Next, we present our two comparative studies of the languages of Nuristan, the Dardic languages, and some other Indo-Iranian languages spoken in Southeastern Afghanistan, North India, and North Pakistan, based on different lexical data sets. For these analyses, we make use of software developed for visualizing evolutionary patterns, as well as other forms of similarities, in biological species, or other entities subject to change through descent with modification (e.g. languages). Such phylogenetic algorithms have been utilized successfully in historical-comparative linguistics since the first decade of the 21st century (see Bowern & Evans 2015).
