Continuing the discussion from Amen [alternative to "amiina"]:
Here’s the sentence I came across in the Peace Corps manual that set me out on this particular loanword journey:
Ala k’a kɛ jurumu kafari ye.
I looked in the dictionary to find replacements of those three loanwords with Bambara words… or at least words without a source listed and came up with this:
Ngala/Matigi k’a kɛ filimako nɔgɔsi ye.
And maybe it’s still wrong in this case too? But which sentence out of the two is more Bambara in your opinion?
