About the Proverbs category

Submit Bambara/Jula proverbs that you wish were included as a complement to the dictionary.

  • DO this category if you are adding a proverb which you understand
  • DO NOT use this category if you would like to ask a question about a proverb’s meaning or usage.
  • The topic’s title should be the proverb itself.
  • The Manding should be written in standard orthography (that is, using the Latin extended letters [e.g., ɛ , ɔ , ɲ , and ŋ ]). (Here’s a link if you need help typing these characters on your keyboard.)
  • The title may but does not necessarily need to include tone markings, but can.
