Elongated East African is a morphological tendency, you know nothing about bioanthropology. The Elongated features[linear body build, narrow nose, narrow head] of some East Africans is a climatic response to a hot dry environment. Thats all it refers to. I'm not wasting my time trying to further enlighten you.
"I'm not mixing anything and there is no such thing as linguistic anthropology, just linguistics."
I must conclude that as a student of anthropology you are quite limited and narrow minded within one specific discipline.
Thw Society for linguistic Anthropology was founded in 1983 to advance the study of language in its social and cultural context and to encourage communication of the results of such study. The SLA publishes the Journal of Linguistic Anthropology.
Linguistic Anthropology is primarily concerned with the causes and social meanings of language variation within societies and the sociohistorical development of different languages and linguistic varieties.
My daughter currently is an african-american studies major at Emory University which has a distinguished linguistic anthropology program.
So, your statement that "there is no such thing" is utter nonsense.
