Introduction

Early Proto-Finnic (Finnish: varhaiskantasuomi) is a reconstructed language, which was the predecessor of all Sami and Finnic languages, such as Finnish for example.

Latest therories claim that this language was spoken during a relatively short period 1500BC-1000BC.

Early Proto-Finnic envolved into Late Proto-Finnic and Proto-Sami.
