Description

Since the formulation of Indo-European theory in the 19th c., Sanskrit has been considered the language brought over by the Aryas. This raised the question after the discovery of the Harappan culture: what was the language of the Harappans? This book tries to answer this question. Since the 19th c. Sanskrit has been considered the language of the Aryas.

This book questions this formulation and after critically reviewing the evidence of the Indo-Europeanists offers an alternative, viz. that Akkadian, as the language of the Asuras, the original inhabitants of the land, is the parent of Vedic and classical Sanskrit.
