Pretty informative podcast. The expert they have on stated that linguistics doesn't necessarily care about words. But rather how a language is spoken, is where the experts draw a lot of their conclusions. For example, English is a solidly Germanic language, because of the way it is spoken. Despite the fact that much of the lexicon has Romance (by way of French influence), and other non-Germanic words.
