Teke–Mbede languages

  (Redirected from Teke–Mbere languages)

Teke–Mbere is a proposed intermediate group of Bantu languages, coded Zone B.50–80 in Guthrie's classification, along with the erstwhile Mbundu language Songo. According to Nurse & Philippson (2003), they are:

Ethnologue suggests that the unclassified Songo "dialect" of Yansi (B.80) may be the same as the Songo here.
