Your talking about us having a problem with some letters in Somali, hell you guys eat up whole words.

Typical walaweyn sentence:

"Xaayoow saas maahoow waa yara nasanaayoo noooh."

Proper Somali:

"Waryeehe sidaas ma'aha ee waan yara nasanayaa."

Qaldaans speak more Arabic than any other somali group/region...thats why when the somali writing was invented it was more conventional to use that of gobolada dhexe...like mudug etc.


Masar
Daaqad
Muqmad
Tariig
Laydh

And many other words are either Arabic or english.

Walaweyn they speak:

Patois, although without a formal definition in linguistics, can be used to describe a language considered as nonstandard. Depending upon the instance, it can refer to jargon or slang, as well as to pidgins, creoles, dialects, and/or other forms of native or local speech. In many cases, class distinctions are drawn between those who speak patois and those who speak the standard or dominant language Laughing Laughing

damn i could barely understand that balaayo kugu dhacdee, yes we do speak standard somali

[som] 7,784,434 in Somalia (2000 WCD). Population total all countries: 12,653,480. Throughout the country. Also spoken in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Finland, Italy, Kenya, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Yemen. Alternate names: Af-Soomaali, Af-Maxaad Tiri, Common Somali, Standard Somali. Dialects: Northern Somali, Benaadir, Af-Ashraaf (Ashraaf). Northern Somali is the basis for Standard Somali. It is readily intelligible to speakers of Benaadir Somali, but difficult or unintelligible to most Maay and Digil speakers. Those in Merka and Muqdisho speak Af-Ashraaf, a distinct variety which may have limited inherent intelligibility to speakers of Standard Somali. Classification: Afro-Asiatic, Cushitic, East, Somali

Laughing shimow, what the hell is that shimow?? in the rest of the world any classical language is the language of poetry and art, even the Arabs would tell you " the language of the Quraan is the classical Arabic of the Badouin poets"

The Walaweyn speake creol Somali , half Baantu/Burtagiis with some Eelaay and Amxaara words like " Cajneero" or "dooro" for chicken which is a pure Amxaara.

The standard classical somali is from the land where 99% of somali poets originated from and almost 99% of all play writers and composeres. The Walaweyn ought to be ashamed of themselves when they claim they speake Somali never mind proper, its like an Indian teaching a Brit guy how to speake proper english
