Abstract:

SIL aims to assess optimal groupings for literature development in the Bantu language family. As a start, this report presents a map on the current understanding of the number and location of all Bantu langauges. The map includes groupings based on Guthrie's classic 1948 work which is the standard reference. It also gives an overview of the present knowledge on the relationship between each variety.
