Hungarian and Eskimo-Aleut

ALFRÉD TÓTH : HUNGARIAN AND ESKIMO-ALEUT — with Paleo-Siberian Cognates

Proto-Uralo-Siberian *saγ∂- “to come, to go”

Eskimo-Aleut aγ∂- “to go over”, aγγiR- “to come”

Aleut aγ- “to go by, to pass”

Sumerian saĝgul (28x: ED IIIb, Ur III) wr. sag-kul; saĝ-gul “globe-lightning”.

According to EWU (pp. 180s.), -uld is a suffix, but the Sum. form

clearly shows that only –d- is a suffix, wile –ul belongs to the second

syllable. The semantic connection between “to run” and “lightning” is

given by the Hung. saying: “Megy, mint a villámlás = száguld, vágtat”

(O. Nagy Gábor, Magyar szólások és közmondások. 8th ed. Budapest

1999, p. 725, no. 495) that originates in Sum., as the following example

proves: “The sixth beats at the flanks of the mountains like a battering

flood. The seventh flashes like lightning, and no one can deflect its

power” (Gilgameš and Huwawa [Version B]: c.1.8.1.5.1). This

etymology is an incontestable proof for the genetical relationship

between Hungarian und Sumerian.
