The forms *dyeu- and *deiw-os are both derivatives of a root dyeu-, meaning “to shine”.
The notion of deity was therefore linked to the notion of the bright sky.
This derivation and the link do not respect the dual structure of the root dyeu-, which essentially has been constructed from at least four elements: the consonant “d” and the three vowels “i”, “e” and“u”, which all relate to their individual symbolism. In the first place the root dyeu- refers to thesymbols “d”, “i”, “e” and “u”, in which “I” and “U” have been identified as the male, respectivelyfemale elements.
In Latin the word for “day” is “dis”.
This definition is incomplete. In the first place the Latin word “Dis” describes God, which in aderivative way leads to “day”.
For the Indo-Europeans the society of the gods was conceived in the image of their own society as patriarchal.
The reconstructed words *deiw-os and *dyeu-pter- refer to two subsequent phases in etymologicaldevelopment. In the first phase the deity (without the -pter-suffix) has been considered as a dualconcept, representing a balanced androgynous being, consisting of an equal amount of male andfemale halves. In later eras the -pter-suffix has been added, which was needed to transform thesociety into a patriarchal structure.
Deutsch and Teut
Quotation from page 4:There are also dialectal words that are limited in the area of their extension, as in thecase of an important sociological term such as the word for “people,” teut-, which isconfined to the western branches: Italic, Celtic, and Germanic. (It is the base of German Deutsch and of DUTCH and TEUTONIC.)
The word for “people,” teut- is the base of German Deutsch and of DUTCH and TEUTONIC.
This derivation does not respect the UI-roots in
which may beclearly visible in the Dutch word for
, which is written
The ancient legends(documented by Tacitus and Aventinus) refer
to the creator god
, who has beenidentified by
as a bipolar deity.For these reasons the words Deutsch, DUTCH and TEUTONIC probably refer to the divine PIE-name (e.g. *dyeu-).
