About the Sotho language
The Sotho language, also known as Sesotho or Southern Sotho, is a Bantu language belonging to the Niger-Congo family. Over 4 million people speak it in South Africa and Lesotho, one of the 11 official languages recognised by the South African government. It is closely related to other Bantu languages, such as Tswana, Xhosa, Zulu, Ndebele and Swati. The language has three different dialects: Northern Sotho (Sepedi or Pedi), Southern Sotho (Sesotho) and Western Sotho (Tswana). As a result of colonisation by Dutch settlers in the 17th century, the language has also been influenced by Dutch and English.
Sotho is written using Latin or Sotho orthography, developed in the late 19th century. The Latin orthography is used mainly for teaching, while the Sotho orthography is used in literature and publishing. In both cases, diacritic marks are necessary to indicate tones and other pronunciations of words.
There are five primary tones in the Sotho language: high, low, rising, falling-rising and falling. Diacritical marks above certain consonant vowels indicate these tones. There are also several clicks that speakers can use to add emphasis to their speech.
The language also has several compound verb forms that indicate the time or manner of action and a wide variety of noun prefixes and suffixes that can be used to modify the meaning of words.
Many linguists consider the Sotho language to be highly sophisticated and complex. Despite its complexity, it is still widely spoken throughout South Africa and Lesotho.
