Other comments: Bangime is a language of unknown affiliation or an isolate language. They have single words for 20, 40 and 80. 1000 is expressed by ''one man''. Baŋgi-me is spoken in seven villages east of Karge and reached by turning off the Sevare-Douentza road 38 km, north of Sevare in Northern Mali. The Baŋgime language is presently being transmitted to the children. However, there appears to be a loss of complex vocabulary. For example, the numbers above ten have been replaced in ordinary speech and some lexical items were only recalled by elder speakers. The second language of Baŋgi-me speakers is Niononkhe, the Mande language spoken in Karge. Niononkhe is a dialect of Bozo or Sorko and is referred to as Sɔgɔ Fulfulde, a dominant language in the zone, is known to some individuals and there is a limited amount of French spoken, usually by migrant workers or students. The population of Baŋgi-me speakers is likely to be 2,000-3,000.
