Yeah, thanks, I understand. I just posted the BBC links because you brought up the BBC and it reminded me of that, and that's pretty much all I know of from the BBC apart from what you just pointed out.
Anybody know what words in South Asian Sino-Tibetan languages are cognates with words in Chinese (any variants)?
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ خَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافُ أَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَأَلْوَانِكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِلْعَالِمِينَ "And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge." (Ar-Rum: 22)
