If you could imagine Pelasgians what would they look like in your head. In my head they look like Papuans.
Question: From which language did Greek evolve?
Answer: Cadmean/Boeotian/Puntian/Phoenician/Erytrean all the same (Continental African) people according to Herodotus; the source for all other Ancient European History. Its only when he's used as a source for African History he's called the father of lies.
“Now the Gephyraean clan, claim to have come at first from Eretria, but my own enquiry shows that they were among the Phoenicians who came with Cadmus to the country now called Boeotia.” Herodotus, Book 1, titled "Clio"
And more... "The Phoenicians who came with Cadmus . . . introduced into Greece, after their settlement in the country, a number of accomplishments, of which the most important was writing, an art till then, I think, unknown to the Greeks. At first they used the same characters as all the other Phoenicians, but as time went on, and they changed their language, they also changed the shape of their letters. At that period most of the Greeks in the neighborhood were Ionians; they were taught these letters by the Phoenicians and adopted them, with a few alterations, for their own use, continuing to refer to them as the Phoenician characters—as was only right, as the Phoenicians had introduced them." Herodotus
If there was a language prior to Cadmus then it came from Belus/Pelas another continental African this time from the West coast this is attested to by both Celtic and Grecian allegory. Pelas/Belus the mythical father of Cadmus and Europa and clearly the patriarch of the Pelasgi. Where are the Pelasgians in the Biblical Genesis?
Pelasgian Creation Myth: Adapted from Robert Graves’ The Greek Myths by Dr. James Luchte
In the beginning, Eurynome,
The Goddess of All Things,
Rose naked from Chaos.
She found nothing upon
Which to rest her feet, and thus,
She divided the sea from the sky.
She danced lonely upon
The waves of the sea.
She danced towards the South, and
The Wind set in motion behind her
Seemed something new and strange
With which to begin a work of creation.
Wheeling about, she caught hold of
This North wind, rubbed it between
Her hands, and behold!
The great serpent Ophion.
Eurynome danced to warm herself, wildly
And more wildly, until Ophion, enchanted,
Coiled about her divine limbs
Becoming one with her.
As she lay with the Ophion,
Eurynome was got with child.
Eurynome assumed the form of a dove,
Brooding upon the waves and with time,
She laid the Universal Egg.
At her bidding, Ophion coiled seven times
About this egg, until it hatched and split into two.
Out tumbled all things that exist, her children:
Sun, moon, planets, stars, Earth with her mountains
Rivers, trees, herbs, and all living creatures.
Eurynome and Ophion made their home upon
Mount Olympus where he vexed her by
Claiming to be the author of the Universe.
Forthwith, she bruised his head with her heel,
Kicked out his teeth, and banished him to the
Dark caves below the Earth.
Eurynome opened her gaze and her arms to her
Children, giving each its name which she read
Off its own singular power and being.
She named the sun, moon, planets, stars and
The Earth with her mountains and rivers, trees,
Herbs and living creatures.
She took joy in her creation, but soon found
Herself alone desiring the face, voice,
ear and warmth of another of her own.
Eurynome stood up and once again
Began to dance alone upon the waves.
