    Dacian and Thracian languages

    Hello

    I would like to know the linguistic affiliations of both Dacian and Thracian. Now, I know that the latter is a Satem language similar to Balto-Slavic and Indo-Iranian(Aryan) languages, but that's about it. I've heard some theories that they might have been Baltic languages, but I find to be a bit..well, believable to say the least, and there's no consensus on that.

    Like, can we say that Thracian and Dacian are just local languages with no clear relations to other Indo-European languages and branches due to the extreme scarcity of these languages? I mean, I personally don't find the idea that they were Baltic languages to be reasonable really, and I think that these languages merely share similar common linguistic ancestry with Balto-Slavic and Indo-Iranian(Aryan) languages, no?

    My current knowledge and intepretation goes like that:
    Daco-Thracian is an independent Indoeuropean branch, but its closest relative on the tree is Balto-Slavic. I also think that one likely candidate for the spread of Daco-Thracian is Gva-Holigrady and that this Urnfield-related expansion spread E-V13 to the Carpathian and Balkan region, with the Thraco-Cimmerian horizon and related Urnfield spreads, including Celtic Iron Age, much beyond.
    Balto-Slavs would have been the direct neighbours to the North East before their departure to the South, which would fit the linguistic position.

    Oh. It does makes sense if I think about it.
