The African languages are generally divided into four language families Afro-Asiatic Nilo-Saharan Niger-Congo , and Khoisan . In addition, they include several unclassified languages , and of course sign languages
Main article: Afro-Asiatic languages
Formerly known as Hamito-Semitic languages, Afro-Asiatic languages are spoken in large parts of North Africa East Africa , and Southwest Asia . The Afro-Asiatic language family comprises approximately 240 languages spoken by 285 million people. The main subfamilies of Afro-Asiatic are the Semitic languages , the Cushitic languages Berber , and the Chadic languages . The Semitic languages are the only branch of Afro-Asiatic based outside of Africa. The Semitic, Berber and Egyptian branches are predominantly (though by no means exclusively) spoken by Caucasoid people, while Cushitic, Chadic, and Omotic are spoken by black Africans.
Some of the most widely spoken Afro-Asiatic languages include Arabic (Semitic), Oromo (Cushitic), and

Cluster Analysis 2 animals only, actual occurrences simplified Broadly, the three clusters may be characterised in the following terms: (A) ancient Egypt and Greece (C) Central and Southern Bantu-speaking sub-Saharan Africa, and classical China (D) Ancient Mesopotamia’s astral science, modern astronomy as its contemporary derivative, world-wide animal demon representations, and Central Bantu-speaking Nkoya society. Cluster (A) brings together a culture area which recent research (especially, but not exclusively, in terms of the Black Athena thesis) has increasingly identified as forming one historical whole; we may designate this the ‘Black Athena’ culture area. Cluster (D) would appear to be disconcertingly diverse in both space and time, until we realise that its contents, however selective, nicely match Frobenius’ South-Erythraean culture area, which he saw originating in ancient Mesopotamia (with possible extensions towards Dilmun / Bahrayn and the Indus civilisation) and extending south of the Red (= Erythraean) sea to the East African coast and South Central Africa, where the southwestern fringe of the complex would encompass the Nkoya culture of Zambia.

Experts look to Australia's Aborigines for weather help
Wednesday, March 19, 2003 Posted: 12:16 AM EST (0516 GMT)
SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) When the bearded dragon lizard sits upright and points its head to the sky, it is going to rain the next day. If a flock of currawongs flies overhead you've only got four hours to get the washing off the line.
If the queen wattle blooms heavily, bull ants abandon their tree nests for mounds of dirt, or meat ants cover nests with tiny, heat-reflecting quartz stones, then bushfires are coming.
Sounds like mumbo-jumbo?
Not to Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, which hopes to tap into the tens of thousands of years of Aboriginal weather knowledge to help it expand its understanding of the island continent's harsh climate.
Aboriginal ideas about the weather can be starkly different.
Unlike the conventional European notion of four seasons summer, autumn, winter and spring Aborigines in different parts of Australia count as little as two or as many as six, each intimately linked to subtle changes in the local environment.
"The bureau comes from a purely Western scientific meteorology perspective. It is something entirely new for a weather bureau to recognize the importance of this other weather knowledge," said bureau forecaster John O'Brien.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC RECORD The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. African languages geographic rather than linguistic classification of languages spoken on the African continent. Historically the term refers to the languages of sub-Saharan Africa, which do not belong to a single family, but are divided among several distinct linguistic stocks. It is estimated that more than 800 languages are spoken in Africa; however, they belong to comparatively few language families. Some 50 African languages have more than half a million speakers each, but many others are spoken by relatively few people. Tonality is a common feature of indigenous African languages. There are usually two or three tones (based on pitch levels rather than the rising and falling in inflections of Chinese tones) used to indicate semantic or grammatical distinction.

    Encyclopedia: African languages
    Updated 228 days 2 hours 27 minutes ago. Other descriptions of African languages The term African languages refers to the approximately 1800 languages spoken in Africa . Some African languages, such as Swahili Hausa , and Yoruba , are spoken by millions of people. Others, such as Laal Shabo , and Dahalo are spoken by a few hundred or fewer. In addition, Africa has a wide variety of sign languages , many of whose genetic classification has yet to be worked out. Several African languages are also whistled for special purposes. The abundant linguistic diversity of many African countries has made language policy an extremely important issue in the neo-colonial era. In recent years, African countries have become increasingly aware of the value of their linguistic inheritance. Language policies that are being developed nowadays are mostly aimed at

People of Africa Africa was the birthplace of the human species between 8 million and 5 million years ago. Today, the vast majority of its inhabitants are of indigenous origin. People across the continent are remarkably diverse by just about any measure: They speak a vast number of different languages, practice hundreds of distinct religions, live in a variety of types of dwellings, and engage in a wide range of economic activities. Over the centuries, peoples from other parts of the world have migrated to Africa and settled there. Historically, Arabs have been the most numerous immigrants. Starting in the 7th century ad , they crossed into North Africa from the Middle East, bringing the religion of Islam with them. A later movement of Arabs into East and Central Africa occurred in the 19th century. Europeans first settled in Africa in the mid-17th century near the Cape of Good Hope, at the southern end of the continent. More Europeans immigrated during the subsequent colonial period, particularly to present-day South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Algeria. South Asians also arrived during colonial times. Their descendants, often referred to as Indians, are found largely in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa. A.

Coffee, cotton, tobacco, cloves, tea, cashews, and sisal made up the bulk of exports. Main imports were petroleum, machinery, transportation equipment, iron and steel and other metals, and food and live animals. Principal trading partners for exports are Germany, Japan, India, the United Kingdom, Rwanda, and The Netherlands; chief partners for imports are the United Kingdom, Kenya, Japan, China, and India. Considerable foreign exchange is also derived from tourists, some 447,000 of whom visited Tanzania in 1998. Tanzania Communications Back to Top

    Tanzania Culture Back to Top Olduvai Gorge, in the Great Rift Valley, is the site of the find of some of the earliest known remains of human ancestry, dating back 1,750,000 years. The ancient in-migration of Cushitic, Nilotic, and Bantu peoples, displacing the native San-type population, resulted in a complex agglomeration of tribal communities practicing complementary forms of pastoral and agricultural livelihoods. In the last 500 years, Portuguese, Arab, Indian, German, and British traders and colonists have added to the mosaic. Today Tanzania's multiethnic and multiracial population practices a mixture of traditions and customs that form a valuable cultural heritage.

    Tanzania - History
    Back to Top
    When you consider that mankind's birthplace may have been centered somewhere in northern Tanzania it's evident that there is a long human history there. Archaeologists have discovered the fossils of several types of manlike creatures called Australopithecine's in the Olduvai Gorge just North West of Mount Kilimanjaro. Scientists believe these creatures lived as long as 4 million years ago. Tanzania's first mainland inhabitants had established themselves as early as 3000 to 5000 years ago. It's safe to assume that the inhabitants were there prior to the above dates, since knowledge of the inhabitants comes mainly from remnants of ancient Stone Age sites that have been researched. What researchers do know is that these early settlers were hunters and gatherers who spoke Khoisan. Around 1000 B.C. people speaking the Cushitic language began to settle from Ethiopia and Somalia. These people brought cattle and knowledge of stone tools and settled in the Northern Regions.
    Bantu speaking people began migrating into Tanzania around 500 AD, possibly from West Africa. These people were farmers of vegetables, millet and sorghum and brought with them iron implements. New arrivals such as the Maasai possibly took place around the 12th and 18th centuries.
