Oh, I see. I did not know they were attempting to revive the Prussian language.

As far as I know they are attempting to revive not language of one of the tribes, but generic western Baltic language that was used in Prussia in something like 18-th century.

Do you know which region of Prussia most of those West Baltic words are from?

I don't know for sure, but I doubt, that there would me many different words. At least roots of the words would be mostly the same for all tribes. They could understand each other. We know too little to be sure about that. There is still discussion going on about some tribes if they were Prussians. Mostly about Skalvians I think.

There is a revived Prussian language. Do you know what dialect of Prussian it is based off of?
There's a small dictionary of Yotvingian language (244 words) . Not reconstructed words. I can't remember how generic Prussian was reconstructed. Most likely from terms mentioned in literature and possibly toponyms.
