Daman and Diu Language

Gujarati is the main language; use of Portuguese is declining because it is not official or taught at school (but still spoken by 10% in Daman). There are Portuguese-based creole languages in Daman (known as Língua da Casa, "Home Language") and Diu (Língua dos Velhos, "Elder's Language"). The Creole of Diu is rapidly becoming extinct by the pressure of Gujarati.
