El etrusco y el basco _no_ son indeoeuropeos.

Y se sabe muy poquito del etrusco.  El emperador romano Claudio
escribió una obra de 20 "libros" sobre la lengua, pero la obra fue
perdida.  Larissa Bonfante (capitulo en "Reading the Past: Ancient
Writing from cuneiform to the Alphabet) escribe que "No literature
survives:  we have no narrative texts, no history, poetry or drama.
...the 13,000
EEtruscan instriptions that have come down to us are mostly short:
dedications or epitaphs, with names, human and divine, titles and a few
common nouns, numbers and verbs."

"Etruscan cannot be interpreted through any kind of 'etymological'
method which claims connections, for example, with Albanian
and Basque, Hebrew, Turkish, etc.  Such connections are
based on accidental, superficial resemblances with other
languages or language families, not on any real relationship.  As
a language, Etruscan is in fact isolated."

Desculpen el inglés (y mi espanhol).
