    Nuoska sounds like Latin nix.
    Compare 'nuoska' to PIE *sneigwh.

    I would not be surprised. It is not limited to this one case. As you know, I am sure. For instance. From a previous post:

    Indo-European
    “Middle English sowe, from Old English sugu, from Proto-Germanic *sugō (compare West Frisian sûch, Dutch zeug, Low German Söög, Swedish sugga), from Proto-Indo-European *suh₂kéh₂ (compare Welsh hwch ‘pig’, Sanskrit सूकर (sūkará, “swine, boar”)), from *suh₂- ‘pig’ (compare German Sau, Latin sūs, Tocharian B suwo, Ancient Greek ὗς (hỹs), Albanian thi, Avestan ‘boar’).”

    Sumerian
    šaḫ: domestic pig

    “h is pronounced like ch in German Buch or Scottish loch, and š is pronounced like sh in dash.”

    Akkadian (Old/Standard Babylonian)
    ḫuzīru : a pig , a hog , a swine

    Sureth (Assyrian-Aramaic vernacular)
    xzura : pig

    See the note above, for Sumerian “h,” for an explanation of the proper pronunciation of the letter “x,” in Sureth "xzura."

    Finns take their snow seriously

    I still think it sounds more like Latin nix than the PIE word for snow.

    Yes, pay attention to "earth" in German (erd), Arabic (ard) and Swedish (jord) as an example. Although this could be the Semitic substratum Hweinlant is talking about rather than Nostratic.

    Anyway, let's get back to topic, which is similarities between Armeno-Greco-Aryan and Albano-Germanic.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Not substrata but superstrata. Thats add-on layer by minor elite dominance. Story goes like this: Phoenicians/Punics sailed northwards, following the Atlantic fringe and setted up small trading outposts. Finally they got to Northsea and setted their trading settlements there aswell. Here they came into contact with western branch of early proto-Germanics.

    These are Semitic loans into proto-Germanic according to Vennemann.
