Ogoni / Kegboid

The Ogoni languages, or Kegboid languages, are the five languages of the Ogoni people of Rivers State, Nigeria.

They fall into two clusters, with a limited degree of mutual intelligibility between members of each cluster. However, the Ogoni think of them as separate languages.

The Eastern languages are Khana and Tẹẹ, with about half a million or so speakers, and Gokana, with about half that number.

The Western languages are Eleme, with about 70,000 speakers, and Baan, with about a quarter that number.
