    Interesting note:
       Sanskrit is a totally regular language without all the exceptions
    we acquired organically over thousands of years.

    Amaya (sp?) is *another* totally regular language -- from South
    America, dating from a similar time period.

      HOW does a totally regular language exist without a widespread
      education structure to keep it that way?

      HOW can two such civilizations have existed without ever coming
      into contact? It strains credulity to think they never were. So
      how closely intertwined were they????
