A new methodological provisions has been suggested for performing the diachronic interpretation of phonological, morphological and semantic transformations and matches in the Nostratic data material and quantitative verification of degrees of Nostratic languages affinity in the following triad: type – kind – relations. Due to the obtained results the vertical and horizontal trajectories have been constructed: 1) the relations between Nostratic (Nostr) and one of the seven language families: Altaic (Alt), Afroasiatic (Afr), Dravidian (Drav), Eskimo-Aleutian (EA), Indo-European (IE), Kartvelian (Kart), Uralic (Ural) in general (vertical direction), as well as 2) the relations between Alt, Afr, Drav, EA, IE, Kart, Ural in particular (horizontal direction).

The universal hypothetical graphoanalytical network of degrees of Nostratic languages affinity as an accumulator of the predominance of DC transfornations and CD matches (G. V. Rauschenbach: 0,00 – 0.30) / CD matches and DC transfornations (G. V. Rauschenbach: above 0.30) in the Nostratic data material has been modelled with vertical and horizontal directions.

The main results of the work were presented in forty-four publications during the period 2015–2020, including: one section in a collective monograph, published in a country that is a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, one article in a scientific publication included in category A of the List of scientific professional publications of Ukraine, three articles in publications indexed in Scopus / Web of Science databases, three articles in scientific periodicals of other countries, one article in a scientific publication included in category B of the List of scientific professional publications of Ukraine, seventeen articles in scientific publications included in the List of scientific professional publications of Ukraine and abstracts of reports of nineteen scientific conferences.
