One hallmark of the linguistic profile of Central African Rainforest foragers is that they are all assumed to have undergone a shift to languages of agricultural peoples. These belong to the Central Sudanic families Mangbetu-Asua and Mangbutu-Efe, as well as the Niger-Congo families Mundu-Baka (commonly subsumed under a larger Ubangi unit) and Bantoid. In ...
