Las dos lenguas pre indo-europeas que se mantienen vivas en Europa son el Sami y el Euskera. La Web de la revista Discovery publica un interesante reportaje sobre los lapones, en el que referencia a los vascos y su lengua en varias ocasiones. Tenemos que reconocer que, como es lógico ante un reportaje técnico de estas características,  igual es sólo es para “iniciados”, pero pensamos que el artículo tiene un gran interés para todos los entusiastas de la genética y la lingüística.

The men of the north: the Sami


On this blog I regularly get questions about the Sami (Lapp*). That’s because I often talk about Finnish genetics, have readers such as Clark who are of part-Sami origin, and, the provenance and character of the Sami speak to broader questions about the emergence of the modern European gene pool. More precisely questions about the Sami are relevant to the broader nature of the Finnic presence in Europe, and their relationship to other Baltic and northern populations. Are these people “indigenous” to Europe, or relatively newcomers (prehistoric Magyar or Turks).? These questions are prompted by the peculiarity of their languages (as well as the physical appearance of some of the Sami). With Basque they are the only living non-Indo-European European languages whose origins are prehistoric (Magyar and Turkish were arrivals within the last 1,000 years).** (sigue)
