The government of Zimbabwe has promoted a language policy that has promoted English as the official language of the state. Shona and Ndebele, the two dominant endoglossic languages have been accorded the status of national languages. Several other endoglossic languages have been designated minority languages without any role or status in the official domains. This paper discusses the initiatives undertaken by the Zimbabwean minority language groups in order to develop and promote their languages for use in the secondary domains such as Education and the media.
