Isaac Elchanan Mozeson is only one of a score of dedicated Edenicists, a number that we hope to greatly swell after 2009. But he is the founder of Edenics, and the recording secretary who writes the material, and maintains the data base as received from other researchers around the globe.
Before the project matured in its international scope, in 1989, a first book was published entitled, "The Word: The Dictionary that Reveals the Hebrew roots of English.” That 310 page, oversized book had a 22,000 English words linked to the Edenic language (the just called “Hebrew”). Reprints of The Word are still available, but the new data base at present only on CD) has far more material on the intelligent design of Edenics, much more cognates from both familiar and exotic foreign languages, and a few 100 more English-from-Edenic links.
To stay on top of the exciting discoveries in Edenics, add The Origin of Speeches (2006), The Edenics CD III, or more, to your public or private library.
The Edenic language has already been downloaded into a memory stick between your ears. After reading about Edenics, you may find it easy to research your way into history. Take a language you know, or enjoy, or, even better, an obscure native language from your region, and begin linking words of similar sound and sense as found in The E-Word CD Dictionary.
You might begin with a small list in the Edenic CD (with your name and email #), you might then record your own audio CD and script booklet, it might then grow into a translation of OOS, or your own (your choice here)-from-Edenic dictionary.
Mozeson completed doctoral coursework at New York University, but in a literature program – not linguistics. Linguistics was a dreaded requirement. This young troublemaker was attuned to English poetry and trained in Hebrew. Only an outsider sees that the emperor wears no clothes, and that Western linguists had no clue what Biblical Hebrew was… or the miracle of engineering that language
Isaac Mozeson has written seven previous books, including a dictionary of slang, poetry, and a Jewish history text. Mozeson had been teaching English and Judaica at NYC area colleges.
In 1997, with a life-threatening Heat Stroke in the Galilee (5-day coma, total organ failure), Mozeson's discoveries were nearly buried with him. Disability, including 8 years with a voice that could hardly be understood, gave him the time to work on Edenics, and on an upcoming translation/commentary of Genesis that includes Edenics insights. The theology is post-denominational. From the Beginning will also be published by Lighcatcher Books (as was OOS).
Isaac Mozeson is Chairman of the Hebrew Language Fellowship of the Root & Branch Association, which promotes Mr. Mozeson's research into the Hebrew origins of world languages.
