Duala, which is known as Douala in French, is a Bantu language spoken in Cameroon by about 87,700 people.
Duala first appeared in writing in 1862 in a translation of the Bible. The orthography was reformed in 1932, and again in 1979 when a common alphabet for the languages of Cameroon (Alphabet Général des Langues Cameroun-aises) was created.
Duala has three tones: a high tone which is marked by by an acute accent; a low tone which is unmarked, and a falling-rising tone which marked by a caron (ˇ). These accents are not always written.
