Medumba is a member of the Bamileke group of Southern Bantoid languages spoken by about 210,000 people in Cameroon. In particular, it is spoken in the settlements of Bangangté, Bakong, Bangoulap, Bahouoc, Bagnoun and Tonga in the Nde division of the West Region in the southwest of Cameroon
Medumba is also known as Bangangte, and native speakers call it Mə̀dʉ̂mbɑ̀ [mə̀ɟʝʉ̂ᵐbɑ̀]. There is some written material in Medumba, and there is a radio station that broadcasts in the language.
A way to write Medumba with the Latin alphabet was developed by Protestant missionaries in 1926. Since then, five other orthographies for Medumba have been devised. The current spelling system was adopted at the 4th CEPOM (Comité de Langue pour l'Etude et la Production des Œuvres Bamiléké-Medumba) Council in 1985.
