Tyap Wikimedians User Group is a user group dedicated to promoting Wikimedia projects in Nenzit (Central Plateau) languages, with Tyap language as a role model. Tyap is a Nigerian language spoken in the central part of the country, with over 250,000 native speakers and unaccounted number of L2 and L3 speakers and when considered one and same with Jju (a close mutually intelligible language with a separate ISO Code), would have close to a million L1 speakers.
The Tyapic lects with two ISO codes kcg and kaj are a group of mutually intelligible dialects spoken in Central Nigeria. The largest of these lects is Jju (ISO: kaj), spoken by more than 300,000 people (as of 1988); and Tyap (ISO: kcg), spoken by more than 130,000 (as of 1993) indigenous speakers. The core Tyap dialects include: Fantswam, Gworok, Sholyio, Takad, Tyap (proper; Mabatado or Mabarado), Tyecharak, and Tyuku. Jju's intelligibility with each Tyap dialect vary. The average being above 80% (see Comparison between Tyap dialects). With fellow Nenzit languages, Tyap is 72% intelligible with Izere and 66% with Rigwe.
The group's membership is open to all interested individuals.
