Abstract:In 1786, Sir William Jones announced that through the comparison of cognates (meaning pairs/sets of words descended from a common ancestor) he had discovered that Sanskrit was related to Greek and Latin, giving rise to the science of linguistics in its present form. Since that time, linguists have attempted to develop a family tree of languages with the branch labeled "Indo-European" as the ancestor of present day English. Although many linguists trace Indo European languages to Kurgan horsemen living in the South of Russia about 4,000 B.C., other theories suggest that a proto-Indo-European tongue was spoken in Anatolia before 6,000 B.C. by Neolithic farmers. This paper investigates data from fields as diverse as evolutionary biology, archaeology, and geology. The evidence does not support the hypothesis that Indo-European was spread from Anatolia by farmers but indicates that Indo-European was most likely spread by people from the South of Russia with a mixed farming and pastoral economy.
