Kemant is a dialect of West Agau, which together with its sister languages (North, East and South Agau) forms the central group of Cushitic languages. Nowadays West Agau is spoken only in some regions of Chilga. Among the approximately 172,000 speakers of Agau there remain only about 1,600 native speakers and about 3,500 using Agau as a second language. Because of its decades of contact with the Amharic language dominant in Ethiopia it is today considered an endangered language. The present book is separated into five chapters. The fist chapter discusses the findings of recent studies on language death and endangered languages, while the second provides the historical, political, economical and social background that led to the substitution of Kemant by Amharic. The third chapter is a socio-linguistic analysis of the language behaviour of the contemporary speakers of Kemant and details their sense of identity. Drawing on known case studies from Africa the possibility of resurrecting the language is discussed. The fourth chapter describes the vocabulary of Kemant, studying both ongoing and already finished linguistic phenomenons, E.g. the substitution of proper names and toponyms, whereas the fifth contains a grammatical analysis of Kemant, dealing with various areas of language structure (phonology, morphology and syntax). The summary enlarges on the present socio-linguistic and linguistic situation of Kemant and points to the future research possibilities of this particular endangered language. - ACCOMPANYING MATERIAL: A Comparative Dictionary of the Agaw Languages (ISBN 978-3-89645-481-2) - REVIEWS: "Zelealem's "Kemantney Language" represents an important component of the Kemant's cultural heritage and is an excellent description of the historical and sociolinguistic development of a language which probably will disappear in its spoken form in the near future."

Wild Plant Nomenclature and Traditional Botanical Knowledge among Three Ethnolinguistic Groups in Northwestern Ethiopia, Botanists study plants. Ethnologists study ethnic groups including their language. Ethnobotany is an interface between botany and ethnology dealing with the perception of ethnic groups about plant life surrounding them. Language, as the mirror of the mind of speakers, is central in ethnobotanical studies. This work describes the linguistic properties of wild plant names and traditional botanical knowledge among three ethnolingistic groups in northwestern Ethiopia: Awi, Gumuz and Shinasha. The ethnolingistic groups speak Awni (Cushitic), Gumuz (Nilo-Saharan) and Shinasha (Omotic) languages, respectively. The purpose of this study is to document the names and uses of wild plants from three ethnolinguistic communities of Ethiopia: the Awi (A), Gumuz (G), and Shinasha (S) - henceforth AGS. The study also attempts to describe the traditional botanical knowledge (henceforth TBK of these groups in the identification and classification of their plant life. Taschenbuch, 14.05.2011.
