You read the word "border" into the text. It is not there. 

Is there Chukotka in the text ?

With that difference that Kurdistan was never a state(not a part of it) while Great-Lithuania was a state for quite a long time. 

The term "Lithuania" was starting to apply for territory inhabited by lithuanians long before rise and fall of GDL, etc.
Do you suppose prussian lithuanians were so well isolated by the prussian border that they forgot/became unaware of lithuanians and Lithuania nearby ? Well, you are wrong in that case.

Anyway, there were claims that Lithuania is the continuous perceived territory. Researcher of this problem, Silva Pocyte, is actually claiming that Lithuania was common ethnolinguistic area.

You should have facts to disproof that. For instance, some old text telling that Lithuania <> Lithuania, or lietuvninkas<>lietuvis. So far it's only opinion vs (at least single) fact.
