For the record, what I'm suggesting at my site is not that the roots
mentioned be cognates of Proto-World including Austronesian,
AfroAsiatic and IE, but that they are loan words from some or several
Austronesian languages (or w.r.t. the pig words even New Guinea
languages?) into AfroAsiatic and (thence?) into IE.
