Group Description

This is a forum for the discussion of the hypothetical Nostratic language (macro-)family, whether it's valid in the first place, which languages and language families belong in it, and the reconstruction of the Proto-Nostratic grammar and lexicon. Other linguistic issues may be discussed as long as they are relevant to the Nostratic hypothesis. Discussion of other macro-family proposals is acceptable, but the main focus of this list should remain the Nostratic proposal.



Spam, flaming, and off-topic discussions will not be tolerated. Issues that will be considered off-topic include, but are not limited to, quasi-theories that some or all languages derive from an arbitrarily proposed common source, as well as speculation about the origin of human speech. Discussions that focus on matters specific to an individual language or language family should be taken to more appropriate fora, for example cybalist or pieml for PIE. Likewise, discussions that focus on phonetics should be taken to phoNet.
