If I may, I would like to share following article with [KS] subscribers.
"The finding sheds new light on the origin of the Japanese people,
suggesting that their language is descended from that of the rice-growing
farmers who arrived in
the Korean Peninsula,"
"John B. Whitman, an expert on Japanese linguistics who works at the
National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics, in Tokyo, and at
Cornell University, called the new finding solid and reasonable.”
