The short answer is: Yes, Very Yes. There's a few other things I should probably say, particularly around the actual etymology (and, for … Continue reading The Wealth Of The Lord Of The Dead – A Brief Explication

Two further points shall be made here before we move on to our third comparative example, and thence ultimately to our conclusions and instruction resulting therefrom for the Modern Indo-European Man [technically speaking, this is "man" in a less-gendered than usual sense - 'thinking being', or 'Child of Man(n)u(s)', I mean] .
