-- frankly, I think relationships at that time-depth are unrecoverable with
any degree of confidence.

[ Moderator's note:
  I am posting this message as a reminder to those who accept some version of
  Nostratic that this *is* the Indo-European list, and not everyone is sanguine
  about the demonstrability of external relationships to PIE.  Since the debate
  regarding methodology continues on the Historical Linguistics mailing list, I
  will not entertain further posts on this topic here.
