ፍካረ ኔቢያት

Well, you’re here.

This is not my first linguistics blogged centered around historical linguistics and Semitic languages, but hopefully this can be the long term one. You may remember my material from the short-lived “Qwanqwa Project” or my two previous Tumblr blogs, but this is now where my latest ideas and work will be.

This blog is primarily intended to be informative, being that there is little-to-no blogs on Afroasiatic languages within their historical contexts that take a fresh look at the ever continuous mystery that is Afroasiatic linguistics. Because I myself am Ethiopian with family roots that trace back to some of the Horn of Africa’s first Muslims and to the Tewahedo Orthodox church, these two entities will play a prominent role to some degree with the discussion regarding Ethiopia and at times, Eritrea. Language in the Horn of Africa and the adjacent Arabian peninsula is indeed very, very seemingly misunderstood and hopefully in the future anything I provide will help clear up a lot of the mysteries and confusion surrounding historical linguistics in general.

If you in any way need to contact me, my email is mengeshanebiat@gmail.com. Questions and even post requests are welcome.
