I'm guessing so that people could communicate directly, immediately and clearly, rather than unclear reasons as to why you're pointing or gesturing a certain way.
The ancestor of most (not all) European languages is calledIndo-European, spoken about 50,000 to 200,000 years ago.
European isn't a language. Romance Languages are languages descended from Latin. The Romance Languages are: Aragonese Asturian Catalan Corsican Emilian Franco-ProvenÃ§al F…rench Galician Italian Judaeo-Spanish (Ladino) Leonese Milanese Mirandese Neapolitan Occitan Picard Piedmontese Portuguese Romanian Romansh Sardinian Sicilian Spanish Venetian Walloon There are really two reasons as to why they are called "Romantic". One, is that yes they are languages always associated with "love". You'll see a lot of love movies in French, Spanish and Italian in what people call the "sexy languages". You'll see a lot of people trying to become fluent in French, Spanish or Italian to impress the girls. The OTHER reason is that, in reality these languages are all Latin dialects. But, now have evolved into their own languages. Latin was the language that the Romans were speaking, and hence the term "ROMANtic" or "ROMANce", not to mention, the countries that are today Spain, Portugal, Italy and France were all part of the Roman Empire. You can also see now as to how Spanish conquistadors got the "skill" to create such a large empire because Spanish people themselves are basically Romans. Portuguese is known as the "sweet language". Spanish speakers envy Portuguese speakers a lot.
Many languages originated from Indo-European roots because Indo-Europeans were the base of many languages like German, Spanish, English, Persian, and Sanskrit. Through cultura…l diffusion and migration, the languages got spread out over time. After being in different regions, the languages developed their own unique style and pronunciation, changing into the languages they are today.
Yiddish is a 'patois', an amalgam of the languages of all the nations in which the eastern European or 'Ashkenazic' Jews have been dispersed during the past thousand years or …so. The single language that it resembles most is probably Renaissance German, but it also includes healthy portions of Hebrew, Russian, Polish, Slavic, and now, English.

Linguists have reconstructed the parent language and call it Proto-Indo-European (PIE). This reconstruction is very detailed. It is believed that PIE was spoken prior to 3700 …BCE, possibly in the Pontic-Caspian steppe of Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

Most languages not in Europe. Finnish, Estonian and Hungarian and other Uralic languages are not indo European languages in origin. Persian, and languages developed from Sansk…rit (ie Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, punjabi etc.) ARE indo-European. Maltese is not. Telugu, Kannada, and Tamil are Indian languages that are Dravidian, not related to Sanskrit. You weren't very specific so this is the best I can do, sorry.
