Ortiz de Montellano, Haslip-Viera and Barbour (1997) argue that there is no linguistic evidence for Pre-Columbian contact between African and Amerind languages. Using comparative and historical linguistic methods the author outlines the evidence from the Otomi and Mayan languages which indicate the borrowing/copying of Manding/Mande lexical items by speakers of these languages in Pre-Columbian times.
