Burushaski is a language spoken in northern Pakistan and Kashmir. It is spoken by 40,000 to 50,000 people. It has no known relatives and some believe it maybe a remnant of a prehistoric language. Burushaski is like Ainu and Basque, language isolate with no known relatives.

Democratic Party rhetoric has no lnown relatives either. Perhaps the narrowing gene pool will die out.
LOL! Of course not. Well, it might be related to Communist and Nazis rhetoric.
WTF does the democratic party rhetoric have to do with Burushaski? Turns out that as far as typology, grammar, and syntax are concerned the closest language to Burushaski is Basque!;)I also read an anecdote that population genetics have linked the basques and the Hunza's; but even so that doesn't help much in terms of grouping basque and burushaski into a distinct language family....
