About the Sayings category

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

“Saying” is a broad category that can include proverbial phrases, idioms and other expressions that are conventional and transmitted primarily by oral tradition.

  • DO this category if you are adding a saying which you understand and want to document
  • DO NOT use this category if you would like to ask a question about a saying’s meaning or usage.
  • The topic’s title should be the saying 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.
