"Related?" In what way? "Alternates?" In what sense? p > w

justify the assumption of either change in Hattic? Almost
anything could be related to anything else, but unless you
can support it with a plausible pattern of correspondences
illustrated with real examples, an isolated equation like
"par = wel" is too long a shot.
