Mangelhafte Erklärung seitens von Ivo Hajnal da es keine
ernstzunehmende Quelle bennent:-)
I suspect he is not the only one. It happens I have fount recently
the same mention in an another work and this is "Ancient Languages of
the Balkan" of Radoslav Katic^ic^
He mention too the word "skalme" but as Ivo Hajnal, there is no
reference where is mentioned this glosse and why it should
mean "sword". Again the same odd style of " we suppose it meant
so_and_so" because "see Lit. skelti" :-))
Thank you Thorsten . It appears there are a lot of shcolars which
simply copy each other without bother to verify what about. So bad
for a lot of conclusions from a such manner to abord the things.
