You're right of course - all languages ultimately descend from the very
same first language, which can easily be reconstructing, notwithstanding
what Mark Rosenfelder writes at http://www.zompist.com/proto.html, as
I've clearly demonstrated when giving the Swadesh formula for Denden,
Valdyan and English and a host of other languages not long ago! Come on!
You know you can trust your intuition ;-).
