Transcript of Indo-European
What does indo-european mean?
A large widespread family of languages,the surviving branches of which include Italic, Slavic, Baltic, Hellenic, Celtic, Germanic, and Indo-Iranian, spoken by about half the world's population: English, Spanish, German, Latin, Greek, Russian, Albanian, Lithuanian, Armenian, Persian, Hindi, and Hittite are all Indo-European languages.
Indo-european started by the Aryans. Many people also believe that the Aryan language had to do with the start of the Indo-European language. The Aryans were not a race or ethnic group. They all spoke different languages but similar. Many modern Indian languages, like Hindi, are part of the Indo-European family.
The Indo-European people lived in central Asia but later started to migrate to other places. Many of them moved south to Iran or west to Europe, and the Aryans moved to India. The people hunted and found ways to gather food for their families and themselves. The Aryans were a huge help to the Indo-European people.
