Added in this diff by Slavić (talkcontribs), of which Duh (talkcontribs) is a sockpuppet of. Now removed. At least 50% of Slavić's edits are utter junk (completely made-up words). --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 21:45, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Similarity to Semitic languages[edit]

Interestingly enough, in semitic languages "knowledge"-related words are represented by root "y-d".

"vedeti" - "I verified" - in today Hebrew "yadati" - "I knew" - in today Hebrew

Perhaps, this particular root comes directly from the Proto-language :)
