Chewa Language Facts:

  • 12 million native speakers
  • Spoken by 0.17% of the world population
  • Mainly spoken in Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Chichewa (Chicheŵa in Malawian English, also known as Cinyanja) is a language of the Bantu language family widely spoken in south-central Africa. The prefix chi-, also spelled ci-, means "language", and hence the language is also known simply as Chewa or Nyanja. Chingoni (Ngoni) and Chikunda (Kunda) are mutually intelligible dialects of the language.

Distribution

Chichewa is one of the two official national languages of the Republic of Malawi, the other being English, and as Cinyanja is one of the seven official tribal languages of Zambia, where it is spoken mostly in the Eastern Province. It is also spoken in Mozambique, especially in the provinces of Tete and Niassa, as well as in Zimbabwe where, according to some estimates, it ranks as the third most widely used local language, after Shona and Ndebele. The countries of Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique constitute the central location of Chichewa.

Both the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran have been translated into the Chichewa language.

History

Chichewa has its origin in the Maravi Empire, which dominated most of present day Malawi and part of Mozambique and Zambia from the 15th century to the 18th century. The language remained dominant despite the breakup of the empire and the Angoni invasions and was adopted by christian missionaries at the beginning of the colonial period.

The Chewa are a tribe found near Lake Malawi, and hence chicheŵa means "the language of the Chewas". In Zambia, where Chewa is also spoken by other tribes like the Ngoni and the Kunda, the more neutral name c(h)inyanja, "language of the lake" (referring to Lake Malawi), is hence used instead.

The first grammar - A grammar of the Chinyanja language as spoken at Lake Nyasa with Chinyanja-English and English-Chinyanja vocabulary was written by Alexander in 1880 and partial translations of the Bible were made at the end of 19th century.
