Research of the primitive substratum of Sardinian, the Palaeo-Sardinian, had long come to an impasse, before structural and typological devices superseded the old historical-comparative method. The typological approach has shed light on the agglutinative organization of toponymic compounds, and at the same time highlighted striking resemblances with Palaeo-Basque morphological and lexical material and with Iberian records. In this paper we contend that a careful examination of structural and semantic properties of some Palaeo-Sardinian microtoponyms allow us to set up a new incisive line of cross-linguistic research between Old Iberia and Neolithic Sardinia.
