(i)

The CANGIN LANGUAGES are spoken by 200,000 people (as of 2007) in a small area east of Dakar
Dakar
, Senegal
Senegal
. They are the languages spoken by the Serer people who do not speak the Serer language (Serer-Sine). Because the people are ethnically Serer, the Cangin languages
Cangin languages
are commonly thought to be dialects of the Serer language. However, they are not closely related; Serer is closer to Fulani than it is to Cangin.

The languages are:

Safen , or Saafi-Saafi, the language of the Saafi people . Spoken inland from the Petite Côte, an area southeast of Dakar. The largest Cangin language, with over 100,000 speakers and growing (2007).

Lehar (Laalaa), the language of the Serer-Laalaa (or Serer-Lehar), spoken in a small area north of Thiès
Thiès
.

Noon , the language of the Serer-Noon , spoken around Thiès
Thiès
.

Palor , the language of the Palor people , spoken in a small area between Rufisque and Thies
Thies
.

Ndut , the language of the Serer-Ndut people , spoken in the Mont-Roland, an area northwest of Thies
Thies
and in the Kingdom of Biffeche on the Senegal
Senegal
River .

Lehar and Noon are particularly close, as are Ndut and Palor, though not quite to the point of easy intelligibility. Safen is transparently closer to Lehar–Noon than to Palor–Ndut.
