Language Najamba

edited by Heath, Jeffrey and Moran, Steven

Najamba-Kindige (exonym Bondu So) is a Western Dogon language and is thought to be a single language with much dialectal diversity, but Kindige has not yet been studied in depth. Najamba is the local name for the language in several villages in a large canyon beginning just east of Douentza and ending at the huge central Dogon plateau (e.g. Kubewel, Adia). Kindige is an informal local name for the dialects spoken along the highway running west from Douentza (separated from Najamba by a long inselberg and then by the plateau) and into the high plateau including the Borko area.
