I. Fodor states:
“The main METHODOLOGICAL lesson has already been drawn in the previous section: without SOUND LAWS the genetic relations of the African languages cannot be PROVED either and the genetic classification of these languages can only be performed through the application of these principles. Failing these, even the most attractive ideas, like those of Greenberg remain, at the very best, working hypotheses only, and they may be replaced.” (I. Fodor 1966: 135)
