IIRC, Nostratic is IE and a whole bunch of other languages, some that are thought to be isolates, the Siberian langs, etc. I don't know which languages are included beyond that. Nostratists (?) are basically trying to prove that IE is related to many more languages, that all share a common ancestor, which probably would indeed be pre-IE. -- Robert
