This paper presents the respondent’s general comments to some of the papers of the seminar on the “Indo-European Homeland and Migrations: Linguistics, Archeology and DNA” (Moscow, 12 September, 2012). It briefly examines three homeland models (Neolithic Anatolia, Near Eastern and Pontic-Caspian) in terms of their ability to address the issues of Indo-European phylogeny (the separation of Anatolian from the rest of the Indo-European languages) and the dispersal of agricultural terms across the Indo-European world.
Keywords: Indo-European homeland, Indo-European phylogeny, Indo-European agriculture
