Wow , whenever I detangle my dreads , I have the exact afro a little bigger , it looks identical though.

But nonetheless good video , enjoyed seeing the striking similarities between loan words and each native tongue's vocabularies.

Turkish have vast words derived from Arabic.
Their alphabet seems difficult to read, I've been practicing several languages on Duolingo , I like learning stuff randomly on Duolingo
Their letter C is pronounced as J
Which is Interesting.

Somali is ancient although we borrowed these words due to influences pre colonial times , close proximity to that region and contact with the Ottomans and Omani kingdom hence it is common sense.

Majority of Libyans , mostly are Arabised Berbers , a handful are able to speak indigenous, although they were Turkified at some point.

They have ottoman influences.

Yemeni dialect is the only Middle Eastern dialect that are closest to us.
I believe the Northern part of that country was somehow under the influence of Ottoman , not directly , proxy , locals governing their areas, somewhat of a trusteeship correct me if I am wrong.
Influences.
