    This is not an explanation for language borrowing or generation. It sounds like an excuse for not being able to explain the facts with the model.

    No point has been made.:blush: Support is missing in your argument.

    You need to prove your claim. Proclaiming "no" is not enough.

    If they were segregated, it does not make sense. Why were basic words vastly adopted from the Ainu and Malayo-Polynesian languages? In England, such adoption of words from the Celtic did not take...

    Can you clarify the status of the proto-Japanese language? Was it a pidgin/creol or a second language spoken by the speakers of the Kaya dialect or by the speakers of the an Ainu or Malayo-Polynesian...

    Any scholar who asserts particular connection to proto-Japanese would say their theory is more convincing than others. A quick googling led to me the following article severely criticizing the book:...

    I don't think land is an issue anymore. The whole population is decreasing. What they need is children, who contribute to maintaining labor forces. (sorry this was off-topic).

    Well,the relation between Japanese, Korean, and other Altaic languages has not been settled. It's hard to say which scholar's argument holds true.

    This is interesting. If you try Japanese cuisine and Huaiyang cuisine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huaiyang_cuisine), you will find out that these two share a lot. Some of my Chinese friends even...
  11. Poll: What do you mean by "Although not direct rule, it...

    What do you mean by "Although not direct rule, it is nominally under the control of the Chinese Empire"? The term "under the control of the Chinese Empire" seems ambiguous. Wasn't Korea also under...

    So, if the Han people and the Manchu people are separate peoples, what legitimate reason the Republic of China has to occupy Tibet?
  13. Poll: I thought Qing Dynasty was also not a Han...

    I thought Qing Dynasty was also not a Han dynasty. So, technically, Tibet was reined by the Manchu people not by the Han people. Then, why do you call the Mongols as a separate non-han people but...

    Does it mean Korea could be also claimed by China?

    Does it mean if atheists do not behave morally, it is testimony to the fact that God did not give us a conscience and that He did not write his laws on your hearts?:relief:

    This type of thinking that people do not behave morally without threat or reward from God sounds most scaring to more secularly oriented people. Does that mean that you would behave immorally if...

    First, let me ensure what you meant by your first point. I gather you are pointing out the fact that China and Korea signed the peace treaties without objection to the flag Japan had already started...

    OK. I got your view.


    I wouldn't say such an awful thing to someone who has experienced discrimination. Perhaps, you have never experienced discrimination of any sort.
