Dazawa or Daza is listed by Blench (2006) as a Chadic language within the Bole group.[1] It is allegedly[by whom?] spoken in a few villages of Darazo LGA, Bauchi State, Nigeria.[3][dead link] Glottolog (2017) lists the language as "unattested". Newman (2019) lists Daza as a possible synonym of Bole.[4]
