Words under the lens: Greek Numeral names No.38 - Greek words related to number "nine hundred"

38.    Greek words related to number "nine hundred":

The Greek word ENAKOSIOI means "nine hundred" and ENAKOSIOSTOS means "nine hundredth", [Divry's Modern English-Greek, Greek-English Dictionary, 1988, p. 762].

Turkish cardinal numeral for "nine hundred" is 
"DOKUZYÜZ" and for ordinal numeral "nine hundredth" is "DOKUZ YÜZINCI" (DOKUZ YÜZÜNCÜ).

We note that the Greek word ENAKOSIOI is the cut off front end of the word ENAKOSIOSTOS. While the Turkish numeral name 
DOKUZ (TOKUZ), meaning "nine", is not recoverable from Greek word ENAKOSIOI, we find both Turkish numeral names DOKUZ and the YÜZ in the Greek word ENAKOSIOSTOS meaning "nine hundredth".  With this insight, we can decipher the word ENAKOSIOSTOS.

When the Greek ordinal numeral name ENAKOSIOSTOS, meaning "nine hundredth", is rearranged letter-by-letter as 
 "TOKOS-IOS-ENSA", we see the altered, restructured, Hellenized form of the Turkish ordinal numeral name "DOKUZ YÜZÜNCÜ" meaning "nine hundredth".  In this case, there is a direct correspondence between the Greek and the Turkish ordinal numeral names except that this Greek anagram has altered and mixed up the Turkish source text to fabricate the "Greek" ordinal numeral name ENAKOSIOSTOS. This decipherment of the Greek word ENAKOSIOSTOS provides the linguistic evidence that this Greek word has been made up from a Turkish expression DOKUZ YÜZÜNCÜ meaning "nine hundredth".  This finding means that Turkish was a much earlier language than the Greek language was!

Turkish word 
DOKUZ means "nine", YÜZ means "hundred"ÜNCÜ is the infix corresponding to English suffix "th".

As I have demonstrated with the other Greek numeral names and in this case also, the meanings of the words in the Turkish source text have been transferred to the fabricated Greek terms ENA and KOSIOSTOS.
