Hello Seasmith,
I haven't read Teresa's book, not because I don't like the theme of it. Quite the contrary. I'm sure it's full of details I would find very interesting. My problem (as you've probably guessed) lies with those multiple etymological sources stated as PIE. At this stage, they're becoming increasingly annoying. I've done everything in my power to offer up the origins of many if not all our words, with proof through both sounds and meanings, not least of which those deriving from Sumerian KIL/KILI - think Gobekli, think Celt. I daresay Teresa has never heard of either KIL or me and there you go. Such is life. Will this information ever become public knowledge? It's been four years now so I'm not holding my breath.
