Mampruli (Ŋmampulli)

Mampruli is member of the Gur branch of Niger-Congo languages. It is spoken by about 316,000 people mainly in the Northern Region of Ghana, particularly in northeastern parts of that region between Yizeesi and Nakpanduri, and in the towns of Gambaga and Walewale. It is taught in schools and is used to a limited extent in literature.

There are also about 10,000 speakers of Mampruli in Tône Prefecture in the Savanes region in northern Togo.

Mampruli is also known as Mampelle, Mamprule, Mamprusi, Mamprussi, Manpelle, Ngmamperli or Nmampurli. Native speakers call it Ŋmampurili or Ŋmampulli, and themselves Ŋmampurisi , and their land Ŋmampurigu.

Mampruli is closely related to Dagbani and is partially intelligible with it. It is written with the Latin alphabet, although Mampruli speakers are literate in their language.
