Attribute Value
  • An audio recording
  • 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:

  • This is backed up at Deep Blue documents. 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: Published volume: text 1, Recording: DS 02, title: hare and other animals (tale); text 2, DS 09, report on trip to Burkina; text 3, DS 10, blacksmith; text 4, DS 03, squirrel and hare (tale); text 5, DS 11, Fulbe herders. Recordings DS 01(tale of stepmother), 04 (farming), 05 (construction),06 (animals), 07 (hunting), 08 (herding), 12 (marriage), and 13 (korobasinging) are not transcribed as of May 2018. I grant permission to other linguists to transcribe, translate, and/or analyse them.
