Hornemann's Siwi wordlist

Friedrich Hornemann visited Siwa in 1798, and recorded the first surviving word list for the language.  As you will see from my annotations (between slashes or square brackets; /ay/ = [e], /e/ = [ə]), the words he recorded have changed little since.

pp. 66-70:

"Siwah is a small independent state; it acknowledges, indeed, the grand Sultan paramount, but it  pays him no tribute. Round its chief town called Siwah, are situated at one or two miles distance, the villages of Scharkie, (in Siwahan dialect termed Agrmie /Aγụrm°i/, Msellem, Menschie, Sbocha, and Bourischa...

"The language of Siwah, whatever words or expressions may have crept in, from various intercourse of people, is not fundamentally Arabic; and this has led me to various conjectures.  At first I looked for the root or origin of this language to the East; but on maturer consideration, and from communications with one of the Tuaricks from Twat, with whom I was in habits of intimacy, I am now satisfied of my former error, and that the language of Siwah is a dialect of that used throughout the great nation of Africa, to which my friend, the Tuarick, belonged, and which may be considered as the aboriginal.

"The larger collection of Siwahan words, which I had first made, was lost with other papers, by an accident which I shall hereafter have occasion to mention.

"The following list I had from a man of Siwah, whom I afterwards got acquainted with at Augila.
