Comparative Methodology for Distant Relationships in North and South American Languages.
Key, Mary Ritchie
Language Sciences, v5 n2 p133-54 Oct 1983
Discusses several linguistic features at the phonological, morphological, structural, and semantic levels that should be investigated when applying comparative methodology to distant relationships. Advises caution in proposing proto-forms for distantly related languages, as they can obscure useful identification markers. (EKN)
