New resources are considered: except reconstructing consonants, vowels and tone, the examine additionally contains derivational and inflectional morphology in addition to pronouns. The e-book comprises major elements. the 1st half (chapter 2-8) is devoted to the reconstruction of consonants, vowels and tone, to the subclassification of Nilo-Saharan, verbal and nominal derivation, inflection and the pronominal approach. the second one half (chapter nine) is an etymological dictionary of 1,606 roots, complemented through annotations and reflexes of the roots within the specific languages. greater than 10,000 roots are mentioned without delay. The research of the 1st half (chapter 2-8) is predicated at the facts prepared in bankruptcy nine. crucial results of Ehret's paintings matters the connection of Songay within the Nilo-Saharan context. the writer argues convincingly that Songay might be considered as an critical member of the Nilo-Saharan family members. Connections with Mande needs to be obvious as borrowings from Songay into Mande. moreover, the verified general sound correspondences and the reconstructed Proto-Nilo-Saharan vocabulary permit for drawing up phonological histories of every language and distinguishing among personal loan as opposed to long term inherited phrases.
