Mathematical linguistics, geography, archaeology, mythology, onomastics, ethnography are consolidated for the exploration of prehistoric ethnogenetic processes in one project under the common name Alternative Historical Linguistics. The main instrument of the research is a special graphic-alalytical method developed by the author and described 1987 in a Russian academical magazine. The essence of this method consists in the construction of the graphical models (diagrams) of the mutual relation of monophyletic languages. The results, sometimes seemingly incredible, form a logical sequence of conclusions which show a general course of etnogenethic processes within the time framework from the 6th mill BC till the 1st AD and on the territory from Asia Minor to Finland and from Central-Eastern Europe till the Far East. And this sequence is the most convincing evidence in favor of their plausibility. The model of the language relationship looks as a graph which has as so much knots how much of languages are studied. When the model is ready we try to find a place for it on a geographical map. The form of the model could not be broken therefore it is not easy to find suitable place on the map with the same topological character as the model. Each area of language formation must have distinct borders, which hinder intercourse between inhabitants of these areas and so contribute to forming new separate languages from the previous common one.

After finding convincing evidences about the present of the Anglo-Saxons in Easter Europe at the time when the rest of the Germanic tribes migrated west- and northward, the question about their following history stands up immediately. They left some tracks in place names but this survey hasn’t chronological frames. For luck chronological distinct tracks of the Anglo-Saxon can be found at Herodotus. Some names given by him can be explained by means of Old English. The Sarmates cannot be connected with some certain ethnos and the considerable ethnic unit among the Sarmates was represented by the Anglo-Saxons or they made the ruling apex of the Sarmates as more than 20% names could be interpreted by means of the Old English language. If we assume the presence of Anglo-Saxons on the territory of the Ukraine at the After-Scythian time, they have to be identified with some of tribes known to us from historical sources. One of such tribe could be the tribe of Alans. The reasons for such conjecture are the evidences of historians about the amities between the Alans and the Germanic tribes of Goths and Vandals. One can even meet sometimes the assertion that the Alanian language is the spoiled Gothic one.
Acknowledgement
              The project “Alternative linguistics” could not be realized without the assistance of specialists and moral supporting of my near friends. I thank them heartily. All names could not be mentioned here but these respected persons are worthy of individual thanks for my start in the science, methodological assistance during the preparing my article with the first description of the graphic-analytical method: Doctor V.T. Kolomiets, Academician A.S. Melnichuk (Kiev, Ukraine), Academicians G.G. Litavrin, N.I. Tolstoy, V.V. Sedov, and V.N. Yartseva (Moscow, Russia). I am especially grateful to the leaders of German-Ukrainian project “Transformation processes in the Western Ukraine” Professor Harald Plachter (Philips Universität Marburg, Germany), Professor Mechthild Roth (Technische Universität Dresden, Germany), Dipl.-Biologist Stephan Niemeier (Frankfurt am Mein, Germany) for the technical possibility to work in the frames of this project.
             I also thank my friend Doctor Mykola Zharkykh for the assistance in the preparing to the publication of two my books “The Study into Prehistoric Ethnogenic Processes in Eastern Europe” (1998, 2000), Elena Romanova (Montreal, Canada) , Norm Kisamov (Plymouth, USA), and Tim Lelchuk for the special literature, translation in English of some my texts, Professor Osman Karatay and Fatih Şengül (Turkey) for the special literature, the translation my works in Turkish and the publication them in Turkey, and also Martin Markovič for the acquaintance with the works of Czech scholars carrying cross-disciplinary researche on the osculation of social and natural sciences, Doctor Yuriy Kobiv (Lviv) for advice on botany and Vadym Stetsjyuk (Lviv, Ukraine) for advice on the mythology.
Lat virga “twig, rod” – Old Turkic bergä, “twig, birch, whip”, Xak, Uyg berge “whip”. The Hungarian virgácz “twig, birch”... can be referred to them. In this case, Hung virgone “agile, nimble, lively” and Chuv virkěn “to race, rush” also correspond to these words. Obviously, it is a wandering word wich traces are present in many languages having different but similar meaning (e.g. Erzya verka “quick”, Rus birka and other similar Slavic words “smal twig”, “catkin”, Ger Birke “birch”, Hung virag “flowers”, Kurd wurg “lively”). If the creators of the Tripilla culture were Semites, all these words can originate from some word similar to the Ar firh and Heb perax "flower". Then Lat virgō "virgin" should be referred here (cf. "deflowering").
