PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, one of its most prominent and most controversial features was the on-screen keyboard. In as world dominated by devices with physical keyboards, it was seen as a joke, something that could never work. We know better by now, of course, but while I still prefer the physical feel and clicks of a real keyboard, a recent new endeavour of mine has made me appreciate the on-screen keyboard in a whole new way.

I will defer to your wisdom on this, but while Altaic is controversial my understanding is that the real controversy is over the so-called "Ural-Altaic" formation


Well, there's controversy and controversy. Let's just say that Altaic has, afaik, no main stream linguistic approval.

My point was more that there are major non-Indo-European languages in Europe...or close to Europe, depending on who's counting.


Indeed, the Finnish and Hungarian you named are some other examples.
