Daza

Daza is a member of the Western Saharan branch of the Nilo-Saharan language family. It is spoken mainly in Chad and Niger by about 380,000 people (in 2007). In Chad it is spoken mainly in the Djurab Desert and Borkou regions in the north of the country. It is also spoken in eastern and northen Niger, and in neighbouring parts of Libya and Sudan, and in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

Daza is also known as Dazaga, Dasa, Dazza, Gouran or Gorane, and has two main dialects: Daza and Kara. Other dialects include Kaga, Kanobo, Taruge and Azza. It is closely related to Tedaga, which is spoken in northern Chad and southern Libya.

Daza is used to some extent in newspapers and radio programmes. There is a Daza dictionary, and parts of the Bible have been translated into the language.
