  Bambooweb: Basque language
The ancestors of Basques are among the ancient inhabitants of Europe, and their origins are still unknown as are the origins of their language itself.
Basque has some grammatical forms unusual in Europe, such as the ergative case, which forces the addition of a -k to the subject when it has a transitive verb.
Basque distinguishes between laminal sibilants (z, tz) where friction occurs across the blade of the tongue (like in a French or English s), and apical sibilants (s, ts) where friction occurs at the tip of the tongue (like in a Castilian s).

  Encyclopedia: Basque language
Basque (native name: Euskara) is the language spoken by the Basque people who inhabit the Pyrenees in north Spain and the adjoining area of south-western France.
Basques also make up sizable parts of the population in what is known as the Northern Basque Country in France and the autonomous community of Navarre in Spain.
However, Basque was explicitly recognized in some areas, as the local charter of the Basque-colonized Ojacastro valley (now in Rioja) allowed the inhabitants to use Basque in legal processes in the 13th and 14th centuries.

She provides an account of the modal uses of the Im­perfect in main clauses based on the claim that past tense may not be interpreted inside the proposition where it superficially occurs.
By introducing the systematic use of fire to extract resources from forests and other wild lands (e.g., increase game, create farmland), by introducing exotic plants or producing fire-adapted flora, and by depleting those animals which lived on the wild biomass, we have produced a landscape adapted to wild fire which never existed before.
This process of human produced events, "anthropogenic events" is the term often used, has converged into a self-perpetuating cycle where wild fire has become a chronic seasonal event, with periodic fires of tremendous damage which are extended and complicated by the growth of suburbs of cities into formerly rural and wild areas.
