We show that anyone who can read can see that all the languages of the world are connected in a single “global web” and one of the clearest illustrations is the fact that chains of similar names extend “From Africa to Easter Island”.In fact these names must be the remnants of an ancient “One World Tongue”.We can state this because of the plain fact that, no matter what language you speak, you use names for parts of the human body that are matched by similar or identical names in other languages that are remote from your own in every sense – geographical, historical, cultural, or racial.We are able to show this because we have collected and studied names from over 750 languages spread across the whole world. This study is unique with no parallel in linguistics.The fact that there are English names similar to other Indo European languages such as Spanish or Latvian will cause no surprise. However here we show that the matches extend to all other groups and regions such as African, Indonesian, Papua, Australia, the many islands of the Pacific Ocean, Japan and Korea, and, most clearly to the many Native American tongues. In fact here we give a groundbreaking analysis of over 750 languages across the world and have shown that they are all linked together. There are not just a few but thousands of examples of these linked names, sometimes preserved in vulgar, sometimes obscene, and “nursery forms” used by children.The fundamental fact of worldwide identities can only be understood if we accept that the names are remnants of an ancient single worldwide tongue, indeed perhaps the “First World Language”. Almost equally striking is our discovery that links with the Americas are abundant throughout the World. The Americas are not in any way remote from the rest of the world and, as others of our studies will show are the principal members of the first migration out of Africa.The lead document our One World Tongue series in which we give the basic evidence for worldwide links is entitled Part 1- A Global Web of Names. There we discuss our selection of data and its analysis and present examples of names for every one of the hundred parts of the human body and its secretions that we derive.The present Kindle document extends the One World Tongue series is entitled Part 2- Africa to Easter Island. Here we show that there are “chains” of names that run from a probable origin in Africa through all intermediate regions and languages to the most remote Pacific Ocean island of Rapanui (once called Easter Island). We also show that there are similar links with the languages of “Pacific Eurasia” such as Ainu, Korea, and Japan to all of the thirteen groups of Native American languages but that the “chains” are less clear.No other study of language has the breadth that can reveal the striking discoveries presented in our analyses but the reality is undeniable and open to anyone with the patience to follow our path. The field that we present is so wide that this work is “open-ended” and will surely lead to further discoveries. In fact there are surely profound implications to be discovered in many areas including linguistics and anthropology.
