    Minoan lingustics

    does the hypotheses of Peter Revesz that the Minoans were Uralic speakers have any weight?

    I would post a link but sadly this forum says my account is too young

    Definitely not. The idea that the Minoans were Uralic speakers is not supported by any evidence and is also rejected by the autosomal DNA of the Minoan samples analyzed so far.

    Peter Revesz belongs to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He seems to be one of the many non-specialists who believe that anyone without a specific linguistic background can deal with ancient languages.
