       Edo Nyland (2001) has proposed the existence of a Universal Language in a book Linguistic Archaeology:  An Introduction.  Trafford Publ.  541 p.  In this book Nyland revealed the recovery of stone-age and medieval history by analysis of language.  In the process of gathering data he became convinced that a universal language had existed in the Neolithic and that virtually all advanced languages of today derived directly from this early language.  This has led to the development of several hypotheses and a theory of the origin of languages (see Theory).


       Analyzing the place names of the Odyssey, Nyland made the interesting discovery that names and words may be interpreted as a shorthand, having been agglutinated from core words of the Basque language. He identified a subset of the Basque language, the core words of which have come through since 3,000 B.C. in almost unchanged form, as the nearest equivalent of the Neolithic universal language that has been spoken in Europe and the Near East before speech became confused in Babylon.


       Applying his new decoding method to names and words from many other language families, he arrived at the startling conclusion that words of ancient languages like Sanskrit and Sumerian as well as of modern European languages like English, Spanish or German, can be decoded by the same method into Basque sentences revealing hidden meaning. This discovery supports the hypothesis of monogenesis of languages, according to Genesis 11.1: " the whole earth had one language..."


       As ancient words and names have come with meanings attached to them which cannot be substantiated by the hidden meaning decoded from them, a great deal of falsified or censored history can be recovered, revealing that many languages have been invented from the universal language, according to Genesis 11.7: "...come, let us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
