Babbleologists & biologists

I like alliteration, so I just changed "linguists" to "babbleologists." In any case, Nick Wade has done a nice write-up titled A Biological Dig for the Roots of Language. Seeing as how Nick is normally on the genetics beat he tends to give the biologists a better hearing, and makes the linguists seem a bit spiteful. The central topic of the article is the recent research on the phylogeny of the Indo-European langauges. The only conclusion I came to after reading the article is that both "camps" need to talk to each other a little more....
