As far as I can see, the "deleted answer":
"america" could be interpreted as four words
a me ri ca
where the etymology of each word leads to a distinct meaning in antiquity, surviving today.
does attempt to do the following:
breaking up the word into its syllables, treating each syllable as a distinct word, with ancient origin/etymology. And ascribing each of theses syllables/"words" a nondescript meaning, "surviving to this day".
So far, so good.
But this "deleted answer" is not really an answer.
It may have been the start of an answer, even a good one? But it falls short of actually answering the question.
First, there is no explanation given to what these "ancient words" might mean, what their etymology might mean/reveal. Wheter their meaning/etymology in separation or in combination. You are the curator of your sources and references. You give us none.
each word leads to a distinct meaning in antiquity
to which the vast majority of your readers (who are "spoon fed" the wrong ideas, as you wrote) will retort: "and this distinct meaning is: what, exactly?"
Then, I have to assume, you claim that these syllables were used way before Amerigo/Waldseemüller to refer to anything, in the conjunction as they are used now ("today"). That might be the case, I do not know either way, but we do not get any evidence for that, either. And since I already had to assume this motive, my reading might have gone off the rails already.
There is a certain contradiction in the way you claim that these small facts you present are somehow self-evident and at the same time too obscure for most people to even know and even to strange to write down in the answer?
If you really care about the undeletion of this question:
- cite and quote your evidence, your scholarly sources or literature (if they are, ahm, let's say: "obscure"/"contrarian"/"revisionist" etc, you have to do that within your post. People need to be able to read and check that for themselves and obscure books are not readily available in every library or elsewhere.)
- explain what thee syllables/words did mean in antiquity or do mean now (quotes welcome again)
- describe, analyse, explain: how, where, when, by whom these words were connected to the very roughly interpreted frame of the question –– or whether that usage has demonstrably changed some point in time
This History:SE is a question and answer site.
In it's currently deleted form the "deleted answer" is not an answer.
All I see in this "deleted answer" is an allusion based on, well, I don't know, since this is just not a real answer (cf Semaphore's comment above), no facts, no explanation, no references, no evidence.
This site is not intended to give a reader of answers only vague incentives for a wild goose chase on some search terms. That is the job of an answer.
As stated in Mark's comment above:
OP asserts that "America" can be interpreted as four words. That assertion is novel, and novel interpretations require evidence. I don't have the tools (context, historiography, etc.) to understand this answer. I was merely asking OP to give me the tools to understand this interpretation.
Please note: Nothing I wrote here is definitively qualifying the (possible?) content of your post on main. Whether that may end up as horrible, debatable or brilliant – or already is, I do not comment on here. The current format and the rudiments of a methodology are just unsuitable to begin with.
