Classification and DialectsEdit

Mbaali (pronounced /ba:li/ in English) is spoken by roughly 40 million people in Bidesh (/bɪdɛsk/) and is the official language of Bidesh. It is also spoken by a significant minority in the Jeeskambi Provence of Herestai. It is a member of the Alaqoin language family. It is normally classified into three dialects: North, South and Capital. These are differentiated by variation in phonology, particular the nasal plosives, which Capital Mbaali has none. Numerous colloquial varieties also exist.
