This is the main category of the Proto-Basque language, represented in Wiktionary by the code euq-pro. It is the reconstructed ancestor of all Vasconic languages, written in Latin script.[edit details]
Proto-Basque is a hypothetical language. Words and roots in Proto-Basque are not directly attested in any written works, but have been reconstructed through the comparative method, which finds regular similarities between languages that cannot be explained by coincidence or word-borrowing, and extrapolates ancient forms from these similarities.
According to our criteria for inclusion, Proto-Basque should not be present in entries in the main namespace, but may be added to the Appendix: namespace.
