Usko mediterraneans are defined as both ancient and modern populations that inhabited Mediterranean / Middle East / Caucasus and spoke a language that was similar to Basque. The comparisons carried out between genes and languages show a lack of correlation at the micro-geographic level: Macedonians, Palestinians, Kurds, part of the Berebers, Armenians and Turks belong to the ancient Mediterranean genetic subtract, and today they do not speak a language included in the (Dene-Caucasian) Usko-Mediterranean group, while others speak an "ancient Mediterranean or Usko-Mediterranean language" modified by Latin (for example, Spanish and Italian).
