Lexical similarity percentages between the two varieties are between sixty-six and seventy-six percent, depending on the dialect of Yaleba, of which there are three. Between the Soma'a dialect and Wagawaga, lexical similarity is 66%; between the Sileba dialect and Wagawaga it is 72%; between the Gamadoudou dialect and Wagawaga it is 76%. Furthermore, intelligibility testing between Yaleba and Wagawaga revealed that intelligibility between the two varieties is only marginal and they do not share a common ethnolinguistic identity.”
