11/29/2003 Entry: "Why we say water and mean it"

"At last the answer in black and white, or beltz and zuri if you happen to be Basque, or noir and blanc, if you are French. You owe the words to Hittite-speaking farmers from Anatolia, who invented agriculture and spread their words as they sowed their seed, 9,500 years ago."

*snip*

For decades the focus has been on a tribe of nomad herders called the Kurgans from central Asia, who domesticated the horse 6,000 years ago and invaded Europe.
Scientists trace evolution of Indo-European languages to Hittites, by Tim Radford, The Guardian, November 27, 2003

The Hittites from Asia Minor? Not the Aryans from Central Asia? And who the hell are the Kurgans? Huh. I must have been listnening to the wrong rumors and gossip all these years.

Edit 113003: Not to torment anyone, but here's a link to Gran RD, Atkinson QD. Language-tree divergence times support the Anatolian theory of Indo-European origin. Nature 2003;426(6965):438-439 if you have access to the journal.
