The author tries to show differences between glottochronology and his method of comparing the vocabulary in parallel texts: (a) glottochronologists distinguish between cultural and not-cultural words, whereas he does not; (b) glottochronologists investigate the vocabulary on word lists (prepared by them), whereas he compares the vocabulary in parallel texts (which are authentic material); (c) the number of words taken into consideration by him is unlimited; (d) glottochronologists claim that the rate of change of non-cultural words in different languages is stable, whereas he believes there are great differences between the rate of change of the vocabulary in different languages.
