There are countless books, articles and sites about John Dee and the material he received from the Angels. I admit that I haven’t read all of these. So it’s quite possible that this idea of mine already has been put forth by others.
Of all the fascinating and puzzling things about Enochian one I find very remarkable. Namely the fact that the letters of the alphabet have names that don’t make any (phonetical) sense.
For some reason I got the idea that these names might be words in either Enochian itself or another language. So that one word could in actuality be a coded sentence.
If there is something to this idea then it would make the Enochian dictionary a whole lot shorter but at the same time be a tool to expand on the language.
Here is a first attempt:
|C/K||VEH||BE||Deduct / Remove / Receive (as an allotment)|
|G/J||GED||KID||Cut / Demolish / Break|
|D||GAL||KAL||Rare / Valuable|
|E||GRAPH||GAR||Place / To put|
|H||NA||NA||Man / Stone|
|L||UR||UR||He / One / Man|
|P||MALS||MALA||As much as|
|Q||GER||GIR||Gift / Rage|
|N||DRUX||DUR||Bond / Totality|
|US||Follow / Side|
|U/V||VAN||BAN||Unit of capacity|
|BOLP||Be thou||Branch + Self + One + As much as|
|CHISO||Are / Shall be||Receive + Man + Gate +Spreading +Self|
|CHRISTEOS||Let there be||Receive + Man + Pure + Gate + Fence + To put + Self + Spreading|
|NOA(L)N||Become||Bond – Follow + Self + Rise + (One) + Totality – Side|
|OIAS||Was, is and shall be||Self + Gate + Rise + Spreading|
|TRIAN||Shall be||Fence + Pure + Gate + Rise + Bond – Side|
|APILA||Liveth||Rise + As much as + Gate + One + Rise|
|HOM||Live(s)||Man + Self + Expand|
|IOIAD||Him that lives forever||Gate + Self + Gate + Rise + Rare|
|SALBROX||Live sulphur||Spreading + Rise + One + Branch + Pure + Self + Garment|
|EOL||Make / I made||To put – Window + Self + Man|
|EOLIS||Make / Making||To put – Window + Self + Man + Gate + Spreading|
|OL||I made||Self + Man|
|OLN||Made||Self + Man + Totality – Side|
|ON||Made / Built||Self + Totality – Side|
|OZAZM||Make me||Self + Gather together + Rise + Gather together + Expand|
|OZAZMA||Make us||Self + Gather together + Rise + Gather together + Expand + Rise|
|QAA||Creation||Gift + Rise + Rise|
|QAADAH||Creator||Gift – Rise + Rise + Rare + Rise + Man|
|QAAL||Creator||Gift + Rise + Rise + He|
2 thoughts on “A thought on the Enochian Alphabet”
I’ve currently been looking into tracing languages and their usage so this is quite a fascinating read. Most recently, I’ve been delving into shorthand, as well as learning cyrillic. Comparing the Cyrillic alphabet with that of the one I’m used to has been both challenging and rewarding. Quite more fascinating is the choice of lines and glyphs chosen to represent sound. Shorthand, for example, is based on phonetics, it’s the act of capturing a sound and associating it with the language it was written to compress information. To the untrained eye, shorthand can look like sanskrit. But then isn’t all language a compression of data for ease of communication? Which is why this Enochian comparison is quite fascinating. Thank you for the interesting read!
