According to Cheikh Anta Diop, the language most like the Kamau on the African continent is the Wolof; and in his book ‘The African Origins of Civilization’ he conjugates a variety of verbs to prove his point.
The migration of language from the African continent to Europe and Asia has registered a variety of changes, much like our DNA; thus we find African Fs morphing into Egypto-Greco ‘Ps or Phs’, morphing into Latin or Semitic ‘Vs’ or ‘Bs.’ It is with this in mind that I sought to uncover the origins of the Ancient Indo-European founding fathers.
I wish Diop were alive today to see euro-science finally validate his observances and conclusions. When the European would have taken the Dinka, Nuer/Nouer/Nauth and the Massai out of Africa it was Diop who reclaimed them. Science now places them among the oldest humans on the planet. Y Chromosome Haplogroup A: 62% Dinka, 33% Nuer, 27% Massai. Y Chromosome Haplogroup B: 23% Dinka, 50% Nuer. Diop didn’t include the Fulani I imagine because most scholarship had placed them soundly outside of Africa, which presumably was due to the conventional wisdom that Egyptian innovation was of Eastern or East African origins. East Africans had then been relegated to the inter-breeding of the “Great White Race” and the “barely human” African race. An imaginary line had been drawn between those Africans not merely north and south of the Sahara but East and West on the continent, perpetuating the divide and conquer rule.
In a previous discussion Oshun Auset and I reasoned that the Nuer were the most likely source for the Noachian Myth. But surprisingly the Fulani appear to have been the most prolific and the most widely dispersed.
The Wolof call the Fulani, the Pël, pronounced according to linguists Peuhl, the Fulani are also known as Fulbe and Fula, Fulah or Foulah…
Here is how Wiki sees it:
“There are also many names (and spellings of the names) used in other languages to refer to the Fulɓe. Fulani in English is borrowed from the Hausa term, and it is also used by the Manding peoples, being the diminuitive form of the word "Fula" in their language, essentially meaning "little Fula". Fula, from Manding languages is also used in English, and sometimes spelled Fulah or Foulah. Fula and Fulani are commonly used in English, including within Africa. The French borrowed the Wolof term Pël, which is variously spelled: Peul, Peulh, and even Peuhl. More recently the Fulfulde / Pulaar term Fulɓe, which is a plural noun (singular, Pullo) has been adapted to English as Fulbe, which some people use. In Portuguese it's Fula or Futafula.”
Ancient Europeans hold the tradition that they are descended from Bel; the Celts say Bela, Herodotus calls him King Belus; father to Europa, Cadmus and Phoenix: If we retrace the language we see that Fula, Pela, and Bela are one and the same. The Fulani are the same Pelasgi who migrated to the Greek Isles and later on, the mainland. In fact according the Massey’s linguistic rules, which I posted earlier, the ‘Fu (l/r) a’ could also account for the professed antiquity of ‘Ph (r/l) y (g/ng) ia’ and the Falasha or Ethiopian Jews.
"Can this be Dionysus? How the deuce!
Now, by the very Bacchus, in this guise
We do not recognize
The son of Zeus.
How came this goat-reek? Wine is nectar-scented.
The Celt from barley-tops, so We suppose,
For want of grapes and nose,
This brew invented.
Beer is no scion of the God ethereal,
No son of Semele to the lightning born,
But plain John Barley-corn." Flavius Claudius Julianus
