Work Description

Title: Lexical documents Tiefo-N language of Burkina Faso Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • Regular lexical elicitation of the Tiefo-N language generated during a larger linguistic fieldwork project. The presentation separates nouns, adjectives, numerals, “other,” verbs and places (toponyms) to permit customized formats for each category.
  • Our project, mainly on Dogon languages of Mali, has branched out to Burkina Faso with emphasis on documentation of the most endangered languages. Tiefo-N was studied on an emergency basis since it was down to two aging competent speakers. For additional comments and links to a reference grammar, see the readme file.
