Ngas Language Shik Ngas : Fundamentals of Grammar - Texts - Dictionary (Hardcover) (Miroslava
About this item
The Ngas (Angas) language is spoken by some 400,000 people on the southern escarpment of the central Nigerian Plateau (Plateau State). The historically innovative language of the Chadic Angas-Sura group together with the neighbouring more archaic Ron languages are the southwesternmost representatives of the Afroasiatic/Hamitosemitic phylum to which also Arabic and Ancient Egyptian belong. Ngas, a tone language with three levels, has still preserved the classical pronominal system. The book presents a detailed outline of the grammar and a Ngas-English dictionary of some 2,000 lexical entries.
