Idomoid languages

Central Nigeria, lower reaches of the Benue River
Linguistic classification: Niger–Congo
  • Yace
  • Etulo–Idoma
Ethnologue code: 17-1995

The Idomoid languages are spoken in central Nigeria. Idoma itself is an official language spoken by nearly a million people, and Igede by about a quarter million.


  • Yace (Akpa)
  • Etulo–Idoma

Ethnologue includes Eloyi, though that assignment is outdated. (See Plateau languages.) They also call the non-Yace branch "Akweya" despite the fact that Yace also goes by that name.
