It is spoken by other Bari Speakers like Pojulu, Kakaw, Nyangwara, Mundari and Kuku people. It is an Eastern Nilotic language, and has several dialects. According to the SIL and The Ethnologue, there were 420,000 speakers of Bari in Sudan 2000. Bari is a tone language. It has vowel harmony, subject-verb-object word order, and agglutinative verbal morphology with some suppletion. A very competent dictionary and grammar were published in the 1930s, but are very difficult to find today.
