Datapoint Diu Indo-Portuguese/Proportion of native speakers

Most of those who use Diu Indo-Portuguese in their daily lives acquired the language as small children. Additional regular speakers include the spouses of native speakers and very few others.

Apart from the community of native speakers and those who, though non-native, make regular use of the language, there are many Diuese who have some knowledge of the language, for various reasons. These, however, tend not to use the language regularly, and some are only partially fluent.
