The Congolese Professor Theophile Obenga aided Diop at the UNESCO conference of 1974 in analyzing the Kemetic language with African languages. You can find these proceedings in UNESCO General History of Africa, Vol. II, Abridged Edition: Ancient Africa edited by G. Mokhtar.
"On page 41 of this work, you will find the following where Professor Obenga connects Ancient Egyptian with the Bantu languages. I have highlighted certain parts...
If you read above, you will also see that it was easy to connect Ancient Egyptian/Kemetic/Metu Neter to its African family of languages, just as Latin, English, and French easily fit into the Indo-European family. However, those who claim Egypt as having a Semitic or Berber influence are shown up here. There is no relationship between Egyptian (or other indigenous African languages)and Semitic or Berber languages other than a few hundred words, yet Egyptian has several thousands of words in common with African languages.
This is not to say that Bantu languages came from Egypt, because the languages and civilizations of Nubia (Senmut)and Kush (Wawat) are older than Kemet, and it is obvious that the Kemetic language came from them. This is only further evidence that the Kemetic language is only one fascet of the African family of languages.
The language is similar to those found around Chad and the Horn of Afrika. Some Kemetic words are even found in the Wolof language. For example, "Kem" still means burnt black in Wolof today...."
