Language Families Chart Maps

To go along with the article and chart quoted on the last blog entry, we have the following notable geographic distributions for some exceptional linguistic associations:

Firstly, we have the ground Nostratic Eurasian+ American continuity, which is basically as to say CroMagnon (The borders in Africa and India are much more uncertain than shown) Presumably Atlantean languages would be nestled right in this continuity and it is generally admitted to have
    come out of Africa originally (The article did not endorse that notion, but it is commonly stated
    that way. The Afro-Asiatic (Semitic) languages are ordinarily included with the Nostratic)

Most recently and probably even postglacially, the Na-Dene peoples emerged from some inner-Asian source and generally associated with the Altaic family of languges (Which also tends to agree with certain features that tend to show up in their skulls, such as the form of the base of the skull, shortened length from front to back and shallow eye sockets, that also occur in Mongolia and environs) and then the Na-Denes settled over large parts of Alaska and Western Canada. The migration could be as recent as  4000-6000 years ago if it can be associated with certain tool types

Somewhat earlier than that, certain South-Asian peoples made a move into Western North America and became theUto-Aztecans, while at the same time strongly integrating with the land's native Penutian  inhabitants (Out of the Eurasian Nostratics already there and including Mayan and many Californian languages) Along with this at a slightly later date, some American peoples moved back over Beringia and into Eastern Siberia, and they settled in Kamchitka. We think we have the genetic evidence for all of this happening about at the end of the Ice Age, although later parallel events  may have also occurred and obscured the timing of these events.

 And somehow back in the last days of the Ice Age, there was continued and repeated commerce between New Guinea (Papua, but also "The Land of the Mu" it seems), to the extent that their linguistic developments in both places are completely emeshed in one another.
 At some point in postglacial times a splinter from the  Chinese language family to include certain obscure languages of Mexico and Mesoamerica somehow crossed the ocean to become established in the New World: and this might well be connected to the appearance of the Olmecs, jade use, and to the fact that  certain Olmec jade objects have archac Chinese ideograms carved on them.
 Finally it seems that certain Southeast Asian languages (of a group that includes the Thai of Thailand) are related to the Chibcha of South America AND to the Malayo-Polynesians (Thought to have had their main expansion out of Taiwan about the same time as civilization was developing in Egypt and in Mesopotamia) However, because of this there is now much less possible objection to the "Kon Tiki" theory that the Eastern Polynesia was colonized from South America in more recent times.                                             

X is already generally excerpted from this package and it is entirely possible A and B were no more present than X was. We do know now that Americans crossed back into Siberia (Kamchitka) and this is reasonably associated with the introduction of A2a into Siberia: A could have been absent from East Siberia and Beringia, and could have been introduced from another point of origin entirely (A is related to X) We do have what looks like an expansion of the s and Ds in that area at that time.

Here again is a copy of the Linguistic families chart which started this speculation.
