I must be weird then, because I tend to like anomalies; I find them fascinating.
But I realize I'm an anomaly [:P]
At least you like yourself, then!

I must be weird then, because I tend to like anomalies; I find them fascinating. I'm always disappointed when I find out that some "pre-IE" root in Greek or Latin might actually just be an odd outcome of an IE root. (I was even disappointed when the "Koreanic" family came about and no longer was Korean considered an isolate). I like mysteries. But I realize I'm an anomaly [:P]
To be fair, Koreanic is still a language isolate if you count only extant languages. Then, one could argue that the dialect of Jeju is so distinct that you can count is as a language of its own, which would make for a new "Koranic" language family with two members.

Many children make up, or begin to make up, imaginary languages. I have been at it since I could write.

I'll believe it when I see someone lay out the sound correspondences and not just vaguely similar-sounding words.

My point was that "my" theory is as valid as this thread's OP's, and the response I got for that thread is all I can say about it.

Ah, I see. My bad if I came off as hostile or anything
