"The term Baoulé is applied to a number of tribes, including one
named Baoulé, who live east of the Bandama River in Ivory
.   With more than 800,000 speakers, Baoulé is the most
commonly spoken language of the Ivory Coast, excluding the
composite total of the Twi languages.   A Kwa language, related
to Agni, Baoulé includes the tribal dialects of the Bonna,
Moronu, Nganu, Ndame, Wure, and others.   The Baoulé New
Testament was the first to be published in a language of the
Ivory Coast."
