Abstract

The greater part of Pazande speaking territory is located quite far away from the major swahilophone territories and most speakers of Zande have never been in close contact with speakers of Kiswahili. Only when Tippu Tip reached the north-east of present DR Congo and got a political position of power, the Zande came into contact with Kiswahili. This contact was not intense and there are so few Kiswahili loanwords in Zande, that this has never been a topic of research. The existence of such loanwords is, however, a matter of fact, e.g. kiti 'chair'. Some of the loanwords may have entered the language via Lingala or its variant Bangala.
