My response on etyma and semantic tracks is posted at View Archives Message #96 (since the size
is 7.2k and too much for this list). Longer responses (upto 200k) can be sent
to sarasvati at which will automatically get posted on the Archives.

Would deeply appreciate further comments and suggestions. Yes, indeed,

indology has for 'science', however, imperfect... On semantics vs. phonetics,
