With the proportion of lexicon shared with Kaki Ae, the semantic fields, metalinguistic awareness, relevant sociolinguistic facts favour a borrowing scenario John M. Clifton 1997: 33-34 . The so-called sound shifts alluded to by Franklin, Karl J. 1995 are, in fact, perfectly predictable loan renderings given the phonemic systems of Eleman (which has no n/l/r-phonemic distinction) and Kaki Ae (which has no t/k distinction).

AES status:
