According to Ethnologue, which I consider one of the best liguistical sources online, the language is *mainly* called Nyankole (there are other names as well), which also makes sense given the "laws" of Bantu languages (perhaps kinyankole). Runyankole is a "standardization of the western languages (Nyankore-Chiga and Nyoro-Tooro)".
Also note the rest of what they write about the language: "Nyankole, Nyoro, and their dialects are considered by some to be one language (78% to 96% lexical similarity). 84% to 94% lexical similarity with Chiga, 75% to 86% with Tooro (Nyoro), 81% with Zinza, 78% with Nyambo, 74% with Haya, 68% with Kerewe. " 
My suggestion: unite this article with the article about Nyankole (not written yet) and with articles about other names of dialects, with redirects if possible.

I should say that Banyankore mainly use the term Runyankole or Runyankore for their language. They NEVER use the word nyankole. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Internationalstudent (talk • contribs) 23:53, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
