RECENT GENETIC RESEARCH AT UNIVERSIDAD COMPLUTENSE, MADRID, HAS FOUND NO SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE FOR AN ARYAN INVASION OF EUROPE. THIS INVASION IS A MYTH. WE USE MORPHOLOGY TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE INDO-EUROPEAN LANGUAGES CAME OUT OF AFRICA. THEY DERIVE FROM AN OFFSHOOT OF THE NIGER-CONGO GROUP. AGGLUTINATION GRADUALLY LEAD TO GRAMMATICAL FUSION, WITH FOSSILISATION AND LOSS OF THE PREFIXES. THE PRIMARY ELEMENTS WERE RELATIVELY INDEPENDENT MONOSYLLABLES, USED AS PREFIXES, ROOTS, INFIXES, SUFFIXES. THE INDO-EUROPEAN INVADERS WERE NOT STRANGERS, BUT WERE GENETICALLY RELATED TO THE ORIGINAL BLACK INHABITANTS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN LANDS WHO SPOKE NIGER-CONGO LANGUAGES. GENETICS AND LINGUISTICS NOW LEAD US TO THE SAME CONCLUSION. AFRO-ASIATIC FARMERS, NOT CONQUERING ARYANS, GRADUALLY OVERLAID THESE BLACK ABORIGINAL INHABITANTS, GIVING RISE TO THE OLIVE-SKINNED MEDITERRANEAN RACE. THE VARIOUS ALPHABETS, WE NOW KNOW, DERIVE FROM AN AFRICAN SYLLABARY. THE HISTORY OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN LANGUAGES IS ENSHRINED IN THEIR WRITING SYSTEMS. THE LETTERS WERE ONCE MEANINGFUL AFRICAN SIGNS USED TO CATALOGUE THE REALITY OF EARLY MAN.
