Next Map >

Shona (chiShona) is spoken by 8 to 9 million people, the vast majority living in Zimbabwe. There are also Shona-speaking populations in southern Zambia and Botswana.

A linguist, Clement Doke, is credited with the recommendation of a unified Shona language from several dialects in a report in 1931.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Shona as a first language that live in that territory.
