Its bullshit,there writing somali in a latin script, what went on hundreds of years before, was educated somalis wrote somali using the arabic script, its just a change, nothing to get excited about.

Personally i would have the somalis either create their own script, or adopt the arabic script.

Great video. As one of the speakers said, it's time for us to create an academy for our mother tongue, after all we are the heirs of this royal language. With all the clan bullshit, internal conflicts, language becomes the only factor that truly unites us.

The Somali language is very old and the proto-Somali language even older. The consensus of writing in Arabic started during the introduction of Islam and later on with the muslim sultanates. Prior to those sultanates there wasn't a single Somali soul that wrote in Arabic.

Your comment doesn't make sense. More people use the Latin script and therefore it was a favorable option back in 72. I wouldn't change a thing but knowing Somalis and how they lick hairy Arab ass, I understand why some of you want Arabic script.

Ina Xaydar your point being?, realizing that somalis live lest then 200 miles away from mainland arabia, i would prefer the arabic script, why are we adopting a script belonging to a people we have 0 in common with, whilst the benifits of using the arabic script would be the population would adapt to reading quran easier, wallahi if i was made president of SL this would be a priority for me.

No one's licking no one's arse m8, just use your common sense, our tongue has alot of consonant sounds similar to arabic, and our vocabulary is about 30-40% Arabic, writing in Arabic would save us the stress, our Ethiopian neighbors have their own script, if we can't make our own adapt to the closest one, deen-wise, that's Arabic.

So what if Somalis live 200 miles from the Arabian peninsula? You make it sound like there is an indirect religious obligation that makes the arabic script a favorable option but given the fact that many Somalis are not muslims makes your entire argument invalid.
