    Phelasgians are surely the inventors of the Greek alphabet , and they surely get it from Lebanese or Anatolian coasts (via Phoenician traders). Everything which is Greek is Phelasgian now

    Haha not quite

    But I can surely co-ope with the thought that they took many things from them! Wouldn't surprise me. Look at the albanians/Turks taking the serb alphabet and adapting it!

    Some wants to link it with the Lemnos Stele.

    Yeah it seems like Greece/south Balkans and west Anatolia spoke related languages and were probably populated by people that were ethnically related. This language family spread to central Italy because of the migrations of the Etruscans to that region. The Hattians of central Anatolia spoke a language that was related to those of the Caucasus. Ethnically they were probably related to those people as well.

    I may have misunderstood Maniot's English translation of a quote from Herodotus on Pelasgians, but it seemed to imply the Pelasgians were Greeks who separated from the main Greek population and went their own way until reunited by the later movements of Hellenes into Greece. In other words, the Pelasgians just got to Greece before the rest of the Greeks. I may be wrong in my interpretation.

    IMHO, I have no evidence for or against, I consider the Pelasgians to me the inhabitants of Greece prior to the entry of I.E speaking Hellenes, and who were subjugated and absorbed by the conquerors. The Etruscans could have belonged to those people.

    Probably ancestors of Etruscans. I think they were Aryans.

    Very amazing to know that the Pelasgians might have not been Greek but others still suggesting that they could of possibly been Greek and another thing is that their language is not classified.

    No but they have the Ш, Ђ, Ж, Ћ, Ч, letters which are of serb and slav origin

    Hmm Graeme it wouldn't be the first time a 'rekon' squad group of the main peoples have went before. The serbs did the same in Anatolia and Thessaloniki.

    Yeah the Pelasgian language is unattested so far, there are sosme serious contenders like that off a common aegean language. But if it is so we gotta know who the aegeans were. Could they have been the sea peoples??
    The Sea Peoples is the term used for a confederacy of seafaring raiders of the second millennium BC who sailed into the eastern Mediterranean, caused political unrest, and attempted to enter or control Egyptian territory during the late 19th dynasty and especially during Year 8 of Ramesses III of the 20th Dynasty.[1] The Egyptian Pharaoh Merneptah explicitly refers to them by the term "the foreign-countries (or 'peoples'[2]) of the sea" (Egyptian n3 ḫ3t.w n p3 ym[3][4]) in his Great Karnak Inscription.[5] Although some scholars believe that they invaded Cyprus, Hatti and the Levant, this hypothesis is disputed.[6]

    What do you think of this??

    They were working out their identity and couldn't decide on a language until the Greeks came along

    Pelasgians probably were people located in southern Balkans and Anatolia, even in Italia, were they migrated. They are mentioned in the Iliad also. Others mentioned that the Athenians have Pelasgian ancesture.

    There are some Greek villages today called Pelasgia.
