Langi is a language spoken in Sudan. It is a member of the Nilo-Saharan family, and is closely related to the Dinka language. It is written using the Latin alphabet. Langi is spoken by the Langi people, who are concentrated in the Sudanese states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile. There are an estimated 1.5 million speakers of the language. The Langi language has a number of dialects, which are not mutually intelligible. The two most commonly spoken dialects are Jikany and Nyangatom. Langi is a tonal language, with a complex system of grammatical gender. It is a subject-verb-object language, and has a system of honorifics which are used to show respect to elders and other authority figures. The Langi language is under threat from the more widely spoken Arabic and Sudanese Arabic languages. In recent years, there has been a decline in the use of Langi, particularly among younger speakers.
