Kort beskrivelse af emnet

By a stroke of luck it is possible to recover that there is a direct relation between the long-extinct languages Hattic (central Anatolia) and Minoan (Crete), on the one hand, and the language or languages spoken by the first agriculturalists in Southeast and Central Europe between 8000 and 5000 BC, on the other. I intend to produce the arguments involved. The question arises how a study of Hattic, about whose structure can be discovered a lot more than about Minoan, may cast light on the linguistic map of pre-Indo-European Europe and on the problem of how Indo-European languages may have been influenced by this substratum.

No special knowledge about linguistics is required in order to be able to follow the lecture.Til toppen
