The Mbum–Day languages are a subgroup of the old Adamawa languages family (G6, G13, G14, & Day), provisionally now a branch of the Savanna languages. These languages are spoken in southern Chad, northwestern Central African Republic, northern Cameroon, and eastern Nigeria.

Languages

Blench (2006) groups the Mbum (G6), Bua (G13), Kim (G14), and Day languages together within part of a larger GurAdamawa language continuum.[2]
