I don't suggest that. I simply point out that TKD says one thing while 
Okrand does another. Whether one is right and the other is wrong, or 
both are right under certain circumstances, or something else is going

It's okay to say "I don't know." It's the fundamental beginning of 
science, and linguistics is a science.
