Grammatical Sketch of Chindali: The Chindali Language of Malawi: Volume 2
Chindali is spoken along the northern border of Malawi and in southwestern Tanzania. There are approximately 70,000 speakers in Malawi and 150,000 speakers in Tanzania. It is classified as M.21 in the Turveren (Bastin 1978) revision of Guthrie’s (1967-70) zone classification. This grammatical sketch represents the language as spoken in the region of northern Malawi. It differs in important ways from the variety spoken in Tanzania, especially in verbal morphology. It also differs from a closely related dialect called Chisukwa, primarily in tone and some sounds, as well as with some verbal conjugations. The Ndali people live in close proximity to the Sukwa people.
