There is work being done on the language. One theory, for which there is some evidence, says that Japanese is related to the Dravidian languages of Southern India. It states that around 30,000 years ago, one group moved east to Japan and another group moved south to India. There are similarities in sentence structure and honorifics, which are found in a lot of the "older" languages.
