Category:Caucasian languages[edit]

This is not a linguistic category, it is geographical. The families mentioned are not related at all, and should either be moved to 'Languages of the Caucasus' or split by language family. Nadando 22:41, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

They can't be split by language family. One of the reasons this category exists is that relationships among the various languages are very much up in the air, although there is a "feeling" among many experts that many of the languages are related...somehow. Note that there is a geographical category Category:Languages of the Caucasus, but its contents are different, because there are many other languages spoken in that region which are not part of the "Caucasian" assemblage of languages. --EncycloPetey 18:03, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
One of the reasons this category exists is that relationships among the various languages are very much up in the air - what? there's a very clear consensus that there are three Caucasian language families - that is Northwest, Northeast and South Caucasian. -- Prince Kassad 18:30, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
So, you mean that each of those three groups sprang into existence from non-language independently? The relationships between those groups and other language families is unclear. --EncycloPetey 22:51, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
All categories moved, striking. Nadando 20:11, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
