Nama is a language spoken in the southern African country of Namibia. It is a member of the Khoisan family of languages, and is closely related to the !Kung and !Xun languages. Nama has around 30,000 speakers, and is one of three official languages of Namibia (along with English and Afrikaans). Nama is a tonal language, meaning that the pitch of a word can change its meaning. For example, the word for "sun" can be said with a high or low pitch, and the two pitches have different meanings. Nama also has a unique writing system, called Tsoa, which uses a combination of symbols to represent words and sounds. The Nama people have a rich culture and history. They are known for their music and dance, as well as their skills in basket-weaving and leatherwork. The Nama people are also known for their hospitality, and for their love of storytelling. If you're interested in learning more about the Nama language and culture, there are a few resources available. The Namibia Language and Culture website offers a brief introduction to the language, as well as links to other resources. The website of the Namibia Tourism Board also has some information about the Nama people and their culture.
