about

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.
Herrmann Jungraithmayr is professor emeritus of the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Miroslava Holubová was scientific assistant at the Goethe University until 2010.
