My attempted point was that Parent Language A *s does not become Daughter
Language *t.

The data above seems to prove me wrong if Proto-Uralic */s/ becomes Samoyed
*/t/ but is it certain that the relationship between the two is that

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge the other direction of change: */t/ ->



Uralic data is not clear
because we don't know what it was originally.

Vietnamese and southern Chinese dialects
exhibit s > t for sure.
Even Pali words with PIE #s- now have #t-
