Dear Mr Mac Callister,
I am becoming a little bit uneasy with your mails.
You said Aikio wrote this and that,
but ultimately, it proved wrong.
He wrote the contrary.
You said Kartvelian comes from some Eastern place,
but you could not provide references.
You said Trask wrote that and this,
but it proves wrong.
I suggest you better check your references,
before you cite other people's works.
You "imagine" a little bit too much.

Trask brought that etymology up a few times on
postings. If it's not in H o Bq, then I'd imagine it's
in his Basque etymological dictionary and probably in
Mitxelena as well.
