About Proto-Marigan

Proto-Marigan ( Proto-Marigan: [marig͡ɣʱa])

Proto-Marigan is the ancestor of all Marigan languages, having been spoken roughly ~4 kya ago.

The original urheimat for the language is thought to have been located on the coast of Southern or Eastern Africa. It is believed that the Marigans are descendants of Nilotic peoples who may have journeyed from modern-day Kenya and South Sudan in search of new pastures.
The Marigan peoples then split into three groups - titled Central Marigans, Eastern or Southern Marigans and Western or Northern Marigans - roughly ~2.5 kya ago, possibly due to pressure from the Bantu tribes who began to conquer vast swathes of Africa - the Western and Central Marigans migrated to the southernmost reaches of South Africa, whereas the Eastern Marigans crossed the Mozambique Channel and inhabited Europa Island and modern-day Madagascar before further migrations took place.

Proto-Marigan is thought to have a large phonemic inventory, and like her descendants, Proto-Marigan is an analytic language.
