As linguists have confirmed, Lithuania belongs to the Indo-European language family’s Balto-Slavic branch. However, the term Baltic languages for Lithuanian, Old Prussian, and Latvian was first coined by German linguist Ferdinand Nesselman in 1845. There are tonal similarities between Lithuanian and Serbo-Croatian languages, and you’ll also find the same stresses in Russian and Lithuanian on certain syllables.
