12 Oldest Languages In The World Still Widely Used!

Languages spoken by billions of people across Europe and Asia are descended from an ancient tongue uttered in southern Europe at the end of the last ice age, according to research. The claim, by scientists in Britain, points to a common origin for vocabularies as varied as English and Urdu, Japanese and Itelmen, a language spoken along the north-eastern edge of Russia. The ancestral language, spoken at least 15, years ago, gave rise to seven more that formed an ancient Eurasiatic "superfamily", the researchers say. These in turn split into languages now spoken all over Eurasia, from Portugal to Siberia. Linguists have long debated the idea of an ancient Eurasiatic superfamily of languages. The idea is controversial because many words evolve too rapidly to preserve their ancestry.

It seems that academics and professionals are still not entirely sure of how old language is, but general consensus us that it has been with us since around BC. As a result of this disagreement, it is even harder to accept which is the oldest surviving language. That is, one that is still in use in our modern world. As far as written languages go, Sumerian and Egyptian seem to have the earliest writing systems and are among the earliest recorded languages, dating back to around BC. But the oldest written language that is still in actual use would probably be Chinese, which first appeared around BC… although ancient Greek also appeared in a specific written form around the same time. When we get into languages that are still in use, there are some interesting differences.

This course examines the major intellectual traditions of East Asia with an idea that intellectual movements not only reflect but also influence historical developments. It is designed to help students enhance their understanding of East Asian thoughts, history, and culture. Topics will cover the intellectual movements in China, Japan, and Korea from ancient times to the early 20th century. This course introduces students to qualitative and quantitative research methods commonly used in social sciences and humanities, including narrative research, phenomenological research, ethnographic research, case study research, correlational research, and survey research. Students are expected to identify a topic of interest of their own choosing within Contemporary Asian and Asian American Students and develop a pilot research project.

This is a list of languages arranged by the approximate dates of the oldest existing texts recording a complete sentence in the language. It does not include undeciphered scripts , though there are various claims without wide acceptance, which, if substantiated, would push backward the first attestation of certain languages. It also does not include inscriptions consisting of isolated words or names from a language. In most cases, some form of the language had already been spoken and even written considerably earlier than the dates of the earliest extant samples provided here. A written record may encode a stage of a language corresponding to an earlier time, either as a result of oral tradition , or because the earliest source is a copy of an older manuscript that was lost. An oral tradition of epic poetry may typically bridge a few centuries, and in rare cases, over a millennium.

 - Бринкерхофф посмотрел на нее осуждающе.  - Дай парню передохнуть. Ни для кого не было секретом, что Мидж Милкен недолюбливала Тревора Стратмора.

Чатрукьян некоторое время смотрел на него, лишившись дара речи, а потом бегом направился прочь из шифровалки. Стратмор повернулся и с удивлением увидел Хейла. Сьюзан поняла, в чем дело: все это время Хейл вел себя тихо, подозрительно тихо, поскольку отлично знал, что нет такой диагностики, в которой использовалась бы цепная мутация, тем более такая, которая занимала ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже восемнадцать часов. Хейл не проронил ни слова. Казалось, вспыхнувшая на его глазах перепалка абсолютно его не касается. Очевидно, Стратмор вдруг задумался:. У Сьюзан имелся на это ответ.

Thanks for visiting The Times of India

Пора было отсюда вылезать. Дернул. Никакой реакции. Он дернул шнурок в третий раз, более резко. И снова. - На маршруте двадцать семь их отсоединяют.

Беккер скорчил гримасу: что это за имя. Скорее кличка коровы, чем имя красавицы. Разве так могут назвать католичку. Должно быть, Клушар ослышался. Беккер набрал первый из трех номеров. - Servicio Social de Sevilla, - прозвучал приятный женский голос.

 Да нет же, черт возьми. И кто только распустил этот слух. Тело Колумба покоится здесь, в Испании.

Испания. Так вот почему Дэвид отложил поездку в Стоун-Мэнор. - Сегодня утром я послал за ним машину. Он сказал, что позвонит тебе перед вылетом. Прости, я думал… - Зачем вы послали его в Испанию.

Что это должно означать. Такого понятия, как шифр, не поддающийся взлому, не существует: на некоторые из них требуется больше времени, но любой шифр можно вскрыть.

Она посмотрела на него, потом на кольцо. Глаза ее увлажнились. - О, Дэвид… у меня нет слов.

Казалось, эта туша собирается что-то сказать, но не может подобрать слов. Его нижняя губа на мгновение оттопырилась, но заговорил он не. Слова, сорвавшиеся с его языка, были определенно произнесены на английском, но настолько искажены сильным немецким акцентом, что их смысл не сразу дошел до Беккера.

 Не стоит благодарности.
