---> Who's Roy Andrew Miller, and what did he do to deserve such widespread
> reviling?
>

A scholar with a personality, who's also been busy for years trying
to place Japanese. As far as I know, he was one of the first western
scholars who tried to prove that Japanese wasn't unique and a language
isolate, and for that, most Japanese scholars have reviled him

Sometime last year, Discover magazine had an article about how DNA testing
had shown that the Japanese were definitely descended from Korean
immigrants.  Of course, both these peoples will likely be displeased by this
discovery.  This seems like very strong supporting evidence that Japanese is
an offshoot of the Korean tongue.  ~alypius
