Lambya Bible - New Testament

Lambya (Rambia) is a Bantu language of Tanzania and Malawi. In Northern Malawi it is spoken particularly in the Chitipa District.Sukwa, once thought to be a dialect of Nyakyusa, is now considered to be a dialect of Lambya. The University of Malawi Language Mapping Survey for Northern Malawi (2006), agreeing with this, found that the three languages Cilambya, Cindali, and Cisukwa form a single dialect group, although there are differences between them, especially between Cilambya and the other two. The examples below come in the order Lambya, Ndali, Sukwa: Person = umunthu, umundu, umundu Grasshopper = imphanzi, imbashi, imbasi Scorpion = kalizga, kalisha, kalisya Maize = ivilombe, ifilombe, ifilombe Dog = imbwa, ukabwa, ukabwa Bird = chiyuni, kayuni, kayuni Snail = inkhozo, ingofu, ingofo
