Question about the 'Italic' header. It lists only Romance languages as far as I can tell, but shouldn't Italic also include languages like Oscan or Etruscan and what not? Isn't there anything known about descendants from *kʷis in those languages? 09:21, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Of course there are other Italic descendants besides Romance, it's just that we may not have editors who know them. If you know them, feel quite free to add them. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 10:02, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Etruscan is not an Indo-European language. Oscan contributions are welcome, preferably in proper script. --Ivan Štambuk 15:00, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry, I knew there were more Italic languages other than Latin/Romance languages, but I am no expert on Etruscan or Oscan. I simply looked at w:Italic_languages. I suppose there are almost no speakers of these languages except for Latin? 18:40, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

They all died out as Romans eventually conquered the rest of the Apennine peninsula. --Ivan Štambuk 19:03, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Why are there no baltic contributions such as Lithuanian koks? I looked for the translation under "what" and it doesn't exist either. Just the article.  ???? 15:01, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Because nobody has added them yet. Duh! --Ivan Štambuk 16:44, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
