Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Abstract: In the 2nd millennium B.C., the Pannonici (a European Flavio population, who had written the Vinča signs) used the Flavio 16-letters VUARK alphabet (See my previous book).
Around the 1st millennium B.C., before the Celts would assimilate them, some Pannonici migrated and settled around Dzungaria, in Central Asia. They brought their rovás there, encrypted them, and spread them over a large area, in Asia.

The oldest inscription written in Pannonico VUARK has been found in Central Asia. The inscription has been dated 5th century B.C. and confirms the existence of the rovás at a much earlier date than has so far been believed. This script consists of letters, which existed already in Pannonia in an alphabet of the 14th century B.C. (see my next book) and in the earliest Etruscan and Greek alphabets. The script contains characters and ligatures that would later be used in Southern Chinese and other Asiatic scripts.

The alphabet research confirms that the Pannonici left Europe at the beginning of the 1st millennium B.C., settled in Central Asia, and returned in Europe in the 9th century B.C.. A collection of old and "new" evidence from anthropologists, linguists, geneticists, historians, and archaeologists explains how the Pannonici became Pazyryki and finally Magyars. Most of the "new" evidence is not even new. It is simply old evidence that nobody had ever connected, or had any interest in connecting it, to the Hungarian history...or "they" had connected it to the "Aryans"!

The research has been made possible by the recent easier accessibility of Russian and Chinese sources.
