This is a collection of photos of villages located primarily in Central Mali. These photos are primarily of Dogon villages, but there are village photos of other nearby ethnicities, including Bangande, Fulbe, Tuareg, Songay, and Bozo.These photos were taken to document the villages Professor Jeffrey Heath worked in and people he worked with while documenting languages throughout the region. For interactive geographical maps involving these villages see: http://dogonlanguages.org/geography.cfm.
Donno So is a Dogon language spoken over a wide area on the Dogon (Bandiagara) plateau, mainly between Bandiagara and the eastern edge of the plateau. It is also called Kamma So. A grammar was published electronically at Language Description Heritage Library in 2016: and http://ldh.clld.org/2016/07/01/escidoc2491630-3 This is backed up at Deep Blue documents. http://hdl.handle.net/2027.42/123062Thirteen texts were recorded digitally in Wendekele village south of Bandiagara in approximately 2015. Because of equipment problems the texts are rather faint and difficult to transcribe. Five texts were transcribed and translated, and presented at the end of the grammar volume. The correspondences are these:
