Boor (also known as Bwara, Damraw) is an endangered Afro-Asiatic language spoken in southern Chad.[1] The language has less than 100 native speakers worldwide. [3]

Regions where the language is spoken include southern Chad, the Bousso Subprefecture, Sarh Rural Subprefecture, and in and around the Dumraw village on the north bank of the Chari River.

Due to the locations of the regions in which the language is spoken, native speakers of Boor commonly speak the Bagirmi language as well.[4]
