Midas is this substatum of non Indo-European words in modern Greek related to any known language?
There's no living language or group that contains reminiscent words to those non-IE words in ancient or modern Greek.

Keep in mind that pre-Greek was a language(s) that belongs to one generation before most current language groups. We're talking about a neolithic language here.

Sort of...The difference is that Egyptian has related languages, while Sumerian does not.

Who are the Pelagians?:eek:
pelasgians where considered sea people by some and it's not far from truth because in albanian pellg means deep sea also in italian pellgo but using my logice word pelasgian can be read as this if we add an S and divide the name in two pices spela meaning (shpella) in albanian cave and gigant meaning giants translation cave people, cave man etc..

Why do these huge discrepancies between actual books devoted to the historical and new archaeological discoveries? Because in general we humans have a tendency to be dogmatic, too lazy to try to change some attitudes. We refuse to believe that the current civilization existed before another civilization that was able to shine through its grandeur and conquests. And currently no traces of civilization are scattered all over the earth, but at the present time only studied simple quirks and not approved as historical realities.

Marija Gimbutas, eminent professor of the University of California at Los Angeles, where the preface of her book forces us to thinking respectful reverence:'' Territory of Romania is the hearth of what we called Old Europe, a cultural entity between 6500-3500 BC. Hr

Traces and evidence of their existence and current appear in Ukraine, Moldova, Hungary and southern Slovakia, the whole Balkans including Greece and neighboring islands, coasts of Asia Minor, Italy and Southern France, Mediterranean coast of Spain.

Archaeological inventories reveal their are huge, since vestiges of peaceful settlements, fortresses and defensive walls, shrines and objects, objects of work and struggle, unrivaled artwork, megalithic construction. But the most important thing left to them is the language, that language-specific single old European-language pre-latine alleged proto-latine. It also became evident that this ancient European civilization precedes the Sumerian few millennia . These data make it impossible assumption that warlike and violent Sumerian civilization would have been the earliest of the glob.

In Old Europe were not prepared fortifications or weapons to fight . Absence or representations regarding the warrior society led by men reflects a social structure in which women had the lead role in both men and women equally for the benefit of working in common. It was a real harmony in full agreement with the creative energies of nature.

You like to come to recognize the realities and way of life of Neolithic and copper hull meant more than sowing , harvesting , milling and baking bread or raising houses ... '' . And to be more specific words fill Marija Gimbutas , the creed of life of historian Nicolae Densuşianu mitologist and linked to the existence Pelasgian people : '' ... ( Pelasgians ) were the first who gathered in society families and tribes scattered throughout the caves , mountains and forests, founded villages and towns formed the first states gave their subjects laws and introduced more gentle way of life . ... For the Greek people , '' Pelasgians were the oldest people on earth '' .

Their race seemed so archaic , so superior in concept, strong in will and deed , so noble morals that traditions and poems greek attributed all Pelasgians epithet - diol - divine , they in truth they deserved the physical and moral gifts

I have to give right of Mircea Eliade when he says so categorically that:'' There are some books that require both long maturation, that are aging and outdated by science even before the occurrence.

To make a story short and separate facts from fiction.
The sea concept is a loanword from Greek 'pelagos'.

Online Etymology Dictionary

The original word for sea in Albanian is 'det', from proto-Albanian *deubeta 'depth' in turn from proto-Indo-European *dheub 'deep'.

The last is from Brills Albanian Etymological Dictionary.

Last but not least, I doubt Pelasgians were Indo-Europeans, since no Indo-European language (Greek, Albanian or Anatolian IE) was spoken by the neolithic natives. All those languages came much later to the region.
