Discuss an account of the Indo- European Language family, paying close attention to when and where the individual languages are attested and the ways we establish the relationship between the languages.
The spread was most certainly due to the ancient Caucasian tribe of Ha-Ug. They learned how to make rope, and harnessed horses with it, giving themselves a mighty fighting advantage. They lived in the mountains and called themselves Sky-Men (Ha-Ug), which is where the term Caucas-ian comes from. Ha-Ug appears to also be the origin of the term Blue-Blood. This is because Blue and Sky were the same word “Hai” which became Kai, Goy, Guy. Later with a S-Cythian S added as a prefix it became the word Sky. They established themselves over indigenous peoples wherever they went. Hence the reason why genetically there can be found great genetic mixtures everywhere and yet linguistically IE languages are dominant.
The Indo-European languages are a family of between 400 and 500 languages that are theorized to descend from a single language some 6000 or more years ago. This theoretical ancestor is referred to as “Proto-Indo-European.”
In the 16th century AD Westerners in India began to notice similarities between the languages spoken there and European languages with which they were more familiar. However, the term Indo-European was not invented to describe this larger family of languages until the 1800s.
Proto-Indo-European is thought to have originated North of the Caucasus. It includes languages that were originally spoken in an area from Ireland through Europe, Anatolia, Persia, and the Indian Subcontinent. Today, the majority of the languages spoken in North and South America, Europe, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Australia and New Zealand are all Indo-European.
