Rapport d'enquête sociolinguistique des dialectes du Djenaama (aussi appelé Sorogaama)

Language: Bozo, Jenaama

Jenaama (in French Djenaama) or Sorogaama is one of the Bozo languages spoken in the interior delta of the Niger River in Mali between San and Nyafounké. The goal of this survey (done in 2003) was to gain a better understanding of Jenaama's dialects by looking at the intercomprehension and the sociolinguistic attitude between the different dialects, with regard to establishing which dialect might serve as a reference for the eventual standardization of written material in Jenaama. Besides this main goal, we also tried to clarify demographic details about the Jenaama speaking population.
