The Lithuanian-Polish Dispute free pdf Excerpt from The Lithuanian-Polish Dispute: Second Assembly of the League of Nations at Geneva 1921 Lithuania, a country still comparatively little known, notwithstanding the striking vicissitudes of her history, has appeared again in the family of free nations. An age-long mystery, something significant clings to a people who, amidst the ocean of Slavs and Teutons, have preserved up to the present day their ethnical unity, unique language, and peculiar ancient civilisation. Race and Language. Numbering about four millions, the Lithuanian race represents a survival of an entirely separate and distinct branch of the Aryan family, and is related neither to Slavs nor Teutons, being far more ancient than either. Lithuanians are believed to be autochthonous to the Baltic shores, the territory they still occupy to-day. It may be noted that it was probably the Lithuanians who gave its name to the Baltic Sea, the word Baltic meaning "white" in Lithuanian. The Lithuanian language, professorships in the instruction of which have been established in many universities, is as different from Polish, Russian, or German, as is English from Greek. So well have the primitive characteristics of this language been preserved that even Lithuanian immigrants in Scotland or the United States still mould their speech in the fashion of Homer's heroes, using a dual number besides the singular and plural, and employing many other archaic forms which have been lost in other languages. Benjamin D. Dwight, in "Modern Philology" has written: - "This (the Lithuanian tongue) is a language of great value to the philologist. It is the most antique in its forms of all living languages of the world, and most akin in its substance and spirit to the primeval Sanskrit. It is also at the same time so much like the Latin and the Greek as to occupy the ear of the etymologist, and in the multitude of words not otherwise understood, in the place of the interpreter, with its face fixed on Latin and its hand pointing backwards to the Sanskrit. It is like a universal interpreter, seeming to have the gift of tongues, since its tongue is so greatly like the rest in preserving the purse of prime model, from which they are all corrupt derivatives, as to seem, in whatever language you hear, the chime of that language, ringing loud and clear from ancient time." No less an authority than Elise Reclus, in "Geographic Universelle," states: - "If the value of a nation in the total sum of humanity were to be measured by the beauty of its language, the Lithuanian ought to have the first place among the nations of Europe." And the famous philosopher, Emmanuel Kant, in his preface to Mielxe's Dictionary says: - "She (Lithuania) must be preserved, for her tongue possesses the key which opens the enigmas not only of philology, but also of history." Early Struggles with Teutonic Knights. Early history finds the Lithuanian nation continually fighting against Slavonic invasion.
