Notes l This geosector covers 44 sets of languages (237 outer languages, comprising 763 inner languages) spoken by communities across the African continent south of the Sahara, from West Africa to East Africa, and in southwestern Africa. These sets comprise all languages of Africa not covered by phylosectors 1=Afro-Asian, 3=Austronesian, 5=Indo-European and 9=Transafrican. Zones 00= to 07= cover languages spoken in a belt of great linguistic diversity, extending from Senegal to Tanzania: 00= MANDIC phylozone 01= SONGHAIC phylozone 02= SAHARIC phylozone 03= SUDANIC phylozone 04= NILOTIC phylozone 05= EAST-SAHEL geozone 06= KORDOFANIC phylozone 07= RIFT-VALLEY geozone Zones 08= to 09= cover languages spoken in Southwestern Africa, in and around the Kalahari desert: 08= KHOISANIC phylozone 09= KALAHARI geozone Languages of zones 00= and 01= have constituted a "Mande+ Songhai" hypothesis, and languages of zones 01= to 05= have constituted an overlapping "Nilo-Saharan" hypothesis. Languages of zones 00= and 06= have been included in the "Congo-Kordofanian" or "new Niger-Congo" hypothesis (together with languages of phylosector 9=), and languages of zones 08= (as "Central Khoisan") and 09= (as "North Khoisan" plus "South Khoisan") have constituted the major part of a "wider Khoisan" hypothesis.

Notes l covers the "Rift-Valley" reference area (composed of sets not covered by any phylozone); comprising 4 sets of languages (=7 outer languages) spoken by hunter-gatherer or former hunter-gatherer communities in Northeast Africa, along the Rift Valley: 07-A ONGOTA 07-B ICIE+ SO 07-C HADZA 07-D SANDAWE Set 07-A has a hypothetical link to languages in the 1=Afro-Asian phylosector. Set 07-B forms part of the "East Sudanic" hypothesis (with languages in zones 04= and 05=). Sets 07-C and 07-D are parts of the "wider Khoisan" hypothesis (with languages in zones 08= and 09=).

Notes l This phylosector covers 43 sets of languages (276 outer languages, comprising 683 inner languages) spoken by communities across the northern half of the African continent and in western Asia, constituting the "Afro-Asiatic" or "Hamito-Semitic" intercontinental affinity. The component phylozones are numbered in approximate clockwise order, beginning in Northwest Africa. Zones 10= and 11= cover 2 sets (and nets) of languages spoken or formerly spoken in northern Africa, otherwise known as "Berber" and "Egyptian". Zone 12= covers one set of languages spoken over an extensive area from northwest Africa to southwest and central Asia and northeast Africa: 10=TAMAZIC 11=COPTIC 12=SEMITIC Zones 13= to 16= cover 16 sets of languages spoken in northeast Africa, formerly classified together as "Cushitic". There is now evidence to suggest that the languages of Zone 13= (formerly "North Cushitic") and =16 (formerly "West Cushitic"), and probably also Zone 15= (formerly "South Cushitic" or "Paracushitic"), are more safely treated as separate components of the Afro-Asiatic affinity, and the term "Cushitic" is here restricted to the Central and Eastern languages (in Zone 14=) of a "wider Cushitic" hypothesis: 13=BEJIC phylozone 14=CUSHITIC phylozone 15=EYASIC phylozone 16=OMOTIC phylozone Zones 17= to 19= cover 24 sets of languages spoken in parts of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria, constituting three groupings within a wider "Chadic" affinity, which itself forms the most complex component of the Afro-Asiatic intercontinental affinity: 17=CHARIC phylozone 18=MANDARIC phylozone 19=BAUCHIC phylozone Languages in zones 11= and 12=, and also 10=, were of particular importance in the early development of writing.

Notes l This gesector covers 35 sets of languages (= 219 outer languages, comprising 680 inner languages) spoken by communities across Eurasia, from western Europe to eastern Asia. These sets comprise all indigenous languages of Eurasia (Europe plus continental Asia, including the islands of India and Japan) which are excluded from the phylosectors 1=Afro-Asian, 5=Indo-European and 7=Sino-Tibetan. Zone 40= covers one outer-language, spoken from the Bay of Biscay in Western Europe, astride the western Pyrenees mountains, and zones 41= and 42= cover languages spoken in central and eastern Europe, including the Caucasus. 40=EUSKARIC phylozone 41=URALIC phylozone 42=CAUCASUS geozone Zones 43= to 45= cover northern and central Asia, from Siberia to Turkey and Japan, with some overlap into Europe. Zone 44= corresponds to the area of the "Altaic" hypthesis, and zones 44= and 45= to the "wider Altaic" hypothesis. 43=SIBERIA geozone 44=TRANSASIA geozone 45=EAST-ASIA geozone Zones 46= to 49= cover Southern (including South-east) continental Asia. Zone 46= covers all Southern Asian languages which are not included under the Tai+ Kadi affinity (zone 47=), the Miao+Yao, Hmong+ Mien set (zone 48=) and the Dravidian grouping (zone 49=), or under any phylosector. 46=SOUTH-ASIA geozone 47=DAIC phylozone 48=MIENIC phylozone 49=DRAVIDIC phylozone
