The better comparison would be with the proto-Slavic language for which we don't have many attestations but it's mostly reconstructed.
As a Slavic speaker I can understand many of the Thracian words including some of the most basic ones, such as the word for the Earth.
As I already explained, Baltic and the Slavic are languages diverging from the samo proto language.
This is my last post on this topic and will close the thread if you people continue the off-topic talk. Duridanov makes his comparison of Thracian with modern languages, that is the point. The Baltic languages he compares are also modern languages.
