About Lithuanian

Lithuanian - lietuvių kalba - is one of only two living Baltic languages, the other being Latvian. There used to be many more in the same family - such as Old Prussian - but they became extinct. Linguists are particularly interested in Lithuanian because it's a very old language which shares some words - like avis meaning sheep - and grammatical constructions with the classical Indian language Sanskrit. There are also a number of loanwords from neighbouring Slavic and Germanic languages, such as Polish and German.
