Excerpt from The Language of the Yue-Chi or Indo-Scythians

I. W and subsequently fl, ii, lion. On a former occasion I remarked that this word originally hailed from some east-iranian language and was transmitted to China through the medium of the Yue-ei.l This opinion should now be modified by the formula that the word i, a or se, actually represents a Yue-ei word with the meaning lion, and that this Yue-ei word is closely related to its Iranian congeners.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Language of the Yue-Chi or Indo-Scythians The question of the nationality of the ancient Yue-ei is still unsettled. It is known that klaproth first classified them with Tibetans, but subsequently became converted to the theory of their indo-european origin, identifying them with the Goths.l The pan-turks who have done so much mischief to the history of Central Asia did not fail to claim the Yue-ei as their property.2 This speculation is exploded not only by the very remains of the Yue-ci language itself, but also by the formal statement of the Chinese annalists to the effect that the Yue-ci were different from the Hiun-nu; they belonged to the group of Hu, that is, Iranians.3 Most writers on the Yue-ci (and there is a goodly number of them) did not commit themselves to any opinion as to the ethnical position of the tribe.4 Nationality is based on language: I propose to examine the few remains of the ancient Yue-ci language (that is, in times prior to the foundation of the indo-scythian empire) preserved to us in the records of the Chinese and to offer some con elusions with regard to the position of their language.
