Agglutination and the Bemba Language:
The Bemba language is spoken by about 5 million people in my native Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Fun fact: The Bemba language is agglutinative meaning that complex words are formed by stringing together small grammatical units, without changing them in spelling or phonetics.
In each of these examples, the prefix tells you about the type of entity and the quantity (singlular or plural):
person = umuntu = umu +ntu
people = abantu = aba + ntu
thing = ichintu = ichi + ntu
things = ifi = ifi + ntu
Being = Ubuntu = Ubu + ntu.
Other agglutinative languages include Japanese, Finnish, Filipino, Turkish, and the Inuit (Native American) languages.
