Largely because Lithuanian and Latvian (and Old Prussian) have some of the most
archaic features in modern European languages, and that should nicely
counterpoint the Sanskrit I also intend learning soon. And, who knows, I may
just wind up doing an Old PIE conlang, just for the fun of it! (You know,
rewinding a few of the proposed PIE examples (conlangs in reality, except
professional linguists don't want to admit it ;) into a combined Old PIE ;)
Good enuff!?! :-)
