Kelkar made the claim that 'Greenberg's work on AmeriInd
family is well accepted by linguists'.  When I told him that
this is not the case, he responded with by quoting C-S.
Either he was indulging in pure non sequitur, or the
quotation from C-S was somehow supposed to support the claim
about linguists.  Obviously it does not, so I pointed this
out to him.
You think you are the only _source_ of what linguists "agree" or "disagree" on?

All of this was still visible in my post from which you
quoted above.  I so not think it an accident that you
snipped the context that makes sense of the whole exchange,
thereby making your own misrepresentation a little less



How dare you characterize what I wrote as a "misrepresentation"!
What "misrepresentation"? Specifically?
Are you actually suggesting that I removed information from the posting to facilitate the introduction of a deliberate lie?
