Shuswap, as I remember, an amerindian language of British Columbia, i.e.
the northernmost of the Interior Salish languages, is said to have phonetics that strongly resemble the presumed phonetics of ProtoIndoEuropean.
I got that from Aert H. Kuipers, The Shuswap Language, 1974.

 Seashore Poetry Gentle Critiques Forum: Re: BETWEEN HEART BEATS
One could insert at any point here a a new line as into stream of consciousness and hope it would fit the form of a poem, much as placing sticks together can sort of build a house and hope it will fill the space and serve the same as a house.
Synonyms and homophones are interesting especially in the protoindoeuropean languages.
And too, it must be said that Finnegan's Wake, early twentieth century icon as it is in stream of consciousnes certainly stands out as readable- in fact highly so in the hands of someone who also wrote "The Dubliners" and "Poertait of an Artist as a Young Man" Still.

 The Noble Path
The Eternal Tradition, Senotenodhermn in ProtoIndoEuropean, Sanatanadharma in Sanskrit, Senotenoderma in Nemeta Iectis (Old Celtic), also called Arioweghya, is the religion and culture of the IndoEuropean peoples.
This includes the ancient and original form, as well as all the branches and descendants of it, which have remained true to the noble principles of our culture.
These terms are in the form of reconstructed ProtoIndoEuropean used by the IndoEuropean tribe called Teuta Leukwios, which was founded by Belenios before his initiation as a Druid.

 LINGUIST List 14.1630: Etymology of Greek word PALAIOS
JFF The problem with the Tamil loan etymology for paleo is that in fact, that word has a doublet in Greek itself -- the Greek form tele- is related to it.
They both come from the same *ProtoIndoeuropean source, a root *kwal MYC The Greek doublet tele-and its source word Kwal are very much available in Tamil.
Tholai is distant which compares with tele-in Greek.It is more probable that the word tholai can be derived from thol, than the word tele- having come from Kwal which begins with a distinctly different sound Kwa.

 interact, by Sean Meade
A remarkable thing happens in such waters: wood, cloth, food, and other organic materials do not decay and disappear — ships that went to the bottom hundreds or thousands of years ago still rest on the seafloor in almost the same condition as when they sailed the surface (via the always excellent lagado on MetaFilter).
This may bear fruit in study of the ProtoIndoEuropean culture that probably began near this area.
There's some interesting speculation that the flood which created the Black Sea could have been Noah's flood (if you accept that Noah's flood was not a global flood).

NOTE: The English word 'pure' derives (via loan from Latin purus) from the Protoindoeuropean stem *peue- which means "to purify, cleanse" [AHDofIER] and may in fact come from the ultimate source as bârar.
Although some may see Zephaniah 3:9 as a reference to glossolalia, it speaks of clarified, refined, and purified speech in general.

 Talk History Forum - Latin
But supposing that it was the oldest it doesn't explain why it should be the source of the Latin.
I have no opinion of my own on the subject, but at university I was taught that Latin and Sanskrit are both "daughters" of a Protoindoeuropean language, which was spoken somewhere in the middle of Europe (Ukraine possibly), definitely not near any sea.
Apparently not everybody, because this thread's main point is to prove it could be otherwise, isn't it?

I do have a soft spot in my 80s-loving heart for Van Halen, though.
I’m probably repeating myself here, but some theorize that the word “fuck” has the same protoindoeuropean origin as the words “foe”, “fey”, and “fell” (in the old sense=”evil”) and meant something like “drop dead” (”fuck you”).
The sexual stuff came later, according to this suppostion.

 Why does Indian music (from India) seem to sound off-key? : Music information from Answerbag   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Eastern music is based on a different palette (to mix metaphors) made up of different collections of notes organized not by ordered blocks but by meticulous melodies and rules (in the middle east "maqams").
If you're used to one or the other the new music sounds as alien and exotic as speech from a different language family from most western tongues (protoindoeuropean).

 Luc Steels, Frederic Kaplan, - 1998 - Spontaneous Lexicon Change
But it is well­established that language also changes spontaneously based on an internal dynam­ ics (Labov, 1994).
For example, many sound changes, like from /b/ to /p/, /d/ to /t/, and /g/ to /k/, which took place in the evolution from proto­Indo­European to Modern Germanic languages, do not have an external motivation.
Neither do many shifts in the expression of meanings.

I can point you to degreed linguists (not translators or people who speak several languages, but language scientists) who say the 'Protoworld' and 'Nostratic' language theories cannot be proven.

And the European legends set him to reinventing the legends behind the legends, so to speak - or mythology before idolatry.
And he did so because he believed there was as much truth to European legends as to the story "One day a sheep was grazing on the field..." (the English translation of the first sentence in the protoindoeuropean story).
And that he along with the other Inklings was as likely to find it as philologists to find how our ancestors or the ancestors of the people they got their language from pronounced that story.
