Etruscan

Post by Anthony Appleyard » Sun Aug 12, 2018 8:51 pm

With apology for likely going off-topic (as Etruscan seems to be non-Indo-European), but is there a web group anywhere that discusses the Etruscan language?

I've not run into one myself. Did you actually find one, Anthony?

I had been wondering where the Greek place "cases" ending in -thi and -then came from :: it seems that Etruscan also has a locative case ending in -thi.

(Turkish has place cases ending in -da and -dan, but in classical times their ancestors likely lived 3 months' travel by camel away from the Greeks.)

I found a Youtube video recently, that said that in classical times the ancestors of the Turks and similar lived in and around what is now the northwest part of the modern republic of Mongolia.

I have seen an opinion the Turks were set on the move from there by the worldwide effects of the big (Volcanic Explosivity Index 6) eruption of the Ilopango volcano in El Salvador in Central America (sometime between 410 and 535 AD).
