Bravanese language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

Origin and History

Bravanese is a variety of Swahili spoken by the Bravanese people, who are the prevalent inhabitants of Barawa, or Brava, in Somalia, also known as Chimwiini or Chimbalazi (Chimini, Miini, Mwini). It is considered a distinct dialect by Maho (2009). It is known as the Swahili Northern Dialect.

The Bravanese, as their name suggests, come from Brava (Barawa), a port city on the southeastern coast of Somalia.

Chi-is a prefix denoting "language" and the alternate name of Barawa is Miini, the Bravanese people themselves will never refer to the region as Barawa or Brava, but as Miini. Chimini is a standard version of the original Bravanese language called Chambalazi. Italian and Arabic are used in the standard Chimini language. Chambalazi includes some of the earliest vocabulary and dialects in Swahili, it continued to develop over time and other ethnicity and languages became intermixed. The language of Barawa is over 1000 years old, and about 30,000 Bravanese are still spoken today, thanks to the protection of the language by the early Barawa scholars.

Because of the key coastal position of Barawa, Bravanese may have once acted as a regional lingua franca. Morphological reduction provides one piece of linguistic support for this.

The most diverse area in Somalia is Barawa. The people of this coast of Banadir have been mingling for hundreds of years with people from all over the world. Barawa was geographically positioned for trading because of its location and isolation from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and surrounding islands, while people often exchanged opinions, expertise, other experience and culture. Various Arabians (in particular: the Egyptians, Yemenis and Omani); South Asians (mainly Indians); and Persian merchants and Somalis trace their roots to the regional population. Many people in Bravana appear to look physically different from most other Somali people. Their culture, food and music mimic those of the other islands of East Africa and the people of Swahili. Haatim, Biido and Ashraf are locally known as "3 Tol" to the Bravanese people. Bravanese individuals consist of Haatim, Biida, and Asharaf, according to a lot of accounts.

Countries spoken

Because of the current Somali Civil War, in areas such as Columbus and Atlanta in the United States, London and Manchester in the United Kingdom, and Mombasa, Kenya, most speakers have fled the country and are dispersed worldwide in ex-refugee immigrant groups. Ethnologue classifies its language status as emerging in Somalia.
