Excerpt from Grammatik des Otjiherero: Nebst Wörterbuch
Das Otjiherero, Sprache der Herero (0vaherero), ist der südwestlichste Zweig jener Sprachenfamilie, für welche der identify Bantu-Sprachen (d. h. wörtlich Menschen-Sprachen) jetzt ziemlich allgemein im Gebrauch ist. Die dieser Familie angehörenden Sprachen zählen zu Hunderten. Im deutschen West-, Südwestund zero stafrika, bei den Kakfernstämmen in Südostafrika, sowie bei den Völkerschaften Mittelafrikas stossen wir auf Zweige dieses ausgedehnten Sprachbaumes.
Diese Sprachen sind unter einander zum Theil nahe verwandt, jedoch nicht so nahe, dass die hier und da gehörte Bezeichnung Lingua Bantu für die Gesamtheit derselben gerechtfertigt erscheinen konnte. Nicht um eine Sprache mit Dialekten, sondern um eine Familie mit verschiedenen Sprachen handelt es sich. Diese Sprachen stehen in einem ähnlichen Verwandtschaftsverhältnis Zu einander wie beispielsweise Deutsch, Hollandisch, Dänisch und Englisch.
Das 0tjiherero ist die Sprache der Herero, wird aber auch von Völkerschaften, welche nördlich vom Hereroland wohnen und gewöhnlich unter dem Gesamtnamen Ovambo zusammengefasst werden, zum Teil verstanden und gesprochen.
Statt Herero wäre richtig zero vaherero zu schreiben. Herero ist, ebenso wie Bantu, überhaupt kein Wort, sondern nur der Stamm, aus welchem ein Wort (Substantiv, Adjektiv, Verbum) gebildet werden kann.
