  Venetic language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Venetic is an extinct Indo-European language that was spoken in ancient times in the Veneto region of Italy, between the Po River delta and the southern fringe of the Alps; and probably also in parts of Slovenia.
Venetic should not be confused with Venetian, a Romance language presently spoken in the same general region.
Venetic may also have been related to the Illyrian languages language once spoken in the westen Balkans, though the theory that Illyrian and Venetic were closely related is debated by current scholarship.

 Illyrian languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A grouping of Illyrian with the Thracian and Dacian language in a "Thraco-Illyrian" group or branch---an idea popular in the first half of the 20th century---is now generally rejected due to a lack of sustaining evidence, and due to what may be evidence to the contrary.
The identification of Illyrian as a centum language is widely but not unanimously accepted, although it is generally admitted that from what remains of the language, centum examples appear to greatly outnumber satem examples.
The Ancient Greek language (and also the Ancient Macedonian language) would have become an important external influence on Illyrian-speakers who occupied lands adjacent to ancient Greeks and Ancient Macedonians, and this is indicated by the adoption of Greek names by prominent Illyrians (Cleitus, Glaukias) in the south.

Venetic was rather archaic in phonetics; its vowels could be either long or short, numerous diphthongs existed.
Four types of conjugation were used in Venetic, obviously all tenses merged into two: the present and the past (with maybe sigmatic aorist forms).
Venetic is believed to be a single group very close to Italic, Illyrian and Celtic.

 Ancient Scripts: Venetic
The Venetics were a people that inhabited the northern coast of the Adriatic Sea during the Iron Age, roughly from 1000 BCE until domination by the Roman Empire.
Venetic was usually written from right to left, but it could also be written from left to right.
The Venetics were absorbed by the Roman Empire, and the Venetic script ceased to be used by the 1st century BCE.

The Venets were since then a maritime population and they were reknown for their navigational skills, a characteristic that perhaps draws a link between the Venets of the Adriatic to the Celtic population in Brittany (who defeated by Caesar had to disclose the routes to the British Isles).
Regarding religion of the Venets in the Adriatic it is documented that they worshiped the goddess Reitia, who is represented with an egg and with a a key on her hand.
According to some recent thesis, the centurization (the method of dividing arable land) was invented by the Venets, and perhaps it was the outcome of ancient methods based on the measurement of places and land based on celestial reference points.

Venetic had about six or even seven noun cases, nouns known to us are originated from Indo-European o-, â-, r-, n-, i-stems.
Venetic words are wriiten only in some inscriptions and are quite scarce to judge about the lexical composition of Venetic.

 RAIXE VENETE
The history of Venetic, Illyrian, and Messapic tribes began much earlier, when they arrived on the Balkan peninsula and later (Messapics) crossed the Adriatic and appeared in Italy.
But while we can judge about this early period of their history only by archaeological materials or by ancient authors, since the 6th century BC these peoples started leaving inscriptions for us to be sure that they existed and played a certain part in the Indo-European Chronology.
Venetic speakers are sometimes identified as Italics or Illyrians, but evidently they were none of them, though closely related to these two groups.

The chief Venetic settlement was Este (later the Roman colony of Ateste), which was also the cult centre of their important divinity Reitia, possibly a goddess of childbirth.
The horses bred in Venetia were famous in the Greek world, and there was other commerce both with Greek lands and with the Alps and northern Europe, including some control of the amber route from the Baltic.

 Slovenia - view from outside
The internal conditions of the time are unknown; however, we have some understanding of the extraordinary influence of the invasion and domination of a warring people from the area of the Caucasus in the Late Stone Age (Neolithic) between 3000 and 2000 B.C. Their Battle-Axe culture imposed itself on the predominantly agricultural indigenous peoples.
The most authentic components of the ancient Venetic language have been preserved by the Slovenes who are still living in the region of the Este culture.
Although the Venetic inscriptions are more than 2000 years removed from contemporary Slovene, the similarities between the two languages are such that these important cultural monuments can still be understood.

 Uniqueness in the heart of Europe - Venetic script 2.
A number of archaeological discoveries give strong evidence that Este was an important centre of Venetic culture in 7th to 4th century BC, with a great shrine to the god (or goddess) Reitia and more importantly, a school for scribes.
Matej Bor, Slovenian poet and linguist had studied the problem of the Venetic script over a number of years.  In contrast to the prevailing opinion, he believed in the Slavic origin of the Venetic language (rather than Italic), He found enough indicators to warrant an investigation based on this premise.
He had for some time held that Venetic language was Slavic, or even Slovenian in origin and set about solving the ancient puzzle based on that premise.

However, that the languages of other Slavic nations may also have preserved other equally or nearly as ancient elements of the original proto-Slavic language in no way contradicts or even affects the Veneti theory as presented by Polish and Slovenian researchers.

 Slovenes, a Contrasting View of Their Origin
This method, he claims, is the only legitimate tool to provide us with the definitive answer as to whether or not the Slovene and Venetic languages are related.
To utilize the method, the linguist must count the consonants, vowels, and words of the two languages; the resulting percentage of sameness and similarity are tabulated to prove the degree of relatedness.
There is more than one way of making a useful contribution to the study of the problem under consideration, and to insist that the research into the Venetic language must start with the comparative method is very much like putting the cart before the horse.

The Venetic people entered Europe in 13th century BC, and spread in a great wave of migration from the Baltic Sea down through central Europe and the Apennine Peninsula almost as far as Sicily, establishing a number of flourishing cultures, among them Este in norther Italy
The Slovenian linguist concluded that they were fragments or chapters on Venetic phonology and morphology — the remnants of a fairly sophisticated teaching tool, demonstrating an unexpected level of understanding of language structures.
A very important conclusion can now be made regarding the Venetic language: it was Old Slavic or more precisely, proto-Slovenian, a precursor of the modern Slovenian language.

Outstanding among them, spreading their influence to regions beyond their designated areas, were the Lausatian culture in central Europe, Hallstatt culture to the south, the Etruscan culture on the Apennine Peninsula and the Este culture between the Adriatic Sea and the Alps.
After the breakthrough Bor made by unlocking the riddle of the so-called alphabet tablet ES 24, the Venetic inscriptions could be read and understood by a trained linguist of similar background.
The official historical view of the arrival of Slovenians in the 6th century AD to their present territory between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, must therefore be reconsidered.
