    How proto IE sounded like?



    I've found this interesting video of a recronstructed speech in proto IE.




    Does it sound like anything living language to you?

    well no matter my pre-cautions, I Think the colour of the speaker sends as to a mixed accent,
    a Good question is the syntax is after W Europe or after Sanshqrit
    I mean SVO or OVS
    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.

    Possibly:

    words:

    'Werunom' - something like latin declination of Werunos ?
    'e est' - sounds like latin est ?
    'moe' - like slavic for 'mine' ?
    'sunum' - declination of a similar word like son ?
    'pathe(r?)' obviously father

    possible sentences:

    "to rekis e est" - "a king (rex) once was" ? - "there once was a king" ???
    "kelukhi moe, pathé werunae!" - "hear mine, father werunos!"
    "uell mi sunum" - "want me son" ? - I want a son ?

    Some could be utter nonsense though.
    It was spoken with english pronounciation I guess.

    The guy tried at least to do it in accordance with sound laws, as shown in this video:
