Homo Sapiens

There was a man, today, in my neighbourhood, who made me aware of the term homo sapiens. Ai made him understand aI saw there was an existence of adjective and noun, so to speak, in the term, and he told me this is the case also in French. The noun comes before the adjective. Ai have not checked this term earlier, so ai did, right away, by the help of my Latin Dictionary, written by Johanssen, Nygaard and Schreiner in 1921, and those “rektorer” knew Gothic letters, which aI don't, though internet does, and that dictionary is read through, that is verified, by doctor S. Panzerhielm Thomas, who, aI think, could not have been a panzerskalle.

Homo it says, means human being, in contrast to gods. Also, the word homo was used to connote “those people”. So, aI understand one by the word understood particularity, and that thing being alike. In my understanding, there must be a relation between “homo” and “humilis”, which means “low; little; simple; unimportant”, and the root must be “humus”, which is “earth; ground”. So, when that Roman emperor got the idea of calling himself Nemo, which is “ne (ho)mo”, that is “not homo”, he was either up to something, or he had completely taken off.

Sapiens is a form of sapio, meaning “taste”, as an adjective, that is, not tasteful, rather capable of tasting. “Sapiens”, so, was “rational; sensible; wise; high-minded”. So, one may ask if those Romans acknowledged apes as incidents of the “homo”. What else, one may ask. The answer is the human being having developed, and turned up, through the times. The not civilized man, in other words.

Ai am uncertain if one really can speak about nouns and adjectives in Roman. The case is that any word in Latin is “verbum”, so that the Romans understood something present working, by the term. When we see the term “homo sapiens” in this light, we get it the Romans saw a way of being by the mass. By the word popularity one may grasp what that was.
