Mabire: A Dying Language of Chad

"The last few speakers of Mabire, a Chadic language of central Chad, provide information on the decline of the Mabire community, the origins of their people and language, and word list data. Based on the analysis of the word list, as well as the origin myths retold, it is suggested that the Mabire language be classified in the Dangla group of Eastern Chadic, along with Dangaleat (Dangla), and Migaama (Migama)."
