Thanks Kevin for the information on the Latin root "ine".
My question is what sources did you use to determine that it meant
"belonging to [LAND of]"?
I have in my possession a copy of The American heritage Dictionary of
(Revised by Calvert Watkins), and could not come with the following or any
meaning for that matter.
Please advise me on what I'm doing wrong.
Secondly; If we are all in agreement with the above (if not I sure we will
be hearing about it),
can we deduce the following:
Philist[ine] = "belonging to [LAND of]"
Palest[ine] = "belonging to [LAND of]"
Thirdly; is there any link between these words?
