Proposing many new cognate sets and building on many decades of his own previous research, Matisoff (2003) represents a major contribution to Tibeto-Burman linguistics. Unfortunately, Matisoff’s use of Tibetan is marred by errors of fact and analysis, which together undermine confidence in his reconstructions.
