An open letter to Mr. George van Diem

Hello Mr. George van Diem, in my previous letter to you, I agree with Stephen Oppenheimer (1), the only way south out of Africa by prehistoric people took place about 90-85,000 years ago. Along the way, there were groups of people who invaded India, forming the first population here. But 74,000 years ago, the Toba disaster and atomic winter destroyed them and their Indian habitat. Meanwhile, the migration flow has reached Southeast Asia and 70,000 years ago set foot on Vietnamese soil. However, in a 2012 article, Oppenheimer himself retracted this statement. But, by my research, I found his 2003 discovery to be correct, so I still maintain my opinion. By examining 35 Stone Age skulls and 35 Metal Age skulls, Vietnamese anthropology discovered that two great strains of Australoid (M) and Mongoloid (N) fused to give rise to three ancient Vietnamese strains, namely Indonesian (haplogroup O), Melanesian (haplogroup C), vedoid (D), of the same type group of Australoid. (2) Meanwhile, a number of individual Mongoloid groups ascended northwest of Indochina and stopped in front of the northern icy wall.

About 50,000 years ago, due to the increase in population, people from Vietnam went to the islands of Southeast Asia, to Australia. Perhaps due to the habit of racial gathering, the Negrito came to the Andaman and Nicoba islands. There were groups that crossed Laos and Myanmar, reconquered India at this time without people, becoming the first inhabitants of the subcontinent, called the Dravidians.

40,000 years ago, thanks to an improved climate, people from Vietnam went to China. From the Southwest of mainland China, an influx of people penetrated the Tibetan plateau, entered Northeast India, becoming the regional Dravidians. Meanwhile, the group of Mongoloid people from Northwest Indochina followed the Western China corridor to Mongolia. Because of keeping pure genetic resources, it is called North Mongoloid.

7000 years ago, at Yangshao South Yellow River, the ancient Viet met and merged with the North Mongoloid people, giving birth to the South Mongoloid race, known as the modern Viet. The modern Viet people increased in number, becoming subjects of the Yellow River basin. Over the course of history, the South Mongoloid people migrated south, genetically transferring the South Chinese, Vietnamese, and Southeast Asians to the South Mongoloid strain.

About 5000 years ago, from the west of the Yellow River basin, the South Mongoloid brought agriculture to the southwest, invading Northeastern India. This migration was predominantly male, creating the region's Austroasiatic-speaking population. About 4000 years ago, from Vietnam, an influx of South Mongoloid people passed through Laos, Myanmar to India, contributing to the Austroasiatic-speaking community here. Thus, there are two classes of population from Vietnam infiltrating East India. At the same time, there were also two classes of populations from China infiltrating Northeast India. The first wave of Australoid genetic code, spoke ancient Vietnamese. The latter is the genetic code for South Mongoloid, speaking an Austroasiatic language.

Dear Professor George van Driem, in your article you wrote: “The Indo-China structure contains all the languages of Asia and Oceania as far as Japan, Polynesia and Papua New Guinea... The idea that all Asian and Oceanic languages share some "common mixed origin" appealed to the British colonial authorities, who were convinced that they would be able to rule the peoples. Asians would be better off if a language study program to understand Indian could be implemented. Over time, the putative Indo-Chinese language family has shrunk in size, but the model is also tinged with racist rhetoric. Chinese has been a written language for millennia, with it serving as a vehicle for an advanced civilization. However, the eccentric and isolated position with which the Chinese were excluded in the Indochinese genealogy was not based on any appreciation of the subtleties of Chinese culture, but on a racist judgment. to the Chinese language and people arose among Western scholarship at the time of the Opium Wars. The renaming of Indochinese doctrine to “SinoTibetan” in 1924 helped to mask earlier racist underpinnings, but the model continues to treat Sinitic as a phylogenetic oddity.”

Sir, this is worth discussing. First of all, it shows that the identification of language families is not based on scientific basis but on political prejudice. Then, due to the lack of understanding of the origin of the Chinese population, the linguists did not understand the Chinese language correctly. From studying the process of population formation in East Asia shows that, although John Caspar Leyden said: “The Indo-China structure contains all the languages of Asia and Oceania down to Japanese, Polynesian and Papua New Guinea…” but in fact should be “Vietnamese Structure.” Because Vietnam was the first place where modern people appeared and from there spread to dominate Asia, Vietnamese is the mother of Eastern languages. Therefore, the Vietnamese structure contains all the languages of Asia, Oceania to Japan, Polynesia and Papua New Guinea...

From a survey of 35 stone age skulls and 35 metal age skulls found in Vietnam, Professor Nguyen Dinh Khoa discovered: "In the Stone Age, on Vietnamese soil, two prehistoric human races appeared, Mongoloid and Australoid. They interbred and their descendants continued to breed become four strains of ancient Vietnamese: Indonesian, Melanesian, Vedoid and Negritoid, the same group of Australoid type. In the metal age, the Mongoloid appeared and became the subject of this land. The Australoids gradually disappeared, whether by migration or assimilation?" (2) Of course, at this time, the leading anthropologist in Vietnam cannot know, where did prehistoric people come from and where else did the Vietnamese go? But Chuan-Chao Wang & Hui Li say the prehistoric East Asian population is distributed as follows: (3)

image009Haplogroup C = Melanesian

Haplogroup D = Negritos

Halogroup   N = Mongoloid

Halogruop   O = Indonesian

Thus, although there is no genetic material, with the work of Nguyen Dinh Khoa, we can confirm that people from Vietnam went to China.

During those first migrations, the ancient Vietnamese made up the world's population. Of course, Old Vietnamese was the language of the original inhabitants of the lands. Not only as John Caspar Leyden observed: "The Indo-China structure contains all the languages ​​of Asia and Oceania as far as Japan, Polynesia and Papua New Guinea", but in fact, the ancient Vietnamese language did so the original language of the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Native Americans, but also the subject of making up the European language. To be fair, Leyden's proposal isn't the earliest. In 1892, French Admiral Henri Frey in Paris published the work L'Annamite mere dés language, saying that Vietnamese is the mother of the world's languages. (4)

The reason Leyden's proposal was questioned is because the linguists did not understand the history of the formation of the Chinese population, so they did not understand the history of the Chinese language. Now, archeology and genetics have confirmed that the first inhabitants of China were ancient Vietnamese, mainly Indonesians. Therefore, Chinese is ancient Vietnamese. About 7000 years ago, the South Mongoloid was born in the Southern Yellow River, being a mongrel hybrid, so it was influenced by the Mongolian language. The first is in grammar. The order in Vietnamese is the main component first, the sub-element after: I đi trước, quả bầu, lá dong, thịt gà... Meanwhile in Mongolian, the main component is behind: Tôi trước đi, bầu quả, gà thịt, dong lá... After 2698 BC, when the Mongols occupied the Central Yellow River and established the Emperor's state, the Chinese language changed to a more Mongol way of speaking. However, until the Han Dynasty, Chinese was still basically Vietnamese. Witnessing this is the book  說文解字 (Shuōwén Jiězì- How to read and interpret words), a book that is considered the first Chinese dictionary but is actually a Vietnamese dictionary. It confirms that all Chinese characters are correct only when read according to Vietnamese sounds and interpreted according to the ancient Vietnamese meaning. This shows that, until the Han Dynasty, the Chinese still spoke Vietnamese.

Since the Han Dynasty, many millions of Altaic, Tungusic, and Turkic people have invaded from the West and North, and there was the periods when the Yuan and Qing people dominated China for hundreds of years, so the Chinese changed to the voice of the court in the capital. Because the Yuan and Qing are foreigners, they do not pronounce certain Vietnamese rhymes correctly, so they are forced to speak with a lisp. This lisp became the official language of the Chinese people. In fact, mandarin is a way of speaking Vietnamese livid by foreigners that is imposed on the Chinese people. It can also be said that Chinese is a degraded version of Vietnamese. Therefore, Chinese has become a deformed language in the Vietnamese language family.

Not a linguist, but searching for Vietnamese roots forced me to work with historical linguistics. I think that, two centuries ago, due to the limitations of humanities on the origin of humans and Eastern races, historical linguistics was born with the ambition of comparing languages ​​to find out the origins of different people races. But in fact, the linguists were wrong when determining the Eastern language families. This is even worse today, when most scholars carry out the reverse process to want from historical linguistics to find out the origin of the ethnic groups. I went the other way, from archeology and genetics to the early origins of Asians and their migration into the world. And naming languages ​​is the job of linguists. I hope return the correct position to the truth: Vietnamese is the source of all Eastern languages.

Looking forward to discussing this subject with you in the hope of learning more.

Best regards

Ha Van Thuy
