Literally all of the similarities between the two languages are Arabic loan words in Af Somali...
Wallahi you made a thread about me and it was a language similarity between Amharic and Arabic, right?
I told him to do Arabic and Somali he said email me and come to tronto to do it lol I don't live in Canada so I declined but that could've been you my gWallahi you made a thread about me and it was a language similarity between the Amharic and Arabic, right?
He probably saw that thread and decided to do an Arabic and Somali similarities.
What I want to know is what are true Somali words, when Arabic, English, Ethiopian, Afar, Italian, Indian, and Persian loan words are taken out.Just great more people will start asking if Somali is a localized adaptation of Arabic. When it's a completely different language group with some loan words.
Not the greatest example. English became the lingua franca of the world from borrowing from everyone and they were conquered by the Normans at one point. But I see your point. Words which have no foundation in Somali are borrowed from Arabic or other languages.It's like English with French.. something on the order of 30% of Somali vocabulary coming from Arabic.
