Just now, I can't recall his name, though it is at the tip of my tongue!

He is a physicist and a linguist. No doubt, a strange combination.

He explains how European languages are influenced by Sanskrit. Just a couple of examples -

Go, gava = cow

Deva = deity

and quite a lot more.

I have visited many townships and cities in Thailand named with the suffix 'buri'. That is really the Thai format of Sanskrit 'Pur' or 'Pura'.

Sanskrit by CD is a complete program for learning Sanskrit. The lessons offer an introduction to the language through the teaching of the alphabet and sanskrit pronunciation, plus more indepth study of simple sandhi (combination of sounds), vocabulary, noun and verb forms.

The very word Sanskrit means refined and complete. Sam (together) krtam (made). Sanskrit is perhaps the oldest living language. All modern languages have etymological roots in sanskrit. Linguistic researches have revealed that all Indo-European languages are rooted in Sanskrit. TheEnglish word 'brother' for instance can be rooted to Sanskit word 'brathara:' and the word mother can be related to the Sanskrit word 'Mathara:' Computer experts find that Sanskrit is the best suited language for programing because words in Sanskrit are instances of pre-defined classes, a concept that drives object oriented programming [OOP] today. For example, in English 'cow' is a just a sound assigned to mean a particular animal. But if you drill down the word 'gau' --Sanskrit for 'cow'-- you will arrive at a broad class 'gam' which means 'to move. From these derive 'gamanam', 'gatih' etc which are variations of 'movement'. All words have this OOP approach, except that defined classes in Sanskrit are so exhaustive that they cover the material and abstract --indeed cosmic-- experiences known to man. So in Sanskrit the connection is more than etymological*
The alphabets in sanskit are called 'Akshara:' which means :'something that cannot die or lose its luster' .(Na Sharathi ithi Akshara. Sanskrit is a refined, pure, rich and an immortal language and one would not be surprised if the technology tomorrow becomes Sanskrit centered....
