Comments on family membership

As Prost Prost, André 1964: 345 noted, apart from obvious loanwords, Siamou is neither Mande nor Gur (cf. Swadesh, Morris and Araña, Evangelina and Bendor-Samuel, John Theodor and Wilson, William André Auquier 1966: 32 ). Contra Person, Yvonne 1966 , although there are typological matches, Simaou differs from Kru throughout the comparison, and Siamou can thus not be verified as a Kru language Zogbo, Lynell Marchese 2012 Vogler, Pierre 2015 . It lacks any of the diagnostic features of the Atlantic-Congo family and must thus be regarded as unrelated until such evidence is brought forward Tom Güldemann 2018 .
