|Abstract:||This article examines the lexical metamorphosis of the Kalanga language caused by the dominance of the language by Ndebele. It is based on research conducted among the Kalanga-speaking people of Bulilima-mangwe in Matebeleland and argues that because of the domination of Kalanga by Ndebele, the Kalanga language is undergoing a lexical metamorphosis which poses a threat to its survival unless measures are taken to promote and preserve it. Preservation of Kalanga is important, given the fact that language is a vehicle of culture and the death of Kalanga would, thus, spell the demise of Kalanga culture.|
