Ewondo is a Bantu language with about half a million speakers in Cameroon. Ewondo has about 100,000 native speakers in and around the capital of Cameroon, Yaunde (Yaoundé), and a further 470,000 or so second language speakers in southern Cameroon, where it serves as a lingua franca.
Ewondo is a tonal language with five tones, though they are often omitted from writing. The high tone is marked with an acute accent (á), while the low tone is only marked in nasal syllables with a grave accent (à). The tones can be combined: high-low, marked by a circumflex (â), and low-high, marked by a caron (ǎ). There is also a middle tone.
