Searches of Sumerian Indo-European Equivalence (Latvian) where Hieroglyphic Luwian = Lutwian i.e. Latvian - LexiLine Journal 313

An interesting inquiry as to the date of publication of my comparison of Sumerian to Indo-European on the basis of Latvian resulted in the following answer:

Searches of this nature can be conducted at the WayBack Machine – the Internet Archive – at

As you can see at that source, at the following link, http://snipurl.com/azhi viz.
the materials currently starting at http://www.lexiline.com/lexiline/lexi37.htm
were first published on the Internet starting September, 2000.

Be sure to also note the sources for my lists:

The word source for Sumerian: John A. Halloran's Lexicon of Sumerian Logograms at the web domain http://www.sumerian.org and the Latvian-German historical dictionary of Latvian by
Muehlenbachs-Endzelins slowly going online at http://www.ailab.lv/mev/

The Singing Stones of the Aksai - The Carnac of the East? - LexiLine Journal 312

Who thought we would ever be citing Pravda in this day and age? We wish there were a better source.

A 09/01/2004 article in Pravda http://english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/377/14001_Stonehenge.html misleadingly entitled "Stonehenge on Don" by Galina Shefer (translation by Anna Ossipova) reports that Alexander Ludov has found rows of megaliths in the
European part of Russia in the Aksai river basin. The Aksai is a tributary of the Don River which flows into the Sea of Azov, just northeast of the Black Sea.

Shefer writes (as translated by Ossipova):
"...unlike the famous Stonehenge, this local construction consists of vertically erected massive rocks or megaliths. Long 'Menhir alleys' made of stone stretch directly from East to West."
The megaliths are of quartz and as Ludov states "do not conatain traces of limestone or any other kinds of rocks that are commonly found in our steppes."

The megaliths are located near a burial mound called "Stone" and are dated to 9000 BC - the accuracy of which dating we greatly doubt, although we do not doubt that the megaliths will be quite old.

Ludov uses the proposed dates to opine that the megalithic culture comes from the Don region - whereas we think that the megalith builders were seafarers who came up the Black Sea, the Sea of Asov, and then the Don and Aksai rivers to put up the megalithic structures for geodetic survey by astronomy.

The Aksai megalithic rows pointing East and West point in the West directly to the megalithic rows found at Carnac in France - at the same latitude.

Shefer writes (as translated by Ossipova):
"It is also noteworthy to mention that such structures all over the world are made of quartz, a special kind of stone that is capable of radiating ultrasound waves.

'Scientists were able to determine that during spring and fall equilibrium radiation of the quartz stones tends to activate. As a result, the stones begin to "sing" within the ultrasound range of the changing frequency,' tells Alexander Dmitrievich. 'Perhaps, that is the reason why quartz is used for construction of such sacred shrines."
At the Equinoxes, the Sun marks exactly the directions East and West. Now, if the stones actually also announce the Equinoxes in quartz harmonic song, THAT would be something.

More on Aksai and its relation to Carnac coming.
