This volume is the first of its kind to provide a detailed, comprehensive treatment of the genealogical subgrouping of Semitic. Starting with the traditional, morphologic approach and then shifting to the pertinent lexical evidence, it covers key topics in the Semitic subgrouping debate, including the East/West dichotomy, the Central Semitic hypothesis, the Canaanite affiliation of Ugaritic.

There still exists a strong belief among linguists that glottochronology is a highly specialized method of answering by complicated mathematical calculations a very specific question, viz. when. The Nilo-Saharan languages are a proposed family of African languages spoken by some 50–60 million people, mainly in the upper parts of the Chari and Nile rivers, including historic Nubia, north of where the two tributaries of the Nile languages extend through 17 nations in the northern half of Africa: from Algeria to Benin in the west; from Libya to the Democratic Republic of the Geographic distribution: Central Africa, north-central.

The similarity between dispersed Bantu languages had been observed as early as in the 17th century. The term Bantu as a name or the group was coined (as Bâ-ntu) by Wilhelm Bleek in orand popularised in his Comparative Grammar of The name was coined to represent the word for 'people' in loosely reconstructed Proto-Bantu, from the plural noun class prefix *ba-categorizing Ethnicity: Bantu peoples.

Following the rejection of lexicostatistics, historical linguistics has had a ‘tradition of hostility toward probabilistic modelling’ (Sankoff,p. 96). Phylogenetic methods are often criticized for simply being ‘lexicostatistics redux,’ with all the fatal flaws inherent within lexicostatistics.

This book considers how and why forms and meanings of different languages at different times may resemble one another. Its editors and authors aim to explain and identify the relationship between areal diffusion and the genetic development of languages, and to discover the means of distinguishing what may cause one language to share the characteristics of another.

The migration of the Bantu people from their origins in southern West Africa saw a gradual population movement sweep through the central, eastern, and southern parts of the continent starting in the mid-2nd millennium BCE and finally ending before CE.
