My own work has shown that South Atlantic forms no genetic unity with North Atlantic, even on the geographic and typological criteria typically used to unify the group (Childs 2001 b; Childs 2003c ). These fmdings have recently been integrated into a single representation, as shown in Figure 2. I have included only the top part of the figure down to just beyond Bijogo.

Name' (cf. Kisi: dio) 'regard, look at' Such alternations are common in Mande and even in Northern Branch languages, where consonants often participate in an extensive system of consonant mutation or consonant alternation (see Childs 2003a:73-75). In Kisi there are phonological processes that change  to [d] after a nasal in certain environments but no unconditioned lid alternations. In each case of an lid alternation in Mani, there are clues as to the original or earlier form. In the case of the borrowing, the clue is in the non-variant form in the source language.
