Abstract:

This monolingual dictionary of Bamanankan, the first of its kind, is not a final project but rather the beginning of an ongoing process to revalidate Bamanankan and African languages. Though more modest than its counterparts from other continents, the concepts and the expressions of the Bamanan language, including also borrowed words, are all expressed uniquely in Bamanankan. This dictionary includes as well terminology relating to the Bamanan environment: art, occupations, society, flora and fauna, etc. The objective of this dictionary is to open the way for the eventual realization of an encyclopedic Bamanankan dictionary, and similarly, to produce such works in other African languages.
