"Zande is spoken by about 750,000 people, two thirds of whom
live in northeastern Congo-Kinshasa, and the rest in adjacent
areas of Sudan.   There are also Zande-speaking tribes (e.g., the
Avongara and Bandiya) in the southeastern part of the Central
African Republic

include numerous tribes of non-Zande origin who were lin-

as Nyamnyam, Zande is classed in the Adamawa-Eastern
