  Vocative case - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Historically, the vocative case was an element of the Indoeuropean system of cases, and existed in Latin, Sanskrit, and Classical Greek.
The asterisk in front of the Indoeuropean words means that they are merely hypothetical reconstructions, not based on any written sources.
In Polish, unlike in Latin, the vocative is almost always different from the nominative case and is formed according to a complex grammatical pattern.

 The Original Nominal System of Proto-Indoeuropean - Case and Gender   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Regarding personal pronouns which do not distinguish gender in Indoeuropean languages one must be interested in their accusative (absolute case) ending.
As the verb already corresponded to the agent of the sentence, it is not surprising that this primitive innovation was well-suited to win the run for the agent representation.
This was the begin of the Indoeuropean nominative era leading to the commonly reconstructed Proto-Indoeuropean stage.

For this period anyhow, we have some hints that the population of at least parts of europe already was indoeuropean, as we know that the first greek migration has to be dated to about 1800 BC, and those greeks, as far as we know, already spoke an indoeuropean language.
Even less than that we know if this shift was motivated by an "indoeuropean invasion" somewhere out of the russian plains, if it was just a fashion to become indoeuropean or if it was just an evolution thet took place in all of europe which transformed the preindoeuropean society to an indoeuropean one.
As a matter of fact, however it was, it has to be stated that the great mass of the population even in case of an invasion would stay the same "preinvasion" population and only slowly being changed through intermixture to a new population, a mixed invader-invaded population.

The Indoeuropean language is the mother of all possible languages.
It is called Indoeuropean cause it connects Asia (India) with Europe (it is a geographic term, not a linguistic term).
The Indoeuropean language is considered to be the first ever spoken language.

The Indoeuropean rates are based on the data in file IE-DATA1.
The paper just cited also illustrates the use of replacement rates to estimate time separations among the speech varieties, and presents graphs to contrast the time separations for Indoeuropean and Austronesian with time separations that would have been yielded by the classical assumption that "all replacement rates are equal".
Some of the glosses are followed by notes to characterize the meaning, but the lexicostatistical literature (including the original listing of these meanings by Morris Swadesh in 1952) should be consulted for further clarification.

Rationale for the volume and its scope: This book is an in-depth study of a morphologically rich non-indoeuropean language from a minimalist perspective.
Such studies are rare to find and will be welcomed by the community of scholars interested in morphosyntactic properties that are not overtly found in Indoeuropean languages.
Reflexives and reciprocal suffixes will be analyzed in detail as morphological processes that affect argument structure and are different from their pronominal counterpart in most Indoeuropean languages and do not require agreement.

The evidence of a proto IndoEuropean language is derived from the physical attributes of words themselves in various IndoEuropean languages.
Since all IndoEuropean languages share these similar words, linguists believe the words must represent common things in the lives of the proto-indo speakers.
They don’t share such words as camel, rice, bamboo which have different roots in various languages and cannot be traced to one language so they must have been added later.

They have tried to unravel the paths by which the language broke into daughter languages that spread throughout Eurasia, seeking at the origin of those paths the homeland of the protolanguage itself.
Tocharian was another language family that diverged from the IndoEuropean protolanguage quite early.
The rooting of the IndoEuropean languages in eastern Anatolia is also suggested by the frequency of words borrowed from a number of languages that flourished there: Semitic, Kartvelian, Sumerian and even Egyptian.

 The common Indoeuropean heritage of Welsh and Hindi | Wikinerds Portal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Proto-Indoeuropean is a hypothetical language spoken by the common ancestors of most Europeans, Iranians and Indians: the Indoeuropeans.
As the Indoeuropeans migrated in Europe, Iran and India, their language quickly changed and divided in what are now the members of the Indoeuropean language group.
It is not a dialect of English but a distinct language, although both of them are members of the Indoeuropean group (with English being in the Germanic subgroup and Welsh in the Celtic).

 Relations between Indoeuropean and Afroasiatic Languages
As an age of at least tenthousand years is supposed for this family it is worth noticing that the Sahara was green at the time of Proto-Afroasiatic and that Europe was under the influence of the last glacial epoch at the same time.
It has been seldom noticed that any relationship between Indoeuropean and Semitic languages requires the assumption of a relationship between the Indoeuropean and the entire Afroasiatic family.
The common origin of gender in Central Khoisan, Afroasiatic and Indoeuropean already has been maintained, as this feature is a rare one among the world's language families.

The Pelasgi were perhaps the first inhabitants of the Palatine, the hill on which Rome would later rise, and perhaps the very ancient town called "square Rome" is attributed to them.
The Arcadi, originally from Peloponnesia, speaking an ancient Greek language, and therefore Indoeuropean, is the perfect example of this fusion between Indoeuropean people and pre-Indoeuropean populations, given that Peloponnesia is the region in which the Pelasgic presence lasted the longest.
This half consisted partly of people speaking Indoeuropean idioms, like Arcadians of Evandro, of whom the presence on the Roman hills of the Palatine would be dated to 60 years before the Trojan war or, like Ulysses' Achei and Enea's Trojans, immediately after the Trojan war.

What intrigued me, was the occurence of a “pet fl pig” in the among the descendants of the *s-k- root.
In IndoEuropean, the root for “sow, pig” *su:-, *su-in- belongs with the *s-w- root.

For instance, when Europeans first came to Australia, they found hundreds of aborigine languaes, no two of which apparently resembled eachother any more than English and Japanese resemble eachother.
The two language groups should be strongly related but, in real life, other than for a few borrowed words, they are not related at all.
In other words, when IndoEuropean, Semitic, and other peoples met in the Mediterranean basin, since some of them wrote from right to left and others wrote from left to right and since vowel sounds were not written at first, when one nation borrowed a word from another, the order of consonents frequently got reversed.

There is no meaningful racial difference between IndoEuropean and Semitic peoples and you'd not figure that more than 5,000 or 6,000 years or so had passed since the two groups split up.
Moreover, amongst the few borrowed words, there are a sizable number of what are called "reversals".
These reversals included names of gods and godesses (Anath/Athene, Hermes/Mercurius etc.), and any number of common conceptions:
