Controversy about Nilo-Saharan[edit]

I note that Azalea Pomp has raised questions about Nilo-Saharan. This should be backed up with some reference to support the controversy claim. Pete unseth (talk) 23:12, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it's hypothetical, but no more than many other proposals. But I think her point is that all such proposals should be made explicit.
BTW, any idea where the Ethnologue 16 classification comes from? kwami (talk) 09:27, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
I have removed the wording indicating any controversy about Nilo-Saharan. So far Azalea has failed to provide any sources showing that such a controversy really exists, apart from the usual doubts which arise with any statement in historical linguistics. On the source of Ethnologue 16: I don't know where it comes from, but the classification sort of matches with one I got as a student from Bernd Heine 15 years ago.
