Don’t deflect I replied to this BS statement of yoursy
ou really think arabs were speaking somali in that case everybody before arabs were speaking somali and eating banana and rice
Lol, we do have a language but the amount of foreign words in it are crazy. Decades ago Somali linguists used to say 30% of our language is Arabic. Add the English and Italian loanwords and perhaps that percentage goes up to 50%Somalis don't have language and how can u claim other ppl words and language and still be proud
But why did Somalis choose foreign words over their this is mostly I am not interested to be part of Somalis nor the country cuz I think Somalis themself will erase their whole identity Somalis already with language and culture the only thing left is to drop Somali name even non Somalis are claiming to Somalis and claiming Somali tribe this putted me off mostlyLol, we do have a language but the amount of foreign words in it are crazy.

Islamic loanwords I GET it, but the fact that we replaced simple everyday words with Arabic words is just disgrace.
