This is the main category of the Proto-Semitic language, represented in Wiktionary by the code sem-pro. It is the reconstructed ancestor of all Semitic languages, written in Latin script.[edit details]
Proto-Semitic is a hypothetical language. Words and roots in Proto-Semitic are not directly attested in any written works, but have been reconstructed through the comparative method, which finds regular similarities between languages that cannot be explained by coincidence or word-borrowing, and extrapolates ancient forms from these similarities.
According to our criteria for inclusion, Proto-Semitic should not be present in entries in the main namespace, but may be added to the Appendix: namespace.
