Obviously what was meant was the very large majority of European languages of the Indo-European group...Patrick Andries wrote:That European languages emerged from Sanskrit ? I very much doubt it. That they share a common reconstructed ancestor (Proto-indo-european), yes. And that Vedic Sanskrit is close to this reconstructed ancestor, yes. But I would say this is different than saying that European languages descend from Sanskrit.Romany is spoken in Europe and hence may be regarded as a European language.
I don't know I was just quoting... ;-) Aren't we nitpicking ?(What is a European language, anyway? Afrikaans? Esperanto?)
