Competing PCK reconstructions?[edit]

To what extent does Oleg Mudrak's reconstruction[1] differ from that of Fortescue?--Pet'usek [petrdothrubisatgmaildotcom] 11:20, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

CK not part of Uralo-Siberian anymore according to Fortescue?[edit]

Where in his article does Fortescue state he no longer views Chukotko-Kamchatkan as a part of his Uralo-Siberian proposal? Saying Nivkh is closer to Chukotko-Kamchatkan than anything else doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of them both being part of the larger Uralo-Siberian, unless Fortescue says so explicitly, of course. I don't have access to that particular article.--Pet'usek [petrdothrubisatgmaildotcom] 11:12, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Quoting from page 3 [1361]:
Given the results of the present investigation, the general conclusion
in Fortescue (1998) as to the relationship between CK and the hypothetical
‘‘Uralo-Siberian mesh’’ needs to be readjusted somewhat. I would no longer
wish to relate CK directly to that mesh, although I believe that some of
the lexical evidence adduced for a link with it will hold up in terms of
borrowing/diffusion.

D'oh, I had the same question and forgot to look here ... --Florian Blaschke (talk) 12:39, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

map[edit]

Caption of the map is incomplete: there are three distinct areas on the map, but the caption explains only two of them. Ceplm (talk) 23:42, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

There are two overlapping regions on the map. --JorisvS (talk) 12:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
