By Ambouroue Odette

Les parlers du groupe myènè ont bénéficié d’un definite intérêt dans les études linguistiques bantu. Toutefois, les acquis sont fragmentaires et portent sur des issues précis de los angeles langue. Aussi avons-nous choisi de réaliser une étude globale de l. a. langue, du moins de sa variante orungu qui, jusqu’ici, n’a quasiment pas été décrite. L’orungu, classificationé en B11b par Guthrie, est l’un des parlers utilisés par un groupe socio-culturel qui se désigne sous le nom de Ngwè-myènè1 ou sous celui de Myènè, dénomination administrative qui est de plus en plus employé. Cet ensemble regroupe les
Mpongwè de l’estuaire du Gabon, les Nkomi, les Galwa, les Adyumba et les Enénga du Bas-Ogooué. On a souvent, à tort, intégré le benga dans ce groupe, alors qu’il n’y a pas d’intercompréhension entre cette langue et les parlers omyènè. Les membres de cette
communauté essentiellement linguistique parlent l’o my3 n (le myènè) dont les variantes dialectales sont dans l’ordre : /e o wan /, /e u wan / , /e al wan / ,/e om ya n / , /ed yum byan / et /en e yan /. "Ce groupe couvre une uniqueness unité sociologique, tant et si bien qu’on a confondu le nom de los angeles langue (mye ne : je dis) avec le nom de l’ancêtre, assimilant a priori langue et race ou langue et ethnie".
