- SPEAKER ATTITUDE
- "In East Africa, the Nubi communities are proud of their language and see it as one of the features of their identity."
- OTHER LANGUAGES USED BY THE COMMUNITY
- LANGUAGE CONTEXT COMMENTS
"... competition with English and Swahili may endanger the use of Kinubi, especially in big cities such as Mombasa and Nairobi, as it did in Tanzania, where it seems that Swahili has replaced Kinubi among the Nubi communities."
- Scripts (Writing system)
- More on Orthography
"Kinubi may be written in Latin script; some Nubi exchange letters and e-mails in their language or use it in the written administration of their cultural organizations, as in Mombasa, for instance. In Bombo (Uganda), Mustafer Khamisy writes poems in Kinubi and distributes them during Nubi cultural events."
