  abstract = {The main findings of another look (after Conspectus [1972] - reviews noted) are that Sino-Tibetan is now a well-established family; Tai and Miao-Yao must still be excluded, although each has made early borrowings (especially numerals) from Chinese dialects or related languages; lexical analysis (Swadesh 100-word list) supports the taxonomic arrangement (Conspectus) setting Chinese apart from Tibeto-Burman, but the position of Karen remains indeterminate; the Sino-Tibetan reconstruction (Conspectus) remains largely unchanged despite some refinements, but recent studies have uncovered an extensive prefixation pattern (mainly s-, also?- and m-) for Archaic Chinese, radically altering the 'look' of the language in the direction of Tibetan and other Tibeto-Burman languages; finally, a review of comparative Sino-Tibetan studies reveals that data (sources) are less often at fault than scholars.},
