I need to identify languages by using a group of words. I'm searching, but it's going slow. There are 16 and all but 3 of the languages are of indo-european origins (if you need a few more words for each, i have them, and i need to figure out which are not indo-european). In parenthesis are my guesses so far, if i've made any. 1. Padre, soy, lobo, estralla, cinco (spanish) 2. isa, olen, susi, tahti, viisi (finnish) 3. tas, ov, blyth, steren, pymp 4. pater, eimi, lykos, aster, pente 5. Pere, suis, loup, etoile, cinq (french) 6. patri, sugnu, lupu, stidda, cincu 7. faeder, eam, wulf, steorra, fif (anglo-saxon?) 8. padre, sono, lupo, stella, cinque (italian) 9. pitar, asmi, vrkah, taaraka, panca (sanskrit) 10. fathir, em, ulfr, stjarna, fimm 11. fadar, im, wolfs, starna, fimf 12. pater, sum, lupus, stella, quinque (portugese) 13. Vater, bin, Wolf, Stern, funf 14. matua, na, N/A, whtu, rima 15. tad, wyf, blaidd, seren, pum 16. atar, nan, narmo, elen, lempe There are some accents that i left out, due to time constraints. Hopefully its enough. I have until thursday! Any help will be appreciated. -doug-
