 Afro-Asiatic languages - LearnThis.Info Enclyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Ongota language is considered to be Afro-Asiatic, but its classification within the family remains controversial (partly for lack of data.)
The Semitic languages are the only Afro-Asiatic subfamily based outside of Africa; however, in historical or near-historical times, some Semitic speakers crossed from South Arabia back into Ethiopia, so some modern Ethiopian languages (such as Amharic) are Semitic rather than belonging to the substrate Cushitic or Omotic groups.
In his landmark classification of African languages, Joseph H. Greenberg (1950) rejected the idea of a "Hamitic" subgroup (as some, notably Marcel Cohen, had done previously), added Chadic, and proposed the new name Afro-Asiatic; his classification of it came to be almost universally accepted.

The Ababda (the Gebadei of Pliny, probably the Troglodytes of classical writers), are a nomad tribe of African Bedouins, a subgroup of the Beja people; some still speak the Cushitic Beja language, while others speak Arabic.
In the middle ages they were known as Beja, and convoyed pilgrims from the Nile valley to Aidhab, the port of embarkation for Jedda.
The Ababda of Nubia, reported by Joseph von Russegger, who visited the country in 1836, to number some 40,000, have since diminished, having probably amalgamated with the Bisharin, their hereditary enemies when they were themselves a powerful nation.
