Words under the lens: "GOVERNMENTAL" and "ADMINISTRATION"


Words under the lens:   "GOVERNMENTAL"  and  "ADMINISTRATION"

Recently, a friend asked to know the makeup of the word "government".  This word gives the impression that its  root is the word "govern" - but this is not so as we will see below. 


From the Oxford American Dictionaries, we have the following definition for the term "government":

government, noun,  the governing body of a nation, state, or community ;
• the system by which a nation, state, or community is governed ;
• the action or manner of controlling or regulating a nation, organization, or people;
• the group of persons in office at a particular time; administration.

DERIVATIVES: governmental, governmentally 

The English word GOVERNMENTAL, rearranged letter-by-letter as "GNONL-ETAREVM"  or "GANONLE-ETRUM", is the anagrammatized and restructured form of the Turkish expression 
"KANUNLA IDAREYIM" meaning "I am administration with laws", "I am management with laws (with rules)".  This Turkish definition is exactly the same as the meaning attributed to the English word "government" as given above using Oxford American Dictionaries. 

Additionally, the word GOVERNMENTAL, rearranged as 
"GANVNL-TOREEM", is the anagrammatized and restructured form of the Turkish expression "KANUNLU TÖREYIM" meaning "I am tradition with  laws" or "I am tradition of laws". 

Turkish word 
KANUN means "law, rule",  KANUNLA means "with law, with rule" IDARE means "management, administering, governing, ruling"TÖRE means "tradition; law, rule". 

The word GOVERNMENT is just the front end of the word GOVERNMENTAL without the "-
AL" suffix. 

The word GOVERN is yet another cut off front end of the word GOVERNMENTAL - therefore even this word GOVERN is not the root word of GOVERNMENT.  The actual root word is GOVERNMENTAL and the other forms are simply cut-off derivatives of GOVERNMENTAL . 

A similar word to "government" is the word "administration" which is defined as below:


administer: "manage and be responsible for the running of (a business, organization, etc.);  be responsible for the implementation or use of (law or resources)". 

administration: "the process or activity of running a business, organization, etc. ;
the people responsible for this, regarded collectively; the management of public affairs; government".

ORIGIN Middle English : from Latin administratio(n-), from the verb administrare (see administer ).

The English word ADMINISTRATION, rearranged letter-by-letter as "ISMIN-IDARA-TNTO" or "SMN-IDARA-ITINTO" is the anagrammatized and restructured form of the Turkish expression 
"ISMIN IDARE EDENDI" meaning "your name is: he/she who rules, he/she who governs, he/she who administers, he/she who manages".  Clearly, this Turkish definition is the same as the definition of the English word ADMINISTRATION. The additional Turkish word "ISMIN" has been used as a linguistic "wrapper" in order to extend the size of the source Turkish expression "IDARE EDEN" so that it may be further confused to the degree of unrecognizable as Turkish. Thus, this decipherment shows that the word ADMINISTRATION  has also been fabricated from Turkish.

Turkish expression 
IDARE EDEN means "he/she who rules, he/she who governs, he/she who administers, he/she who manages"

In both cases, that is, GOVERNMENT and  ADMINISTRATION, law, rule and fair administration are required as the fundamental principles of the concept of government.  Without laws and rules, chaos would rule any system.

Similarly, the Latin word "administratio(n)" is also the same as the English word "administration" 

Thus, the much earlier Latin word "administratio(n)" has also been manufactured from Turkish some 3000 years ago.  

Best wishes to all,
