Quotes/Proverbs Written in N'Ko


I’m making some art and hoping to incorporate N’ko script .

Are their any popular short proverbs/quotes in N’ko related to family, heritage, or anything else?

Hi Yeli! Thanks for joining the Forum and posting.

N’ko, as you know, is just a writing system. It’s primarily used for Manding. There are many proverbs and sayings in Manding language varieties like Bambara, Jula, Maninka and Mandinka, etc. Like with any other language, there are sayings related to pretty much every subject under the sun :slight_smile:

If you are doing general exploration at this point, I’d recommend that you check out the “Proverbs” section on the Literature write-up page.

Hope that helps!
