Setswana language overview

Setswana is a Bantu language spoken by about 8.2 million people in Southern Africa, mainly in Botswana and South Africa. It is also known by its native name Setswana, and previously spelled Sechuana in English. It belongs to the Sotho-Tswana branch of Zone S (S.30) within the Niger-Congo language family, and is closely related to the Northern Sotho and Southern Sotho languages, as well as the Kgalagadi language and the Lozi language.

Setswana has 28 consonants and 9 vowels, and uses the Latin alphabet with some special characters. It has three tones: high, mid and low. It is a highly agglutinative language, meaning that it forms words by adding suffixes and prefixes to roots. It also has noun classes, which are marked by prefixes that agree with the verb and other modifiers.

Setswana is an official language of Botswana and South Africa, and a recognised minority language in Namibia and Zimbabwe. It is a lingua franca in Botswana and parts of South Africa, especially North West Province. It has many dialects, such as Rolong, Hurutshe, Kwena, Lete, Melete, Ngwaketse, Ngwatu, Kgatla, Tawana, Tlharo, Tlhaping and others. An urbanised variety, which is partly slang and not the formal Setswana, is known as Pretoria Sotho.

Setswana has a rich oral tradition, with many proverbs, idioms, praise poems and folktales. Some of the famous writers in Setswana include Sol Plaatje, Bessie Head, R.R.R. Dhlomo, C.L.S. Nyembezi and Z.I. Matumo. Setswana literature reflects the culture, history and values of the Batswana people.
