More on the Fang language

Fang is an important transnational language of western equatorial Africa spoken altogether by
1,080,000 people distributed in southern Cameroon (ca. 110,000), continental Equatorial Guinea
(ca. 575,000), Gabon (374,000), and Congo (Brazzaville) (6,000). It belongs to the subgroup A70
(Beti-Fang, Ewondo-Fang) of the “zone” A of Bantu languages together with four languages
localized in southern Cameroon: Eton (52,000 speakers), Ewondo (578,000 speakers), BebeleBebil
(30,000 speakers) and Bulu(-Bene) (174,000 speakers). The five A70 languages are closely
related on a level of partial mutual intelligibility. The peoples who speak these languages feel as if
they are part of an interethnic entity called bə̀tí (‘lords’)
