Bamileke

Map of South Africa

Bamileke is a group of languages spoken by the Bamileke in the western grasslands of Cameroon. The languages, which might constitute two branches of Eastern Grassfields, are from Western Bamileke: Məgaka, Ngombale, Ngomba, and the 'Bamboutos' dialect cluster of Yɛmba, Ngyɛmbɔɔŋ, and Ŋwe. From Eastern Bamileke: Fe’fe? Ghɔmálá? Kwa? Nda’nda? Mədʉmba.

Bamileke is not currently taught on the IU campus, but we do have access to archived materials.
