Corded Ware Culture Signals Population Change in Europe

it's not sure - Corded could have been proto-satem language speakers, close to proto-slavo-baltic tribes -
I see them becoming 'germanic' in N-W Europe after assimilation into a mix of others people where neolitihical descendants were very seldom, and new ones, rather Y-R1b-U106 and Y-I1 people were the bulk -
the first proto-germanic (centum) element could have been some Y-R1b-U152 group (old northwestern I-Ean, akin to celtic, italic, ligurian, germanic) acculturating the others in the Saale area and then into Jutland and Scandia, with a consonnant drift due, perhaps, to Y-I1 population (not to the haplogroup!)
Slavic and Baltic language families, separated 3100-3400 years ago, this is 1000-1500 years less than the Corded Ware culture Era, while Slavic languages are 1400-1600 years old.
Possibly Slavic languages came from Steppe region, together with Huns(Hunnic words Strava Med).
The Suobeni/Suoveni (Sloveni?) were between Rha(Volga) river and southern Urals.
 
Also in Poland before the Slavic language were spoken Germanic dialects.
So the R1a is possibly Pre-Germanic in Europe.

The Corded Ware folk arrived in Europe long before the German language evolved. We don't know what language Corded Ware people spoke, but it certainly wasn't Proto-German.

My mistake, I wanted to say that R1a in Europe are Pre-Germanic people, people who were there before(pre=before) of those who brought Germanic languges, and those who gave substratum to Germanic languges

No, probably not. R1a seems to have first entered Europe about 5000 years ago, bringing ANE ancestry with them, so they're clearly related genetically to the Indo-Europeans who followed them, and although we don't know whether they spoke an IE language, some people seem to think they did. We can't say for sure they didn't.

ANE clearly is peaking among Macro-Caucasians, like the Burusho and N.Caucasians
 
R1a possibly gave Macro-Caucasian substratum to Germanic,
and after that, the R1a possibly gave Germanic adstratum to Slavic.

So? That does nothing to alter the fact that R1a Corded Ware folk were ANE.

No, the pre-IE substratum in German would have come from Neolithic farmers who kept their language and culture in the forests of Germany long after the IE folk had triumphed elsewhere.

Also Corded Ware ceramics(Pengtoushan culture) were found in Chinese Neolithic

Germanic begin to spread in Iron age mostly together with hidden in Scandinavia Neolithic I1 haplogroup, so the substratum should be from Bronze age(R1a).

So what? That just proves that R1a had a wide distribution in Asia even before Corded Ware and IE spread it to Europe. I'm sure any Neolithic Chinese R1a folk spoke a different language that Corded Ware or IE folk.

No. Where ANE peaks in current populations only gives you information about current populations.

German may have spread from Germany or it may have spread from Scandinavia. In either case, that does not preclude the survival of pre-IE languages during the Bronze or Iron Age in that area. Pre-IE languages survived into the Iron Age in other parts of Europe, even though they didn't contribute as much to IE languages as the Neolithic substratum did in Germany or Scandinavia.

Chinese Neolithic came from southern part of Central Asia via Wakhan Corridor that is close to Burusho(Macro-Caucasian, Sino-Caucasian) people.

The Burusho are a modern people who are mainly R2a not R1a and don't appear to be native to the area where they now live, according to Wikipedia.
 
R1a possibly gave Macro-Caucasian substratum to Germanic,
and after that, the R1a possibly gave Germanic adstratum to Slavic.

For example the Burusho people have a Suffix "sk"(Burusha-ski)

This Suffix "sk" is also in Germanic languages
Sven-ska(as substratum from Macro-Caucasian)

And in Leto-Slavic languages
Pol-ska(as adstratum from Germanic)

No the R1a among Burusho is 25,8+2,1=27.9%
And also Burusho people have the highest diversity of haplogroup P in the Region
R1a_ 27.9%
R1*_ 1%
R2__ 14.4%
R*__ 10,3%
Q___ 2.1%
P*__ 1%

You just made a good case for sk being IE. A modern composite population like the Burusho may have acquired DNA, culture and/or language from a variety of sources but you really need to know your history before guessing about those sources.

I'm not sure of what your answer want assert - cultures are n't born suddenly, they have had all of them some previous stage or stageS (if cultural admixtures or assimilations) -Corded began about the 3000/2900 BC, OK, but that don"t disrpove they could have been already an I-Ean language, and even a proto-satem one (not completely evolved satem)... some of their genetic traits seem link them to Baltic people, accroding to some surveys...that said, my proposition was a bet, nothing more, waiting for more reliable data
