Yocoboué Dida (Dída)

Yocoboué Dida is a member of the Eastern Kru branch of the Niger-Congo language family. It is spoken in southern Ivory Coast, mainly in and around the town of Guitry in the Gôh-Djiboua district, and in the Tagbo Lagoon in the neighbouring Lagunes district.

There are two dialects of Yocoboué Dida: Lozoua (Lozwa) and Divo. It is closely related to Lakota Dida and Gaɓogbo. Some sources classify all of them as dialects of the Dida language, others classify them as separate languages.

Yocoboué Dida is also known as Dida de Yocoboué or Dída. It is used on the radio and TV and in literature.
