Northern Sotho, or "Sesotho sa Leboa", is one of the official languages of South Africa, and is spoken by 4,208,980 people (2001 Census Data), mostly in the provinces of Gauteng, Limpopo Province and Mpumalanga.
The Northern Sotho language has historically been largely based on the dialect Sepedi. For this reason, it is often incorrectly called Sepedi.
