I am not sure what is your point (too many but's to my taste), however I
believe the present-day speakers of the so-called Basque language will
object loudly if you pretend their language is "imported" ;-).
OTOH and to keep trolling, I consider present so-called English to be much
more an import from the other side of the ocean, rather than an evolution of
the language I was taught in the last century.
Do they [em,im]migrate?
