 Indo-Uralic languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Indo-Uralic is a hypothetical language family consisting of Indo-European and Uralic (and maybe further related languages).
The most common argument in favour of such a relationship is based on seemingly common elements of morphology, such as the pronominal roots *m- (first person) and *t- (second person), or the accusative case ending in *-m.
One problem in the research is that often it is assumed that similar words in Uralic and Indo-European languages are loans from IE to Uralic, even if this is not chronologically possible.

The widespread use of separate subjective and objective conjugations among the Uralic languages (as in Mordvin, Ugric, and Samoyedic) are the result of an original system for singling out the subject or object for emphasis (focus), and not simply a device for object-verb agreement (similar to subject agreement).

 Possible Language Shifts in the Uralic Language Group
I am convinced that Uralic languages do not descend from one, more or less unitary proto-language, spoken about 8,000–4,000 years ago in the Uralic proto-home in West Siberia, South Urals or in the Volga area from where the speakers of that proto-language began to spread out, primarily westward, just as the traditional Uralicists usually suppose.
The language shift is testified by the Paleosiberian substratum in Samoyed languages.
Accordingly, it may be concluded that whichever the language – a Uralic or non-Uralic –, brought behind the ice field by the Lapps’ ancestors, it certainly preserved well under the conditions of isolation.
