similarities in Chinhese and greek languageThe word hygea health, must be related to the Chinese word yu which means to heal, to recover, to become well (as an adverb it means the more the more since one recovers gradually and little by little). Today, the word--Albania--is referred to as "Alebaniya" in Chinese. This word is believed to be derived from the Latin word: "Aibainiya". (The "l" in Albania came about later in Greek and in Latin as these languages evolved). Poignantly, in modern Chinese, "bai" means "snow white". In the ancient Chinese language, "ai" means "snow white" without the "b"--not in reference to the young maiden and her seven dwarfs however! Rather, "snow white" refers to the dramatic descriptions of the snow white mountains of Albania which bring to mind the many horrid tragedies the Greek soldiers faced during World War II upon such mountains.
The Chinese word, "bai", which means "snow white" offers another fascinating meaning which might sound rather farfetched. Nevertheless, the Chinese word for white wine (which is produced with sugar cane and maize, as is Greek ouzo) is "bai jiu". Many wines are referred to, in Chinese, as "san- bai" which means exactly: "white three-fold". Notably, these particular wines produce such heavy foam, one might venture to assert that the type of wine known for its heavy foam is champagne. "White three-fold" or "white three times" can also be linked to a particular French province; to explain, this province has such extensive vineyards for wine production, the province was named Champagne. The world-famous "foam" wine, so to speak, is Champagne or "san bai"--white three-fold!
The Chinese word, "lun" means wheel. Similarly, in Latin, the word "luna" refers to the moon--an object similar in shape to the wheel. The word "luna" also means "talk". Interestingly, there is a Greek expression that goes as follows: trehei I glossa tis rodani. This means: "she speaks too much and too quickly, like a spinning wheel". However, this "wheel" refers to the loom where yarn is spun. Undoubtedly, this connection has considerable loopholes.
The Chinese word, "gu" means a small amount. This word also refers to the thigh bone with its prior meaning being a "branch" or "part". The Chinese word "liao" means water. Thus, the term "guliao" means "a little water". Interestingly, one might be able to link this term with the following Greek expression: "mia goulia nero" which means exactly, "a sip of water". The similarity between the Chinese "guliao" and the Greek "goulia" is evident. In the word, guliao, the "gu" precedes the "liao". In the Greek word, goulia, the "gu" which denotes a small amount (in Greek--(o)ligos) comes after the "li".
