Mediak (mwx-mwx) = 7 (Shifting).

E16/E17/E18/E19 has three entries for Dorobo&#39;&#39; (hunter-gatherers in the vicinity of Maasailand) languages close to Okiek <a href="">[oki]</a> namely Mediak <a href="">[mwx]</a>, Kisankasa <a href="">[kqh]</a> and Mosiro <a href="">[mwy]</a>. But our only source on Mediak <a href="">[mwx]</a> and Kisankasa <a href="">[kqh]</a> saysThe three names [Mediak, Mosiro and Kisankasa -- HH] given above would seem to denote one and the same type of Dorobo. I have been unable to discover any difference between them.'' ( Maguire, R. A. J. 1928: 134 ), so two of the three entries are spurious. See also: Okiek [oki], Akie [mwy], Kisankasa [kqh].
