Indo-European linguistics

The Welsh word "mwyalchen" (blackbird) comes from proto-indo-european.

Pronunciation: muɨˈalxɛn

Etymology: From *moialx, from Proto-Brythonic *mijalx (compare Cornish molgh ‘thrush’, Breton moualc'h), from Proto-Celtic *mesal-(s)kā, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂mes-l- (compare Latin merula, Icelandic smyrill ‘merlin’).

Plural: mwyeilch

I have 200 more examples, so if you have any questions, just ask.

This is what I was hoping for, confirmation of Dr. Jones' theory from a non-Welsh source.

[Am I correct that you are a non-Welsh source?  ]
