So Nyland has a whole dictionary of these "Saharan/Basque"  roots, and I plan
to use some in nzvauxa, just for a augh and because i often come up with
vocabulary items that i later discover bear some resemblance to English or
Spanish or some language i have a smattering of.  The VCV dictionary is at:

I ahve to thank nicole for bringing Nyland's insane work back to my
attention.  I have one question though: any clue where Edo came up with his
theory?  are there any books or articles that may have led him to his theory?
 does anyone else in teh world believe anything like this?  are there any
equally insane hypotheses that someone can point me to?
