Abstract

Basque—or euskara, in Basque—, known as ‘Lingua Navarrorum’ in Latin because it was the popular language in the Kingdom of Navarre, is the only surviving pre-Indo-European language in western Europe. It is considered an isolated language, with no known connections with other languages other than ancient Aquitanian. Both the origin of the language and its relationship with other languages continue to be controversial and of interest for many researchers.
