Chinyanja/Chewa[edit]

Not sure why, but Chinyanja seems to have been left off the list. Variant of Chichewa in Malawi, spoken in Tete, Zambezia, and Niassa provinces. The Ethnologue lists 599,000 speakers in Mozambique. http://www.ethnologue.com/country/MZ/languages — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.220.40.14 (talk) 12:19, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

An article of interest for anyone who wants to write more on this topic is: Lopes, Armando Jorge. 1998. "The Language Situation in Mozambique." Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, Vol. 19, No. 5&6 http://www.multilingual-matters.net/jmmd/019/0440/jmmd0190440.pdf --A12n 22:14, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Did some editing and restructuring. Hopefully this will help.--A12n 17:12, 2 April 2007 (UTC) It indeed helps. Just one point: the children of "creole" speaking Indians practically never maintain the alnguage of their parents. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.136.189.1 (talk) 18:54, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

There was a census in 2007. It would be worthwhile trying to find more recent language data: http://www.ine.gov.mz/censo2007/ Lingamish (talk) 08:07, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
