Chichewa is an eastern Bantu language spoken in Malawi, primarily in the
Kasungu, Dowa, and Lilongwe districts. It is also known as Nyanja because
of its ethnic and linguistic ties with the Nyanja people. Typical of Bantu
languages, Chichewa is tonal with a CV syllable structure, five vowels, and
approximately forty consonant sounds. It has an extensive noun class system
distinguished by noun prefixes with an accompanying concord system. Its
verbal system marks tense and aspect by infixes, tone, and auxiliaries. The
passive, stative, causative, reciprocal, and applicative are verbal
suffixes. Wh-questions are clefts and relative clauses are marked either
by relative pronouns or tones. In recent years, Chichewa has been a rich
source of study syntactically for its use of locatives, morphologically for
its ideophones, and phonologically for its prosody and phrase structure.
