Xhosa People and Language
The Xhosa people live in south-eastern South Africa and, in the last two centuries, throughout the southern and central-southern parts of the country. Xhosa people currently make up approximately 18% of the South African population. By number (2008): in South Africa — 8,941,000; in Lesotho — 23,000; in Zimbabwe — 29,800; in Botswana — 11,000.
Xhosa is the most widely distributed African language in South Africa. It is a Bantu language closely related to Zulu, Swazi, and Ndebele. As with other South African languages, Xhosa is characterized by respectful forms of address for elders and in-laws, and it is rich in idioms.
Xhosa language is written using a Latin alphabet. It contains many words with click consonants that have been borrowed from Khoi or San words. Three letters are used to indicate the basic clicks: c for dental clicks, x for lateral clicks, and q for post-alveolar clicks.
