that Arabic and Aramaic has always been the same.

            Hi friend Deborah Sexton

            That is why Arabic,Aramaic and Hebrew are called sister of one another; I understand.

            Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) was born in a remote village Qadian,Gurdaspur, India. He did not have any formal schooling; he never studied in any college or University and he never travelled much; though he read some preliminary books from private tutors. His language was Punjabi and Urdu. The Creator-God Allah YHWH taught him 40,000 roots of Arabic words in one night; you can understand what roots mean; one root has many a word in Arabic.He wrote many books in Arabic.

            One of his marvellous books is "Minan-ur-Rahman"Arabic - the mother of all languages , which I mentioned in one of my posts here, the original book is in Arabic , and its translation is also available:

            http://www.alislam.org/topics/arabic/

            In this book he had given the principles under which it is possible to trace other languages to Arabic. One of his followers Muhammad Ahmad Mazhar who, I understand was awarded a PHD degree late, has written articles and books and traced about 22 languages to Arabic; some have been made available online like:
            •Minan-ur-Rahman [8MB pdf] - Arabic - the mother of all languages - by The Promised Messiah a.s.
            •The Source of All Languages [22MB pdf] - by Muhammad Ahmad Mazhar
            French, German, Spanish, Latin, Greek, Russian, Persian, Aryan, Hindi, Chinese traced to Arabic

      Hi friend pisean282311

      We are discussing Evolution if you are a man of Science;how man evolved to his speaking faculties; without a language man would have just been another animal? So it is an important phase in man's evolving life.

      If you are not a man of Science and you are a man believing in Word; so the word is very important as the Christians make Word a god; and words tell us human history like an archaelogical site would tell us.

      Words also tell us about the moral and spiritual progress or degradation of a society.

      Please look into and English dictionary, which is not my mother tongue; see the word "nut" and all its derivatives and the meaning of the words with the prepositions. You would see a new world being revealed unto you; how humans moved about and what they used to do and what they do now.

      Word and language is very important; you would agree.

      I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

      Hi friend SirDent

      Yes I know Usman and Ali from the history:

      Usman ibn ‘Affān or ‘Uthmān ibn ‘Affān  (c. 579 - July 17, 656) was one of the sahaba (companions of Islamic prophet Muhammad). An early convert to Islam, he played a major role in early Islamic history, most notably as the third Caliph of the Rashidun Empire, prophet's son-in-law and the compilation of the Qur'an.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uthman_ibn_Affan

      Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (Arabic: Transliteration: ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib, [ʕaliː ibn ʔæbiː t̪ˤɑːlib]; 13th Rajab, 24 BH–21st Ramaḍān, 40 AH; approximately October 23, 598 or 600[2] or March 17, 599 – January 27, 661[4]) was the cousin and son-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and ruled over the Islamic Caliphate from 656 to 661. Sunni Muslims consider Ali the fourth and final of the Rashidun (rightly guided Caliphs), while Shi'a Muslims regard Ali as the first Imam and consider him and his descendants the rightful successors to Muhammad, all of which are members of the Ahl al-Bayt, the household of Muhammad. This disagreement split the Muslim community into the Sunni and Shi'a branches.[1]
      Most records do indicate that during Muhammad's time, Ali was the only person born in the Kaaba sanctuary in Mecca, the holiest place in Islam.[5] Although, from the point of view of Sunni Muslims, this on its own does not give him special religious significance. His father was Abu Talib ibn Abd al-Muttalib and his mother was Fatima bint Asad[1] but he was raised in the household of Muhammad, who himself was raised by Abu Talib, Muhammad's uncle. When Muhammad reported receiving a divine revelation, Ali was among the first to accept his message, dedicating his life to the cause of Islam.[
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali

      As for the combined name Usmanali; I don't know anybody. It is not my name and it has never been.

      I have since replied your post; just before this one.

      Thanks

      See.. you wondered why I ignored you in one of your posts to me.
      The reason I did, is because you are always writing me short notes stating: "Deborah, you're strange"
      "Deborah, you're a weirdo" etc, etc.
      Now you actually say this to another Hubber. (Who is a Human Being I might add)

      The belief system of Muslim is found in many countries not just those which are terrorists. There are many peaceful Muslims.
      I work with one from India. Stereotyping people is unfair.

      After observing the forums on another website, I decided to write for that site and this is what I have been doing.
      This is the first forum where people show so much hate.

      On the other site, you don't have to sign up for anything, they share their revenue with their writers. This way, the writers do not have get approved for Adsense.

      As soon as I am established there, I will be leaving Hubpages.

          I will email you and let you know where I have gone.
          I really like the other place.


          I've been on these forums for five months now and have had many situations going on. But this last one was unforgivable.

          Only one person spoke out for me. The other ones, although they knew what was happening..they didn't tell the other person/people to stop with their attacks, It was me they commented to and the comments weren't nice.  I didn't need them to support me but I also didn't need their comments. One person told me, they didn't know what was going on and didn't want to know. But then told me how wrong I was.

          I knew at that time that I wanted to leave.

          I am happy with my decision.

          I am letting about 4-5 people know where I will be.

    Arabic is not the first language as far as what I have studied.
    the first language could be Archaic Sumerian (starting about 3100 B.C.) they have found inscriptions which are housed in various museums, one famous one being the Louvre.

    Sumerian was spoken by those living in Sumeria (Epic of Gilgamesh) which Sumer is thought to be in present day Iraq.

    I used to study this stuff many years ago. I think it's fascinating topic.

      We are not talking of the sopken lanugage which is a later stage; we are talking of the spoken language.

    Just another Muslim trying to claim the greatness of something else supposedly Arabic or Islamic in origin. Man they are funny.

    If Arabs claim lineage from Ishma'el and he was born from Abraham, a Jew, then how do you get Arabic language came first?

    And they do indeed claim lineage from Ishma'el, a claim proven false by genetic testing of arabs and others thorugh-out the world.

    I would call whatever caveman talked with as the first and primary language in it's most primitive form. Personally, I would call it "jibberish", but would think that would be the oldest form of talk in existence.

    Then again, not sure it even qualified as a language, but it was a form of communication. wink

    The oldest language is too complicated for even the most adept of translators, but it contains major sentences/sounds like

    kitchy kitchy coo

    Oh please stop cwying now; Mummy will change that nasty ol' diaper

    Each parent just automatically starts speaking that language and teachin' it to their kids soon after they're born.

    What language did the ancient Sumerian people write and read in? Since they are the oldest known civilization, according to Modern day archaeologists, wouldn't their language be the oldest?  However, since the recent discovery of ancient underwater ruins, in which they have dated the one off the coast of Japan to be over 100,000 years old, might be in the running for this accreditation by you.  There is on one side of this ancient ruin, a block wall that bears some writing.  Two letters to be exact.  What it says nobody knows, but its writing of some sort and it is there. Wouldn't that be the oldest known language?  So technically neither Arabic, nor Hebrew are the oldest by several thousand years.

    History, learn it.  It is a beautiful thing.wink

    Sumerian people spoke and wrote Sumerian. They wrote in cuneiform, but so did Akkadians, Babylonians, etc. This is a little like English speakers using the same alphabet as speakers of Italian. Sumerian was not related to any of the other languages around at that time.

    Ancient Egyptian is another "oldest language".It is supposed to be in the Afro-Asiatic family. (English is Indo-European)

    I'm not sure where Harappan and Linear A fit in. Both are ancient and undecipherable at this point.

    Aramaic is a precursor to both Hebrew and Arabic, I am not sure what it derives from.
