Is there a single mother of all languages

Several words in different languages have the same phonetic root for words that are important. Take relationship among people for example, which is fundamental across all cultures and considered important.

You have in Sanskrit vs English (i don't have the Latin handy):

Matru - Mother
Pitru - Father
Bhrathru - Brother
Dadhitru - Daughter

These similarity in phonetics is uncanny and not a coincidence. Or is it? Or is it back to aryan? I do see common words between Tamil and Sanskrit as well.

As I said somewhere in this forum, they should stop teaching Hindi in schools and replace it with Sanskrit.

Someone who has learnt Sanskrit will not have any problems with Hindi anyway and maybe Sanskrit will ensure us a greater touch with our "Sanskriti".

Too late now. Sanskrit is not an easy language to learn.

On the contrary, Sanskrit is much easier than most languages. Like German, it has a certain set of rules and usages and hardly any exceptions. The unfamiliar may find it a tongue twister (as with any language one is not familiar with), but as those who have studied will testify, it is easier than hindi.

No.... There are simillarities between these because of these languages have roots in the same tree(Indo-slav).. and not because all of them originated from Sanskrit.

Re: Is there a single mother of all languages

the single mother of all languages is the sign language (not the sign language in use today)....sign language preceded all languages and it is the whore that gave rise to all languages

sign language? like aankh hi ko jubaan banaya gaya that still goes on today?

I did not see south indian languages like tamil in the language tree, so at least we should be looking for a common mother of with includes tamil, telugu, kannada etc before we hit even its ancestor, the sign language.

Re: Is there a single mother of all languages

On the surface it looks easy enough...

If we could get some finality on evolution versus creation, we can solve this one too.

If we choose the creation dogma, then there is a greater possibility of one language that started it all. If we go by evolution, there may not be a single mother of all these "bhashas"..
