Lexical similarity with Rangi[edit]

My name is Vera Wilhelmsen and I am doing a PhD on the Mbugwe language. I changed the words about sharing only half of the vocabulary with Rangi, because even in the SIL survey that figure is taken form, there is a comment that the right percentile is more likely in the 70s, which Masele and Nurse found in their survey. I don't know how to add a reference, it is Masele, Balla F. Y. P. & Derek Nurse (2003). Stratigraphy and prehistory: Bantu zone F. In Andersen, H. (Ed), Language contacts in prehistory: studies in stratigraphy. Papers from the workshop on linguistic stratigraphy and prehistory at the fifteenth international conference on historical linguistics, Melbourne, 17 August 2001, Amsterdam & Philadelphia : John Benjamins Publishing Co.., pp. 115-134. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.215.108.43 (talk) 13:48, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi Vera,
Good! We need more descriptions of TZ langs. As for adding refs, just under your edit window (below the 'save page' button), you'll see a line of clickable symbols. One of them will be <ref></ref>, and you can put the ref in the middle of that. If it doesn't show up properly at the bottom, check another article, or just leave it and in a couple days a bot will fix it up for you. — kwami (talk) 16:49, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
