407 Seiten, m. graph. Darst., Leinenband mit Schutzumschlag in neuwertigem Zustand. - The Southem Cushitic languages of East Africa form one of four coordinate or very nearly coordinate branches (Ehret, 1976) of the Cushitic sub-family of Afroasiatic (Hamito-Semitic). Their genetic unity vis-a-vis the rest of Cushitic and Afroasiatic was proposed by Joseph Greenberg in the 1950s on the basis of evidence, offen very scanty, for the languages Dahalo, Ma'a, Iraqw and its dialect Gorowa, Burunge, and Alagwa. The chapters and tables that follow demonstrate, through systematic phonological and vocabulary reconstruction based on far more extensive evidence, the reality and validity of the Southern Cushitic group. Two additional languages Asa and Kw'adza, not originally noted by Greenberg, muss be included in the language group. Their affiliation to Southern Cushitic was independently discovered in the early 1960's by Harold Fleming (1969) and the writer. The existing Southern Cushitic languages can be alotted to three coordinate branches, as will be demonstrated in chapters 6-10. The Dahaloan and Mbuguan branches consist each of a single language - respectively Dahalo and Ma'a. The other five Southern Cushitic languages form the third branch, Rift, which divides into two coordinate subgroups, East Rift consisting of Kw'adza and Asa and West Rift composed of Iraqw, Burunge, and Alagwa. A considerable number of now extinct Southern Cushitic languages, most of them attributable to one or another of the three branches, were formerly spoken in different parts of East Africa before the numerous and extensive expansions of Nilotic and Bantu languages over the pass two thousand years; and the proto-Southern Cushitic language from which all the extant and extinct Southem Cushitic languages descend was in all likelihood the speech of the first agricultural peoples of Kenya and Tanzania (Ehret, 1974). The modern Southern Cushites are thus the heirs of an ancient and seminal tradition in the culture history of essfern Africa. (Introduction) Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 800.
