Comments on subclassification

Benton, Philip A. 1912

AES status:
Ngala (NOCODE_Ngala-Barth-NOCODE_Ngala-Barth) = 10 (Extinct).

The Ngala language of Lake Chad, as documented in a wordlist by Barth ( Benton, Philip A. 1912 , von Duisburg, Adolf 1914 ), is missing from E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24/E25/E26. It is clearly of the Kotoko group of Chadic, closest to Makari (= Mpade [mpi]) and Goulfey (= Malgbe [mxf]) but is as different from both as Makari and Goulfey are from each other ( Sölken, Heinz 1958 , Migeod, F. W. H. 1922 ). See also: Malgbe [mxf], Mpade [mpi].
