Tshiluba (Luba-Kasai)


Tshiluba (aka Luba-Kasai) is a language spoken by more than six million speakers in Democratic Republic of the Congo.  

The genetic affiliation for this language is complicated, as is true for most Bantoid languages.  The current affiliation as listed in Ethnologue.org is:

Niger-Congo, Atlantic-Congo, Volta-Congo, Benue-Congo, Bantoid, Southern, Narrow Bantu, Central, L, Luba.

It iso-code is: lua

This language is part of a network of closely related languages or dialects.  More information will be forthcoming on this project soon.  We are planning a grammatical description in English, a English-Tshiluba dictionary, and online lexical database.
