I don't really understand how ablaut and infixing come about. I've been trying 
to find information online with good explanations without any significant 
success. I found one paper on the theory of infix origins but it was very 
Chomskyan. Another summarized the different types but didn't give a me "feel" 
for it. There seems to be even less satisfactory information on ablaut origins. 
Apparently all the existing ablaut systems came about thousands of years ago. 
Any ideas?
