Comments on family membership

Kru lacks sufficient lexical resemblances and noun class resemblances to conclude a relationship with Atlantic-Congo Tom Güldemann 2018: 178-179 , 232-234, 353-358. Regarding Siamou, as Prost Prost, André 1964: 345 noted, apart from obvious loanwords, Siamou is neither Mande nor Gur. Contra Person, Yvonne 1966 , although there are typological matches, Siamou differs from Kru throughout the comparison, and Siamou can thus not be verified as a Kru language Zogbo, Lynell Marchese 2012 Tom Güldemann 2018: 177-180 . Aproumu Aizi [ahp]: Marchese, Lynell and Hook, Ann 1983 Ahaté, Tamala Louise 2018 does not seem to be a Kru language (I wish to thank Roger Blench for highlighting the divergent nature of this language).
