Nypesuppe: Book review: The Viking And The Red Man

Nypesuppe: Book review: The Viking And The Red Man: Don't judge a book by its cover, they say. Still, sometimes you come across a book and somehow sense there's something about it. ...

This is a pretty good review of Sherwin.  Except the reviewer cannot believe that the Algonquin (Lenape) Language can be Old Norse.  So the review becomes useless after the words "because it's absolutely, completely impossible."  You, the reader, are seeing the results of the reviewer's paradigm imposed upon Sherwin data.

Because of Sherwin we know, today, that the language is called Lenape.  "Algonquin" was the French--incorrect-- name for the language.  So wherever the books say "Algonquin" use "Lenape." Search for and click on LENAPE LAND.

I, and one other man, Craig Judge have used Sherwin to decipher the oldest American history (LENAPE LAND).

Lenape and Old Norse are sibling languages.  

The development of an American language being a sibling language to an Indo-European language is not impossible, but it may have required an impact with the debts front of a Super Nova.  Search for and click on LENAPE EPIC TOPICS, the click on THE BIG EVENT.

About 13,000 years ago the impactors of the big event destroyed most of eastern North America.  There are scraps of evidence that sea peoples technology was actually more advanced than the classical Roman and Greek navies.  After the Big Event, boats similar to the Viking longship brought survival technology and language from the Baltic area of Europe into a devastated eastern North America.

When the two cultures merged in a recovering America, the Americans gave up their language to benefit from the improved culture of the Maritime Archaic peoples. The men of the improved culture kept their language, but gave up most of that old culture to adapt to living in America.

Boaz describes a similar development along the north coast of Africa, where the Arab language and the improved technology of the expanding Arabs, caused the north African people to adopt the language (Arabic) and assimilate the trading technology, but the incoming Arabs gave up their culture as they settled into African culture.  The net result, today,  is North African people speaking Arabic.

In the same fashion, North American people were speaking Old Norse about 7,000 years ago, when evidence of the Maritime Archaic have been dug up from St.  Paul, MN to the Baltic sea.

[To clarify understanding of the situation, remember that Old Norse is NOT Norwegian.  Old Norse is one of the more difficult FOREIGN languages Norwegian students must study.  The scholars of Iceland preserved Old Norse best.  

Old Norse and Lenape are sibling Languages.  They separated about 1350 during the Little Ice Age, when the Greenlanders migrated to America and depended on Drottkvaett format self verifying oral communication.   From Greenland east the language development continued to depend on paper.]

The conclusion of this review is flawed by the author's assumption that Old Norse (a foreign language) should look and sound like modern Norwegian

Sherwin collected sets of Lenape words with the same meaning.  They have a variety of spellings and pronunciations   The Lenape words were collected by French, English, Swedish, and German translators.  Each translator used their own spelling.  Then Sherwin  shows that most of the "words" in the Lenape set are not words but rather phases of basic Old Norse words.

The best test of Sherwin is the ability to decipher the Maalan Aarum, which is a collection of Drottkvaett stanzas based on Lenape sounds.  The Drottkvaett score is highest when the deciphering, using Sherwin's data, reaches the basic Old Norse Syllables.  See GEESE and WHALES decipherment.

Also, search for and click on LENAPE LAND.  > TOPICS> TESTAMENT.
