Godié (Betɩgwʋʋ)

Godié is a member of the Eastern Kru branch of the Niger-Congo language family. It is spoken in southern Ivory Coast, mainly in the Gbôklé Region in the southeast of the Bas-Sassandra District, and also in the neighbouring Gôh-Djiboua district. It is classified in some sources as a dialect of the Bété language.

Godié is also known as Dadjriwalé or Godye. Dialects include Tiglu, Glibe, Kagbo, Dagli, Nugbo, Dlogo, Jluko, Nyago and Koyo. The Kagbo dialect is the most widely understood.

Godié is written with a version of Latin alphabet using an orthography based on The Orthographic Conventions for Ivorian Languages created by the Institut de linguistique appliquée (ILA) of the Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny. It is used in the media and literature.
