Edo Nyland's Home Page deals with Linguistic archaeology with Sanskrit as one of the languages considered for research. With five hypotheses, Edo tries to link development of many languages to the Basque spoken in Euskadi in Sahara, Africa. The Sanskrit words taken for "word-invention" process studies in vowel-consonant-vowel (VCV) manner are too stretched to suit his hypotheses. He also refers to the book by Florencio Canut de Basaldua, "Historia de la Civilizacion Indigena de Amerika" (1925).
