          An ancient language form that originated in the North African area of our most ancient civilizations has been studied by Nyland (2001).  He found that many words used to describe names of places and things in Spanish seem to be closely related to the ancient language, he called Saharan, and which later was predated by the Igbo Language of West Africa.  Fortuitously, the Basque Language is a close relative to the original Saharan.  Following is a discussion of this relationship:

 

          After finding a way to decode and translate the Ogam inscriptions of Ireland and Scotland, Nyland (2001) applied this new knowledge to the vocabulary and names of other European languages. The Spanish language proved to be as straightforward as English in the application of the word-agglutinating Ogam formula (see Ogam), as shown in the well-known word "amigo" (friend): ami-igo, from the Basque verbs amilkatu (to fall down) and igoarazi (to help up). This most appropriate description of a true friend therefore reads: "He helps me up when I fall down." Note how the middle vowel "i" is part of both roots, which is called "vowel-interlocking". This is a characteristic of the word-construction process for all Romance languages and English. It was obvious from this that the Spanish language was an invented language like Latin and English, and was not developed over time from a proto-language. The church linguists who invented the Spanish vocabulary often used Christian teaching in their word-creation, such as in: "Espaņol" which they spelled originally as "Espanjol" and in "zurumbatico" (see below). To better illustrate the word-invention system that Christian church linguists used, here follow some more examples. In Basque, the Spanish "c" is usually a "k" (sometimes an "s"), the "v" is an "f" or a "b", and "sh" is written as "x."

          In comparing the method, with which these words were decoded, with the method Nyland (2001) used for other European languages, there really isn't very much difference. They all are agglutinated in the same manner out of the Basque language with the use of the VCV Formula, of which the vowel interlocking is the main feature. It should not be necessary to decode more Spanish words to prove that this is an invented language, and that it is derived from Basque
