This makes a lot of sense to connect to the Indo-Europeans, then. I have heard it is theorized the reason the Indo-Europeans were able to spread their language around was because they were the first to domesticate the horse.
Yo. Black Athena. Shove over!
Can you tell me where Hungarian fits into this tree?
Hmmm...the land of Nod, perhaps (re. Cain)?
I think 1500-2000 BC is too recent for the ancestral language from which all the Indo-European languages spring. The Anatolian languages like Hittite were probably in Asia Minor already by around 2000 and proto-Greek may have entered Greece somewhere about 2000. But if they mean Aryan in the narrower sense as the ancestor of the Indo-Iranian languages, then the 2000-1500 BC time frame may be about right.
The family tree is fantastic.
