Kpelle is a language spoken in Liberia and Ivory Coast. It is a member of the Mande family of languages. Kpelle has three main dialects: Gbele, Gule, and Nyewe. There are about 1.5 million Kpelle speakers.
The Kpelle language is tonal, meaning that the pitch of a word can change its meaning. For example, the word moo can mean either "cow" or "milk". Kpelle also has a system of social registers, which are different ways of speaking that are used in different social situations.
Kpelle is a mostly oral language, but there is a growing body of written materials in the language, including a dictionary, a grammar book, and a number of books for children.
