Siswati language overview

Siswati, also known as Swazi, is a Bantu language of the Nguni group spoken in Eswatini and South Africa by the Swati people. It is an official language in both South Africa and Eswatini. The language is taught in Eswatini and some South African schools in Mpumalanga, particularly former KaNgwane areas.

The number of speakers is estimated to be in the region of 2.4 million. Siswati is most closely related to the other Tekela languages, like Phuthi and Northern Transvaal (Sumayela) Ndebele, but is also very close to the Zunda languages: Zulu, Southern Ndebele, Northern Ndebele, and Xhosa.

Siswati spoken in Eswatini can be divided into four dialects corresponding to the four administrative regions of the country: Hhohho, Lubombo, Manzini, and Shiselweni1. Siswati has at least two varieties: the standard, prestige variety spoken mainly in the north, centre and southwest of the country, and a less prestigious variety spoken elsewhere.

In the far south, especially in towns such as Nhlangano and Hlatikhulu, the variety of the language spoken is significantly influenced by isiZulu. Many Swazis, including those in the south who speak this variety, do not regard it as ‘proper’ Swazi. This is what may be referred to as the second dialect in the country.

The sizeable number of Swazi speakers in South Africa (mainly in the Mpumalanga province, and in Soweto) are considered by Eswatini Swazi speakers to speak a non-standard form of the language. Unlike the variant in the south of Eswatini, the Mpumalanga variety appears to be less influenced by Zulu, and is thus considered closer to standard Swazi. However, this Mpumalanga variety is distinguishable by distinct intonation, and perhaps distinct tone patterns.

It’s important to note that Siswati is a tonal language, meaning word meaning can be influenced or even change through the utterance of wrong intonation.
