World Language Tree Sanskrit At The Top

I am providing the world Langauge Tree below.

Note that Sanskrit heads the list on the Right.

It may be noted that the other language groups headed by Anatolian ,followed by Hitti and others do have Tamil and Sanskrit Roots.

I shall be posting on this in detail.

My researches show that Tamil and Sanskrit head the world language groups at the top.

In other words world languages have their origins in Tamil, Sanskrit and a combination of both.

I have posted that Tamil influenced Hitti language.


‘The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists; there is a similar reason, though not quite so forcible, for supposing that both the Gothic and the Celtic, though blended with a very different idiom, had the same origin with the Sanskrit; and the old Persian might be added to the same family, if this were the place for discussing any question concerning the antiquity of Persia. (Fortson, p. 9)

Sanskrit (/ˈsænskrɪt/; संस्कृतम् saṃskṛtam [səmskr̩t̪əm], originally संस्कृता वाक् saṃskṛtā vāk, “refined speech”) is the primary liturgical language of Hinduism, a philosophical language in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, and a literary language that was in use as alingua franca in the Indian cultural zone. It is a standardised dialect of Old Indo-Aryan language, originating as Vedic Sanskrit and tracing its linguistic ancestry back to Proto-Indo-Iranian and Proto-Indo-European.

Branches are in order of first attestation; those to the left are Centum, those to the right are Satem.

Languages in red are extinct.

White labels indicate categories / un-attested proto-languages.

* I have deliberately left informing that Tamil ahs not been mentioned in this tree, hoping that some one will point it.

Within ten minutes, a FacebBook reader has noticed it.

Am happy that my posts ae being read carefully.

I shall be posting on the antiquiy of Tamil and its status,on par with Sanskrit.

And on Telugu and Kannada which are also ancient, with more affinity to Sanskrit.

  1. Thanks for sharing this nice post, if anyone wants to know more about one of the most divine languages of the world “Sanskrit”, then a well experienced Sanskrit Home Tutor will surely help you to increase your knowledge about Sanskrit. For more details, you can also visit:


  2. Was surprised that kannada ,Tamil , Telugu was left out but found the answer at last all of the above languages are influenced from Sanskrit after there excitence but there is something called old kannada and old Tamil which are not influenced from any languages hence any one of kannada or Tamil would be the oldest the evidences for it is the discovery of there first inscriptions which is dated 3000 years with a difference of 250 years between Tamil and kannada hence it is difficult to say which is old
    But one among Tamil and kannada is old


  3. it is incomplete list of language family tree, where original has many roots. it proves Sanskrit is part of Indo-Iranian family of language, nothing to do with India subcontinent language like Dravidian

    there are several group of language family identified Indo-European is one of them,

    the author of this article neither know other language family nor linguistic


      1. Your title itself wrong and misleading, it is talking about Indo-European language tree not about world language tree. world language has many tree, Indo-European is one of branch


    1. Kindly check my articles by googling Sanskrit Tamil +ramanan50 where you shall find about Sanskrit and Tamil.Also Google Million year old Kannada +ramanan50, you shall get some information on Kannada.Regds.


  4. How do you come up with sweeping statements like million years old? There is neither archaeological or corroborated linguistic evidence of any language being that old. Also, why you seem to always say Tamil and include Kannada in the statement to appease. There is no evidence of which came first. The only thing that we know is Tamil and Kannada are related languages and Sanskrit influenced Kannada to a greater extent than Tamil. This is clear from linguistic and archaeological evidence. I think it would be prudent to provide solid evidence for sweeping statements.


    1. That I do not make sweeoing statements will becomevevident if onecreads all my articles. Kindlyl refer all articles filed under Hinduism category.Also check articles about Million year old site belonging to advanced Tamil civilisation.This site is in Chennai.Another one about Hinduism in Jwalapuram near Kurnool.Yet another relating to Kannada can be found in Karnataka. As I have stated in ny About page my articles are meant to bring forth the suppressed History of India.And my articles explore this area and the information is uodated periodically and relevant archeligical evidence may be found in my posts and links I have provided.Regds.


      1. The Chennai site mentioned (i.e., Pallavaram) is one of earliest stone tool site and it was advanced at that time along with African sites (like Kenya) for a Stone Age civilisation. This is clearly not advanced by modern standards like village, town or cities and appears hunter-gatherer type population. Going by your logic African languages should be advanced as they are older and should be mother of all languages and civilisation. Can you clearly define what is advanced in your article?


  5. Though I was surprised not seeing Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, once I read the article completely, I understood your intentions and would wait for your status of the same.


    1. Please check my articles on Thiruvannamalai ,Thirupati ,Tamil sites age.You shall find more information from sources more authentic and updated


    1. Yes. I have talked about this in the post. Please check my post Tamil occupies a place along with Sanskrit as world language and Kannada Million years Old? Regds.
