Yeah, it is said Iberians settled in Sardinia.

Even their legends (or better: the Greek ones) say so: Norax, son of Geryon.

Edited to add:

"Nora" is a city in Sardinia.

And then we also have the Nuraghian culture.

And they are also related to the Corsicans.

No, as far as I learned, the Corsicans are related to the Etruscans.

But yes, at some point in time the Sardinians invaded Corsica.

Edited to add:

That invasion happened around 1200 bce.

Btw.: I don't have links. I am digging up from memory.

Ok, please tell me if I get it right: are you saying there is proof Basque sailors discovered the Americas before Columbus and his gang?

No, about the same time.

And what is your theory?

They are the descendants of Anatolian farmers who were also sailors and ruled by women.

Not online

Search Academia for Herbert Kraft, archeologist.

For those still interested: we are going WAY off topic.

Sorry.

Edited to add:

This thread is, or is supposed to be, about  a Semitic influence on the proto-Germanic language.

There is none.

All I saw was a lot of "mass comparison". You can do that with Celtic and Japanese and find a "relationship". Morons have done just that.

I can also show you a "relationship" between Manchu and Algonquian which was thrown out there when it was discovered we have common ancestors.

But, I trying to find a post covid mechanic for our Isuzu Npr which is our log truck and was told we our losing our Apache logger who is headed back to Mexico because he's tired of the racism from the Trump dickwads so I'm busy and p***ed off.

Everybody else is fighting fires, so I'm in the woods come Fall.....probably with some amateur ......or with just the wife on the machine.......and I don’t have the health.

They aren't sure if it's Ligurian because some toponyms are not IE.

I know Piney doesn't like it, this suggestion that Semites may have had some linguistical influence on the Germanic languages - which English is one of - but I know his objection to this idea is based on the 19th century fantasy that the people from England, Wales and Scotland were descendants of the Lost Tribes from Israel (check the BritAm site).

Again I say: this is about language, not 'race'. I hope that much is clear by now.

Pritani " People of the forms" ie. painted people and it was a Celtic term from the proto-Celtic Kwrit (shape, form) and a ajectival suffix ani.

Yes, that is the generally accepted way of explaining the name.

But during those times many (Celtic) tribes painted themselves, and none of these got the same name.

The 'Phoenician explanation' seems quite logical to me.

Check this link I posted before:

https://www.caitlingreen.org/2015/04/thanet-tanit-and-the-phoenicians.html?m=1

and notice the concentration of Punic coins in Kent:

CarthaginianCoins-500x463.png.25341dbfe436b84979c420f5ff8ae0e4.png

It's Kent, but it's actually the former Isle of Thanet.

My problem is if they left that much of a linguistic influence. They would of left a large physical and cultural footprint. 

The Roman cultural stamp never left even after the Germanic invasion. Roman ruins and artifacts are everywhere.

The Greeks even left a physical and cultural stamp on the people and places of Northern India.

Why?

They were traders. Maybe they had no desire to mix with the locals. And, btw., according to Vennemann, they influenced the Nordic pantheon, and introduced their way of writing : the future runes.

The Turks introduced the runes.

Your right. There is only a superficial similarity. It's been now determined they have different origins.

Never heard of those pillars.

Btw., the "Rus", that's the Vikings as they were known along the Volga, may have encountered Turkish tribes.

These Turkish tribes may have got inspired by the runes the Vikings used.

But let's get back on topic.

The suggestion is that some Semitic language influenced the proto-Germanic language (see Vennemann & Mailhammer and others).

It is said a Semitic language was the 'lingua franca' in the eastern Mediterranean.

Some linguists think the Minoans spoke a Semitic language (Best, Gordon, Woudhuizen, others).

*I* think, now, that they used Semitic, the lingua franca back then, whenever they encountered a new tribe/people.

Like I, as the Dutch guy I am, use English when abroad.
