For scholars, paleo-Sardinian still presents many unanswered questions.This study illuminates for the first time the linguistic identity of theoriginal inhabitants of the island by means of a systematic and structuredanalysis of field names in the archaic central area of Sardinia. Through athorough comparison of the identified place name structures with respectivelexicon entries of paleo-Basque and paleo-Iberian, the author cansubstantiate his hypothesis of an immigration from the ancient Iberianpeninsula to Sardinia dating back to the Mesolithic period and the entireNeolithic period.
