Joseph Aronesty graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 1971*. He earned a scholarship to Wharton School but transferred to liberal arts in his junior year to focus on history, literature and music theory. In 2003, his closest friend at U of P unexpectedly passed away, and he began to reflect on a conversation they had in 1969.
“As I reassembled our conversation, and put his theorem through various tests, I realized that my friend had discovered something about the English language that was not being taught anywhere: spoken sounds have specific, predictable meanings within English words. Those meanings are the same regardless of what word they are found in.
I discovered that both the sounds within words and the shapes of the English letters that formed those sounds, could be used to predict basic meanings of words. It is why a Butt looks like a B, a Snake looks like an S and a C looks like a Claw! All English letters function like hieroglyphs. It became clear to me that these same visual-to-aural links must have been known by the scribes who created our alphabets about 5000 years ago.
English letters are little pictures that resemble the original sound-to-meaning relationship of the various letters.
This knowledge slowly slipped into a collective fog over time, because after listening and reading became the new way of thinking, the need to know the aural-visual links of language disappeared.”
Knowledge of the history of words ultimately points to a prior brotherhood of man, a concept not historically smiled upon by our many nation/state rulers who often retain their power via weaponry over both actual and alleged foreign enemies. Historically, there’s never been a great stake invested in global brotherhood, but with today’s weaponry its never been more important. Pure math dictates that. When we discover how close our languages are, we can’t help but realize that we are all the same here on planet earth. So I feel what I have discovered is very important knowledge to be widely accepted as fact and understood on a global level.
CLC Theorem: English words contain audible pieces of code that can predict a word’s meaning by its sound, or the physical formation of those sounds.
Driven by a passion for the truth, I immersed myself into the roots of the English language, took linguistic courses and researched word history for many years. Finally in 2008, I posed my ideas to Noam Chomsky via email and he invited me to MIT to discuss my theories and ways to prove it. This all resulted in my book on English word history, Deciphering the English Code, which traces English words back through Old English, Germanic, Latin, Hebrew – to their true sources in the prehistoric Stone Ages in Africa, with simple codes anyone can understand.
“Spoken language evolved about 100,000 years ago as an upgrade to the technology we used in the body/sign language we had been using for a million years tom communicate. Spoken language was created when we were still hunter-gatherers in Africa, so many of its first inspirations were about visual hunting language. The roots of English and all languages are indeed that old.”

PS* I was in a class at Wharton with Donald Trump in 1967: International Finance. Donald Trump had his homework paid for in that class. Just saying. I am not a fan. And I, like many of my colleagues, look forward to the day his presidency is over and we can return to a pursuit of knowledge and focusing on doing good things for more everyday human beings, not just his greedy, heartless friends.
Educators, researchers and students are invited to email Joseph Aronesty at: email@example.com. – Discussions on the origins of English words and words in any PIE language are welcome.
Joseph posits that all Western (PIE) languages rely on the same basic codes. So what he has discovered will be of great importance to people all over the world – especially now – as a concrete basis for global brotherhood is sorely needed.
Mr Aronesty believes a study into our many diverse languages, based on the specific sound-to-meaning codes he illuminates in his book and this blog, would reveal how our languages are all connected.
Mr. Aronesty is currently looking for linguist/statistics majors to help design a definitive study to prove this general theorem.
Contact him for details.
Joseph Aronesty graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 1971. He was even in an International Finance class with Donald Trump, back in the day.
When the Internet became viable in 1995, he created, with help from his oldest son, Erik – now a programmer for Bloomberg in NYC, what is arguably is the world’s first click and buy e-commerce website, WigSalon.com. He still operates WigSalon today.
Joseph is also a published songwriter, with hundreds of songs in his catalog. He now writes with musicians in Los Angeles, where he makes his home. He is an activist and his songs often reflect his political point of view.
