I find the discussion on phonetic resemblance very stimulating.
Languages have been grouped on evidence of phonetic similarity; true.
But a large number of similarities are just coincidental or chance
resemblances. I can cite so many examples where Arabic seems to be very
close to English, French or German; does this mean that Arabic is
somehow related to the Indo-European family?
