South Semitic, with a Cushitic substratum.Sounds similar to Arabic in my ears.
Is Tigrinya a Cushitic language related to Somali?
Yeah it's crazy how old afroasiatic is it's a very loose language family almost a mega family@government Keep in mind that Afro-Asiatic is about 12,000 years old. Way, way older than Indo-European.
Indo-European has languages sounding as different as German, Italian, and Hindi. Linguistic classifications are more based on grammar and shared root vocabulary than with phonology.
I don't want to sound biased but Somali by far was the best sounding Cushitic language on that video. The rolling of the r was very elegant I never actually thought of how much we roll our r lol. Sounds a lot better then the rest tbh.
