Af-Maay is it a language?

I have seen many on this site try and pass Af-Maay as a seperate language rather than a dialect/Accent. Try and see if you can understand a word from this...


Most probably couldn’t translate a single sentence of that due to its fast pace and gabay level vocabulary but when you get a video with subtitles like this(I know please bare with me)...
You will begin to see Af-maay as just another lahjad. Try slowing the video a little if its too fast you will notice its just heavily accented maxaa-tiri with the words rearranged compared to some areas.

I know few who speak this so its a revelation to me

The second one is understandable. (Well I only watched the first minute but I could understand it)

Both videos are fine for me the second one is easier only cause there is context to what is being said though.

Af-Soomali = any indigenous somali language

Af Maxaa is the one most Somalis use. It is a language

Af Maay is the one RX use, its also a language

They're both classified under the umbrella term Af Soomaali

RX was a generalisation. Its generally spoken in Bay, bakool areas

Or were you expecting me to mention its Bantu speakers? :mjpls:

I don’t think you know what a language is but Af-Somali is one language. Garre is not Af-Somali but is indigenous.

Garre falls under maay i think there are different dialects of maay some are a called a laungage of its own by linguistics while others fall under aafsoomali.

The issue is that maxa tiri is main laungage but RX refuse to speak maxa tiri even though we don't understand them but they understand us.

PL was allies to RX for decades and helped RRA forces free RX lands from a decade long HG occupation and later with Mohamed dheere of Jowhar founded the SRRC political group that established federalism with Jowhar and Baidoa as transitional capitals. Many RX who fled USC to PL with help from Bay/Bakool MJs who hooked them up with jobs and places to settle. PL and RX have good ties do believe everything you read.

Modern day Baidoa started booming when the first Federal government and its ministries, NGOs etc was based in Baidoa infact all of Bay was under SFG and RX joined in huge numbers the federal forces until sheikh sharifs admin when all those troops choose to be Alshabab under Mukthar roobow.

Was talking about the current Laftagareen admin :ivers:
 
It's a different language, a completely separate language. Both sides fail to understand each other fully so how can you pass it off as a dialect?
