Turkish Words in Akkadian and Similarity Between Turkish & Akkadian Based on Rules of Inflective & Agglutinative Languages

Author: Elshad Alili, 14.10.2016
 

Akkadian, although a dead language, has left deep imprints on Semitic and some Indo-European languages, and has played an important role in the history of mankind. It is accepted as the ancestor of all the Semitic languages. Beginning 
from the era of Sargon I, it became the official language in a vast area from Anatolia to Egypt and to India. Akkadian was  the  “Lingua  Franca”  of  the  ancient  world,  and  has  passed  on  many  words  to  other  languages  such  as  Persian, 
Sanskrit and Greek. Although, Assyriologists at present ignore it, the language spoken in the very early days of Akkad, in  BCE  XXVIII-XXIV,  may  have  been  an  agglutinative  language  like  today’s  Turkish  or  Magyar,  rather  than  an 
inflective language like today’s Arabic and all Syriac languages. Thus it may show parallelism with Turkish.
