BagaInformation about the Baga
Four of the five varieties still spoken are sometimes considered dialects of one language, Baga or Barka. The name is derived from the phrase bae raka, 'people of the seaside'. Landoma is classified as a Baga language, but is somewhat more distantly related to the other four languages. The Baga languages are related to Temne, one of the four official languages of Sierra Leone; together, Baga and Temne belong to the Mel branch of the Southern Atlantic languages.
