An Article regarding the dragon as a talker
Serpent as Talker
In Arabic, the sequence ‘akh’ (brother) recites ‘haka’ (the Syrian word to speak, talk or tell), connoting ‘acan’ (a flaming seraph). ‘Acan’ informs the Old English noun ‘hack’ (a serpent), adjoined with an ‘angel or messenger’ - Arabic ‘hakim’ (a ruler). To emphasize the snake a fallen angel is correlated with the monarch and ruler covert to initiatory knowledge.
The angel, snake or dragon, is represented as a ‘talker’, and in religious depictions is often grouped with a parrot denoting the faculty of speech. According to the shaman Credo Mutwa, the African deities the ‘Chitauri’ literally (Children of the serpent) are referred to as the ‘Talkers’. In Japan, the red serpent Gods the ‘tengu’ (a goblin or braggart), are likewise equated with ‘talking’. The epithet ‘tengu’ is a play on the Japanese noun ‘tango’ (word) and is an idea concurrent in the Semitic.
In apocryphal literature the ‘angel’ represented esoterically as a ‘dragon or king’ is identified with speech correlated with initiatory knowledge. For example, the Greek term ‘angelos’ (an angel) is translated from the Hebrew word ‘mal’akh’ (an angel), obtained from the verbal root ‘amar’ (to speak or command). Establishment of the ‘word’ (Hebrew amira) agrees with the Arabic verbal root ‘amara’ (a fleet), exhibited as the angelic ‘host’ (ha’mon).
Appearance of the snake, depicted as the angel, king or builder personifies the spoken ‘word’ (a construct or form), commensurate with the ‘multiple’. In the Greek language ‘phonein’ (speak) is cognate with ‘phane’ (a spirit) a derivation from the Egyptian root ‘fennu’ (a serpent). Philologically, the ‘double’ (an apparition) proceeds from the Semitic stem ‘debar’ (to talk), relative to ‘dabir’ (a sanctuary), nominal of ‘dabh’ (sacrifice). The word groupings are aligned in the Indo-European languages with the ‘devil’ classified as a talker conceptual to the ‘double’ or word.
