Hello again, Brian
Not sure what you mean by the philology of Sumerian KIK being complicated. It has the given meanings 'wheat', 'troublesome', and 'sick'. I wasn't attempting to link it to kukao, but to kykeon which, as far as I can tell, might have been pronounced 'kik' at some point. On the contrary, it seems to me that the problem might well be between two words of ancient Greek and whether or not kykeon is proven to stem directly from kukao - and, if so, how did the difference in spelling between those two words come about. The Sumero-Greek 'coincidences' that I have so far disccovered don't involve any twisting of vowel sounds. They are all straightforward, straight-line etymologies - and there are quite a few. But I'm not a Greek scholar so perhaps there is indeed an explanation for phonetic kukao becoming kykeon.
Another snippet: Greek Hebe takes her name in symbols HE-BE which together have the meaning (Sumerian lexicons and not fantasy) 'to mix the beer'. She appears in my ongoing re-translation of 'Enki's Journey to Nibru' (lines 101-102). If I remember correctly, you said Sanskrit was the founding language. But it would be a pity to miss this vital link that only the Sumerian language provides. Just saying.
