What's that have anything to do with it? The fact still remains that languages spoken now are part of a continuum stretching back to the first language or languages spoken God only knows how long ago. And I didn't say that there was one original language, I said "... possibly from Proto-World, if the theory of monogenesis is correct". It's also possible that language originated in several locations. My personal preference is for a single origin, but that's really only a personal feeling, since there's no way to prove or disprove it. -- Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon A nation without a language is a nation without a heart - Welsh proverb ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
