Abstract: This study seeks to apply a method employing linguistic tools in addition to other historical methods in order to reconstruct the early history of the Eastern Horn. In particular, it attempts to improve upon previous descriptive/ethnographic works by analyzing the several strata present in the Somali lexicon from the perspective of the dichotomy between intrinsic and borrowed elements.

Questo studio cerca di applicare un metodo che impiega strumenti linguistici insieme ad altri metodi storici per ricostruire l'antica storia del Corno d'Africa. In particolare, tenta di migliorare i precedenti lavori descrittivi/etnografici analizzando i diversi strati presenti nel lessico somalo dal punto di vista della dicotomia tra elementi intrinsechi e quelli presi in prestito.
