Just a little phrase in English: " He is a man, he is !"



This little phrase we will now represent in a combination of three different languages .


The first and fourth word, "he", we will translate into Latin, the central word "man" into Hebrew, the other two will remain in English.


So what do we see ?



I S I S I S H , I S I S !
He is a Man , he is !



This second little phrase of a few words shows us how near to each other are the three languages we have used here.


One and the same root , "Y S", the same origin in three groups of languages, gives :



IS English the verbal form (of "to be"), used for a man
IS Latin the pronoun ( he ), used for a man
ISH Hebrew the noun ( a man ), used for a man



This is one more example of the kinship between European and Semitic languages. In the realm of pronouns the next figure shows more of this.
