Additional background on Bete

The Bete language of Nigeria is a nearly extinct language spoken by a small minority of the 3,000 inhabitants of Bete Town, Takum Local Government Authority, Taraba State; its speakers have mostly shifted to Jukun. It is reported to have been close to Lufu and Bibi. It belongs in the Jukunoid subfamily of Niger-Congo, according to the Vienna Yukuben Project and the Ethnologue (15th ed.), though the latter formerly listed it as unclassified.

It is not to be confused with the Bété language of Côte d'Ivoire.
