|xam dialects ('Berg Bushmen' and 'River Bed people')


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


Regarding some Bushman dialects. By lhan≠kass’o (L VIII.-19. 7672-7675). |han≠kass'o comments on his understanding of other |xam dialects, spoken by 'Berg (Mountain) Bushmen' and 'River Bed people'. He can understand their language (≠kakken-≠kakken) even when it is different, because they are his fellows. The language spoken by another group (the |ke |ke ||en) resembles that spoken by the Nama.
