Karaboro, some neighbouring languages and the Senufo language area.

The Karaboro languages are spoken in Burkina Faso by approximately 65 000 people (SIL 1995/1991). They belong to the Senufo subfamily, but are separated from other Senufo languages by a small band of unrelated languages. Within Senufo they are thought to be most closely related to the Senari languages.
