Macro-Khoisan etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Khoisan : *CUm
Meaning : shadow
Proto-Bushman : *sum
Proto-Khoe : *sóm̀
Sandawe : *|ʔõ (?)
Notes : The antiquity of the South Khoisan root depends on whether |Xam dum 'shadow' belongs together with the rest of the forms. The Sandawe parallel is weak (we would not expect a glottalized click to develop into plain *s-).
