Bauchi (Bauci, Baushi) is a cluster of Kainji languages spoken in Rafi, Nigeria LGA, Niger State, Nigeria.

Languages

The Baushi languages are (Blench 2012):[4]

  • Samburu
  • Nd?k? (Madaka) - three clans: Undo, Sambora, Jibwa[4]
  • Hup?n? (Supana)
  • Wãyã (Wayam)
  • Rubu
  • Mn

Blench (2018) lists the Baushi languages as Nd?k?, H?p?n, M, Rub, Samburu, and Wãyã.[5]

Phonology

The Bauchi languages have a set of unusual sounds for the area, called "linguo-labials" by Blench. They are similar to the interdental approximants of the Philippines, where the tongue can protrude slightly over the lower lip.
