Vladimir I. Georgiev

Vladimir Ivanov Georgiev was a prominent Bulgarian linguist, philologist, and educational administrator. [Office of the Foreign Secretary, p. 15.] He has made multiple contributions to the field of Thracology, which include a linguistic interpretation of an inscription discovered at the village of Kyolmen in the Shoumen district of northwestern Bulgaria. [Ivanov, p. 8. "Since we have just spoken in the same breath of the Thracians and the Etruscans, in connection with their language and the writing they used, let us refer, even though quite briefly, to the importance of the achievements of Bulgarian linguist Vladimir Georgiev in "Thracology". The reference is more specifically to his interpretation of the inscription discovered several years ago at the village of Kyolmen (Shoumen district, North-western Bulgaria)."] In the 1960's, Georgiev examined the names of the twenty-six largest rivers of central and eastern Europe. He believed that the names were reconstructible to Proto-Indo-European. He concluded that the Indo-European homeland was delimited on the west by the Rhine river and to the east by the Don river. [Curtius, Weil, Tytler, Scaglione, Wilbur, and Huntsman, p. lxvi. "The late 1960's saw the reinterpretation of Krahe's 'Old European' river names. The Bulgarian linguist, Vladimir Georgiev, examined the names of the twenty-six largest rivers of central and eastern Europe and found all of them be reconstructible to PIE. An examination of the large rivers outside this central core, e.g., Siene, Po, Kama, Ural showed the names to be either non-Indo-European or late Indo-European. Therefore, Georgiev concluded that the IE homeland was delimited on the west by the Rhine and on the east by the river Don (Georgiev 1966)."]
