Les langues parlées par les groupes pygmées du bassin Equatoriale de la R.D. du Congo

Abstract : This paper evaluates the linguistic situation of different Pygmy groups of the Congo Basin. These are languages spoken in the forest below the curve of the Congo River and South of the Sankuru River in the Kuba territory and East to the Lomami River in the Tetela country. This study mainly focuses on four different groups: the Batswa living in the Western part of the Mongo domain, the Cwa living among the Kuba, the Bafoto living close Lisala near the Congo River and the Djofe living in the region of Ikela. The affinities and differences between languages are deduced from various sources: basic and specialized lexicons of languages from the Bantu C zone, fieldworks notes from various sources, data of the dialectological situation of the region, a comparison between lexicons of languages spoken by pygmies and languages spoken by their neighbors.
