Interesting Fact

In the Dinka language of South Sudan, the word Dinka means "people".


Dinka is a language belonging to the Nilo-Saharan group of languages. It’s spoken by the Dinka people in South Sudan, predominantly in the west bank of the White Nile, and is closely related to Luo.

 Dinka is written using the Latin script, and the language has several different dialects.  According to Roger Blench’s Dinka Glossary “tɔrajak” is the Dinka word for “haggis” – a Dinka equivalent of the Scottish delicacy, which is a goat’s stomach filled with cooked, salted fat. There is also “lieŋ” – a big harpoon for hunting hippos.
