Abstract

The article represents the stages of scientific researches of mass comparison of the languages of the world as a major problem of Nostratic linguistics. The definition of “Nostratic Proto-Language” / “Proto-Nostratic Language” has been offered. The chronological and areal research stages of establishment of Nostratic linguistics have been analyzed: from pre-propaedeutic (pair comparison of language families), propaedeutic (comparison of three language families), classification (represented by the Indo-European, Kartvelian, Afro-Asiatic, Uralic, Altaic and Dravidian language families (V.M. Ilyich-Svitych)) to research and taxonomic (expansion of the Nostratic macrofamily) stages.
