Literally all of the similarities between the two languages are Arabic loan words in Af Somali...
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.
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.
It's like English with French.. something on the order of 30% of Somali vocabulary coming from Arabic.
