  1. Do the Mongols count?

    Do the Mongols count?
  2. Poll: What is Your Favourite Architectural Style From the Middle Ages to the 19th Century?

    So many styles... Which is your favourite? I'm personally divided betreen Romanesque, Ottonian and Gothic.

    Wasn't it claimed that Basque and Iberian numerals are cognate? Numerals would be one of the most probable terms a hunter-gatherer population would borrow from an agricultural one, in my opinion.

    By any chance, are the Basque agricultural terms related to the Iberian ones? Or are they internally reconstructible from other earlier vocabulary?

    The Kyrie of the Messe de Nostre Dame by Guillaume de Machaut, one of the most famous composers and poets the 14th century:

    You are right, I always confuse those two. And this could be added to the fact that, by c. 2300 BC, the difference between the dialects of IE must nut have been quite large.
  7. Personally, I have the theory that this "hybrid...

    Personally, I have the theory that this "hybrid nature" can be explained by the entrance of the Beaker culture from Central Europe to northern Europe, thus bringing Proto-Italo-Celtic vocabulary and...

    Apart from that, it's also safe to say that the Anatolian branch broke off from PIE earlier than any other branch (what would be the dominant haplogroup of the proto-Anatolians, R1b or R1a?).
    I...

    Indeed. There reason there are so many IE subgrouping models, and none very conclusive, is because of the difficulty in finding these lexical correspondences.
  10. What I mean is that, although I agree that there...

    What I mean is that, although I agree that there was a population movement, I don't think the movement was cultural or linguistic, or that the Beaker folk were ethnolinguistically homogeneous. I...

    As for the relationship between Basque and...

    As for the relationship between Basque and Iberian, I would say that, as with the aDNA results of G2a recently found in Mediterranean Iberia, it would at least to me seem likely that the Iberian...

    Here are some annotations, I will expand them later.
  13. Really? I have a Basque friend and one from...

    Really? I have a Basque friend and one from Barcelona, and i hear them exactly the same... Then again, maybe you develop a more expert ear for the different accents on the place one lives.

    They certainly are, many more can be found here:

    In Mexico, there certainly are different accents spoken by the indigenous communities around the country, especially as for many it is their second language. However, in the case of Basque I believe...
  16. What would you think of the possibility of...

    What would you think of the possibility of Tartessian being an IE but non-Celtic language (like Lusitanian)? I say this because in the Late Bronze Age, Southwest Iberia participated fully in the...

    Widespread bilingualism and cultural homogeneity, in my opinion.
  18. Something I find against the theory of the Beaker...

    Something I find against the theory of the Beaker culture being Indo-European is their practice of megalithism. In Scandinavia and the North European Plain, megalithism was thriving during the non-IE...

    Maciamo, you mention that "the oldest Bronze age culture in Western Europe is found in Portugal (2600 BCE, and possibly as early as 2900 BCE)"... Don't you mean Copper Age? The Bronze Age only...

    Celts in the Tarim Basin! That's something you don't hear everyday... Interesting, but I highly doubt it. Any Hallstatt metalurgy in the Tarim Basin? Any Celtic toponyms, personal names or vocabulary...
  21. In my opinion, Tocharian folk can be equated with...

    In my opinion, Tocharian folk can be equated with the Afanasevo archaeological culture, and split c. 2500 or a bit earlier from the main PIE stock.
  22. You're right, I mixed up. "Manducare" does come...

    You're right, I mixed up. "Manducare" does come from "mandare", but this "mandare" (which means "chew") is etymologically unrelated to the other "mandare" (send).
    The "mandare" from where...
  23. "Manducare" comes from latin "mandare", which in...

    "Manducare" comes from latin "mandare", which in turn comes from PIE *mhanos (hand: Proto-Germanic *mnha-to-, Albanian "marr", Hittite "maniyahh-", etc.)
  24. I think this is a telling point: The L11 in...

    I think this is a telling point: The L11 in Greece is extremely sparse, so I would say the Mycenaeans were most probably R1a.
  25. Very, very interesting! If L11 is from around...

    Very, very interesting! If L11 is from around 2,500 BC, that would place it right at the time of the Beakers reaching the Lower Danube:...
