Kar is a member of the Senufo branch of the Atlantic-Congo language family. It has about 35,000 speakers in the southwest of Burkina Faso, particularly in the town of Tiéfora in Comoé Province.
Kar is also known as Eastern Karaboro, Karaboro, Karaborro, Ker or Kler. Native speakers call it kar or kái yor, and call themselves Kai. It is closely related to Western Karaboro, which is also spoken in Burkina Faso.
Kar is traditionally an oral language. Ways to write it with the Latin alphabet were developed in the 1970s.
