Dirir (Ancient Dir word) Found in Ancient Egyptian

Postby Caesar » Wed Jul 09, 2014 5:24 pm

The word Dirir (root word Dir) and it's influence over the Horn and in Arabia and North Africa

But in Ancient Egyptian means "Asiatic warrior" how interesting, (don't know how "asiatic" fits usually European translaters put forth biases that "asiatics" started Egypt but I digress ) but I will look more into it.

All in all, Interesting stuff, this ramadan all about gaining knowledge :D

And in Semitic langues means a courtier! During Somali history, you would need a Dir official for events, was it the same in Arabia in the past?
I will find out more about that.
A courtier (/ˈkɔːrtiə/; French: [kuʁtje]) is a person who is often in attendance at the court of a king or other royal personage
Dirir in Semitic languges = Courtier ( a person who is often in attendance at the court of a king or other royal personage)

Dirir in Egyptian = Warrior



Dir history is all over the horn :stylin:

If Dirir is a loan word from Somali into Egyptian and to Semitic languages it just shows the Dir influence all over North East Africa and Arabia. Mashallah
I wonder what more I will find with this Ancient Egyptian word list site I have found. I will post more findings into this thread.
When the Ancient Egyptians mention your people, why do I need an Englishman with colonial lies telling me who I am?
Like I said Dir history is known throughout the horn and beyond :stylin:
