To the moderators: Please move this if I am in the wrong section. (It seemed the best place, to me.)

I am searching for a pointer to material on the structure of the language families ("language tree") as it exists, today; and how well that agrees with the creationist perspective and the evolutionist perspective.

I know such material exists, as I read on the subject some 20-25 years or so, ago. But now I can not seem to find that material.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I found a couple of interesting sites:

http://en.wikipedia....ary_linguistics

http://library.think...04367/la1.shtml

http://webspace.ship...r/langevol.html

The first two have several links to more material.

Good luck!

I tend to gravitate away from Wikipedia due to its unreliability and ease of misinformation.

Below are a few good reference sites to read up on languages:


http://www.historywo...?historyid=ab13

http://www.icr.org/a...es/view/90/289/

http://www.statemast...ins-of-language

http://creation.com/...ins-of-language


There are many more sites you can go to in your search, but you need to be aware of the evolutheistic propaganda that floods the information highway.
