  • TITLE: Words for the Animal Elephant/Mammoth in Relation to the DNA Genealogy Data

    AUTHORS: Petr Jandáček, Anton Perdih

    KEYWORDS: Words for the Animal Elephant, Areas of Words, Y Chromosome Haplogroups, DNA Genealogy

    JOURNAL NAME: Advances in Anthropology, Vol.7 No.4, October 16, 2017

    ABSTRACT: The onomatopoetic Mongol word for the animal elephant, zaan, reflects the primordial Eurasian word for the trumpeting animal mammoth. Subsequently it had diversified into the many variants such as slen, sian, sion, san, chan, slon, silonit, glan, zilonis, zihon, zo, masan, tsonoqua and many other local forms. The endings and are characteristic for Europe, whereas is characteristic for East Asia. Exceptions to this continuum are the Cambodian (Khmer) word damri and the Lithuanian (Baltic) word dramblys. DNA Genealogy and geophysical data indicate that about 68,000 years ago the people having the Y Chromosome haplogroups A00, A0, A1a, A1b1, and B survived on the East African highlands and spread later across Africa, whereas in the area of Alps and Balkans in Europe there survived the people having the Y Chromosome haplogroups BT and CT, whose descendants subsequenly split into the Y Chromosome haplogroups C through T, which in time spread all over the world. This may be the source of the observed similarities.
