Plausible but unproven. Glen Gordon's view of how they are related
are set out in http://glen_gordon.tripod.com
You will find many discussions of the issue on this list if you
search the list for Tyrrhenian (the group to which he assigns
Etruscan and a few other fragmentary languages) or Indo-Tyrrhenian
(Indo-European plus Tyrrhenian). I think the discussion properly
belongs to the Nostratic list
, but that has gone quiet.
My application to join that group has been pending for over a month!
Glen's views are his own.
