On the Position of Hittite among the Indo-European Languages * E. H. Sturtevant * Language, Vol. 2, No. 1 (Mar., 1926), pp. 25-34 * Published by: Linguistic Society of America
Some selections from this:
"The centum-languages known when Brugmann wrote all lie in the western part of Indo-European terrain and the satem-languages in the eastern part, except for Albanian and Messapian, which have usually been overlooked."
two pages later:
"The Messapian of southern Italy is an ofshoot of Illyrian, and Albanian is probably descended from Illyrian. Since both Messapian and Albanian are without a trace of labialization of velars, it is probable that Venetic ke represents the regular treatment of the velars in that language. At any rate the Veneto-Illyrian language go far toward invalidating the centum-satem-hypothesis in another way. While Venetic retains palatal stops, Albanian and Messapian treat those sounds in the manner of the satem-language."
the next page:
"In a third respect the Veneto-Illyrian languages make difficulty for the hypothesis. Albanian and Messapian indicate that southern Illyrian was a satem-language, and this with thracian must have completely separated Greek from other centum-languages.

Interestingly enough, I always used to think that the Albanian word for father, At or Jat, was a diminutive of the IE pater, but it seems to actually be related to Baltic, Slavic, Hittite and Luwian forms of the said word, which in older times was "attas"

Rusyn: @leandros nikon Vatra is "fire" in Serbian, and Pyrros is Greek equvialent of that name. Also Pyrros was used to be known as Kralj Vatra in his older accounts hence Admin calls him both ways.
