Ngangela is a standardized mixture of four closely related Bantu languages that serves as one of the national languages of Angola. In that capacity it replaced Mbunda, one of its components. Ngangela was created by the missionary Emil Pearson to allow a single translation of the Bible to serve all four communities, and an Ngangela–English Dictionary was published in 1970. The four constituents of Ngangela are the Chokwe–Luchazi languages Luvale, Luchazi, Mbunda, and Luimbi.
- Ethnologue applies the name "Ngangela" to the Nyemba dialect of Luchazi.
