The Ancestral Homeland of the Carriers of the Proto-Indo-European Language: Mathematical Models for the Study of Linguistic Information

The Ancestral Homeland of the Carriers of the Proto-Indo-European Language: Mathematical Models... Abstract—This paper presents the results of theoretical analysis and computer modeling, which suggest that two main linguistic populations characterized today as the division of Indo-European languages into the so-called “satem-centum” language ranges could emerge in the model Indo-European language community approximately 3500–4000 years ago. The results of computer modeling show that among the two main hypotheses of the formation of the Proto-Indo-Europeans (the Anatolian and Kurgan hypotheses), the latter corresponds to the time estimates we obtained to a greater extent. Some of the problems of the search for the ancestral homeland of the peoples that were carriers of the Proto-Indo-European language are analyzed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Automatic Documentation and Mathematical Linguistics Springer Journals
