Terms "yellow" and "gold" in Kartvelian, Basque and Greek languages

Aleksandr Bukalov

Abstract


On the basis of the analysis of terms "yellow" and "gold" in Indo-Europeanand the Ibero-Caucasian languages it is shown that proto-Kartvels and proto-Basques in V thousand B.C. were in Ciscaucasia in a close touch with Indo-Europeans. In the same place there were some Semitic tribes, penetrating through Caucasus. It explains the linguistic connections between Indo-Europeans, proto-Kartvels and Semites, noted by R.V.Gamkrelidze and V.V.Ivanov.
