Summary of the deposit
Language documentation of Baga Mandori with focus on a dictionary.
Baga Mandori is native to most inhabitants of Dobali and Kalagba districts, Kanfarandé, a sub-prefecture of Boké, Guinea, West-Africa. During my research many speakers, when asked about the language(s) they spoke, referred to this language variety by the generic term “Baga”, without further specification.
The uploading process of contents is ongoing. I have not yet managed to upload all material. Once the uploading activity has reached completion I will include more comments on the contents.
The material collected for this deposit was recorded during a single field research trip that took place from January to May 2014. A second field research trip was planned for the spring of 2015. This could not be carried out due to the 2014 Ebola outbreak. Funding for this project was graciously granted by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
