NigerK is 10,000 years in scope, John. You've got it all muddled in that
head of yours. I distinctly stated that NigerK is a DENECAUCASIAN language!
DeneCaucasian is approx. 25,000 years in my opinion. Nostratic is only PART
of this family being 15,000 years or so. Please, if you're quoting people,
try to understand them first before doing so. If using actual linguistic
data for my linguistic theories is simply an "assurance" I shudder to think
what your views might be labeled.
