This paper considers certain methodological issues that have arisen over the course of an investigation into the likelihood that oblique subject constructions in the Indo-European languages are inherited from Proto-Indo-European. In the process, we desire to elicit productive criticism of the methods employed in this research toward the end of creating a useful methodological process for comparing syntactic forms. The paper also discusses what appear to be legitimate problems in forming a method for diachronic comparative syntax versus criticisms of comparative work that should not be considered especially problematic for syntactic studies.
