    Other section was bothered about word perception like 'you ' and so...

    Thinking how might have number perception happened ......

    (not sure if gathered info is correct ....)


    1 = one (English)
    is it from sanskrit word avum ?
    because avum means exception . like being separate.

    2 = two (English)
    dho (sanskrit)
    zwi (german)

    dho : not sure if it is like saying 'the other'

    but in sanskrit DHWI might mean something like , SECOND or even DOUBLE

    did ZWI originated from DHWI ?

    if case is like, exception = one : other = two ; then what is three and the rest ........
    especially ZERO 's perception?


    Is 'THOU' originated from the word DHO / TWO meaning - the other , not me


    ( ME no engliss , certainly no sanskrit and german )

    It wouldn't be "from" Sanskrit, as they are in different branches of the Indo-European family. However, they might be cognates. "One" is from the proto-Indo-European "oi-no" (one, unique). Old Persian avum is from the same root so the Sanskrit word may be as well.

    2 = two (English)
    dho (sanskrit)
    zwi (german)
    Two is from proto-Indo-European "duwo" (two) which is also the origin for German zwei and Sanskrit dvau.

    Is 'THOU' originated from the word DHO / TWO meaning - the other , not me
    No. It is from the proto-Indo-European "tu", the second person singular pronoun.

    This is a good source for quickly checking the etymology of words: Online Etymology Dictionary
    It is not definitive but it is usually accurate.
