Even Sergei L. Nikolaev, who attempts to link Wakashan, Nivkh and Algic (Almosan), and who notes the similarity of the Algonquian and Salishan words, says he "seriously doubt[s] whether Proto-Chukchi-Kamchatkan shares an immediate common ancestor with Nivkh, Wakashan and Algic; a more natural conclusion is that PChK merely shares" a number of contact words.
