    “Thus, the three-way IE reconstructed voiced ~ voiceless ~ voiced aspirated system of obstruents has been reduced, as in many IE dialects, to a double opposition: voiced ~ voiceless; and the outcomes of the three dorsal series suggest that Albanian, like Luwian, may have originally retained this three-way opposition intact and therefore is neither centum nor satem, despite the clear satem-like outcome of its palatal dorsals in most instances.

    The evidence for this is the palatalization of original PIE labiovelars, but not plain velars, before front vowels.”

    " Not one of the peoples with whom we have to deal in this book has such a claim to the epithet “Balkan,” as the Dardanians. Not only because their territory lay in the heart of the Balkans, but also because they appear as the most stable and most conservative ethnic element in the area where everything was exposed to constant change, and also because they, with their roots in the distant pre-Homeric age, and living on the frontiers of the Illyrian and Thracian worlds, retained their individuality and, alone among the peoples of that region, succeeded in maintaining themselves as an ethnic unity even when they were militarily and politically subjugated by the Roman arms.

    I can imagine that this has already been posted here:

    “And, furthermore, that some people have a sex life and others don’t just because some are more attractive than others. I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq

    Linguist E. Hamp argued that the Greek language originated in the Caucasus due to its Indo-Iranian and Armenian affinities. While Albanian shares a large number of unique words only with Greek, it has negligible relations with Indo-Iranian & Armenian suggesting different origins.
