> Though I'm not sure we ever said this explicitly in this project, the overall impression I got from coding and analyzing all this data was that the sample of hunter-gatherers was more variable than intensive agriculturalists, but not necessarily more so than small-scale agriculturalists. Certainly none of the claims that hunter-gatherer languages share features as a group distinct from agriculturalists is impossible to maintain.
