Scattered in different territories of the data on language Galindians, as well as their peripheral allow us to more fully consider the peculiarities of the Baltic language group in ancient times, as well as reveal some of the conditions for its development and formation. But, unfortunately, no phonetic features or morphology of languages to date are not known. Yatvyazhsky language or sudavsky, sudinsky language used yatvyagami or sudinami – ancient Baltic tribes, who are first mentioned in the 2 nd century AD, Ptolemy. Yatvyagov tribe closely related to Galindo as geographically (as evidenced in the writings of Ptolemy and Doesburg), and historically.

Historical monument has been lost, but in 1984 still published (rewritten version). Having studied all historical and linguistic evidence, scholars may argue that the language yatvyazhsky be in close proximity to the Prussian language. And some of the Slavic dialects used in the ancient land and yatvyazhskih adjacent territories, hitherto maintained a particular yatvyazhskogo language. Thus, we examined two of the five "dead" languages of the Baltic Sea. With the continuation of the themes you can find in the article "Historical information about the" dead " Baltic languages.
