Comments on family membership

The cognation judgments involving Dem in Gordon F. Larson 1977 are overly optimistic in that a match is judged if at least one segment matches. This procedure yields inconsistent sound correspondences. The lexicostatistic argument for relatedness is the only one offered so far, and apart from probable borrowings, we cannot find any cognates in vocabulary or morphology.
