Not many people compared Basque and Sumerian. And when they did, the results were very interesting to say the least.
The most interesting words to compare are the words for Sun and Bull. It is of utmost importance to compare the duo because of the religious significance of the bull cult spanning thousands of years since the early Neolithic.
For more please see: "From Lascaux caves (15000 BCE), Gobeklitepe (10000 BCE), Sumer (4000 BCE), Hatti, to Egypt, Rome, Greece, Celtic Europe: Sun and sky worship, its linguistic implications, the Bull cult and the words for Ox, Cow and Taurus. Legendary Irish figure Cú Chulainn and Sumerian divine bull Gugalanna relation also explored."
From Basque and Sumerian comparison from Iuri Mosenkis we see:
Basque uda summer
Sumerian ud ‘day, heat, summer, sun’
Basque idi means ‘ox’ and Sumerian Gud is ox. Hence the sound for sun-ox relationship holds in Basque just like in Sumerian. This is especially important because it is not a linguistic comparison solely, it is "language+mythology" vs. "language+mythology" comparison that I have been doing for the proof of Sun Language Theory. This constitues a much stronger link, in fact a definitive link, for the connection of Sumerian and Basque, if we add other word pairs that are already established by linguists such as the one I had mention above and :
Basque and Sumerian comparison from Angus J Huck which is quite sufficient by itself.
And I would like to point out to a major mistake lingusists frequently do. Let's see Basque and Sumerian comparison from E-Lingusitics. The result of the analysis by giving points to the type of sound correspondance suggests that "these languages are possibly remotely related." Here we see a better technical analysis but with one major problem.
Sumerian word for water is "a" and Basque word for water is "ur". Hence per regular linguistic rules, they listed as not-related. On the contrary, these two words are from the same language, hence genetically related. I had shown how it works in my book English was Turkish: Sumerian roots of Indo-European Languages using Sun Language Theory principle that I have established.
The shocking results of the March 2019 The genomic history of the Iberian Peninsula over the past 8000 years can now be better analyzed with the Sumerian Basque relationship.
The spread of Indo-European languages: genetic evidence, haplogroup info suggests Sumerian and Hurrian origins With special emphasis on the linguistic affiliations of Haplogroup J and R1b who migrated with J. I had shown that Sumerians came from Central Asia and the latest groundbreaking study showed that the steppe people who migrated to/invaded Iberia who were Bell Beakers with haplogroup R1b (R1b-P312), spoke a non-Indo-European language.
I am sure and certain that some Sumerians will be proven to have R1b haplogroups and possibly Q in addition to J.
