Europa, Europe comes from the Phoenician word EROB, meaning where the sun set (west of Phoenicia,west of Bosphorus, Sea of Marmora). Erebo: I go under. Ereba: The land where I go under. Acu (pronounciatian asu) the land where I (the sun) are coming up: Ereb, ereba= europa Asu = Asie, Asia. Morningland-Eveningland, seen by the Phoeniciers That's why Bosphorus always has been the geographical border between Europe and Asia. Anatolie /= Asia-minor,which forms 97% of todays Turkey, comes from greeche language and means : east, east of what ? East of European Greece!

Anatolia (from Greek Ἀνατολή Anatolē — "east" or "(sun)rise"; also Asia Minor, from Greek: Μικρὰ Ἀσία Mikrá Asía "small Asia"; in modern Turkish: Anadolu) is a geographic and historical term denoting the westernmost protrusion of Asia, comprising the majority of the Republic of Turkey.
Now, this is a fascinating point.
I sincerely try to find an explanation in all this for the words that are used.
The older, the simpler no?
What parts stand for what? Ereba (land? sun? under?), Asu (land? sun? up?).
- Asia comes from As-Sie, meaning looking at the water.
- Afrika comes from Affer-Yck, meaning Far (af, seperated) from d'Yck (Border, coast)
- Lybia comes from Li-by, meaning Being situated (liggen) close (nabij)
Very odd maybe, but goes for an explaination of the words used to de-scribe (om-schrijven).
Just a rare coincidence I found the above.
T and D in beginning of f.e. Latin words could evenso be derived from short articles/place indications (de, het, te, ter, an ...) before the main word used in the Scytisch base language -> mostly referred as an uncertain origin of PIE.
