Lexique supyiré-français, français-supyiré
Editeur : SIL Mali, 2003
Langues : Senoufo, Supyire

Ce lexique a pour but de se servir comme un standard pour ceux qui veulent écrire le supyiré.

Le dialecte de la région de Kampolondougou a été fixé par le Ministre d'Education (Direction Nationale d'Alphabétisation Fonctionnelle et de Linguistique Appliquée) comme dialecte standard. Dr. Robert Carlson de la SIL a élaboré un dictionnaire expérimental de ce dialecte, qui comprend plus de 4.000 mots.

Ce lexique, élaboré par Lamine Sanogo et Michael Jemphrey est basé sur le susdit dictionnaire, mais est plus restreint et se limite aux mots de base pour aider surtout celui qui commence à écrire la langue.

Supyire Funerals – Then and Now

Auteur : Carlson, Joyce

This paper begins with a description of the rites that make up traditional Supyire funerals in order to gain an understanding of what these rites convey to the people who practice them, and the functions of these rites within their traditional setting. A look will then be taken at a Supyire Christian funeral, and at more recent developments away from traditional practices, as members of the Supyire community turn towards Christian or Muslim beliefs.

Marriage Customs among the Supyire

Auteur : Carlson, Joyce
Editeur : SIL Mali, 1982

The wedding and post-wedding events attending and following the marriage of a Supyire couple witnessed by the author on April 23, 1982 are described. Patrilocal marriages are arranged between two patrilineal descent groups by means of the intervention of an intermediary and the giving of gifts and labor to the bride's family. Consanguineal relations are seen to supersede affinal ones. The social status of each person relative to others is clearly defined.

The Supyire dry season from November till March is dominated by the warm Harmattan wind blowing off the Sahara. Then the humidity builds from the south before the rain is released in tropical downpours. A good rainy season lasts until October.

Translating the Levitical sacrifices

Abstract: In this article, I begin with section 1 by presenting the five main sacrifices found in the first seven chapters of Leviticus, including their relations to the requirement for Israel to be holy. In section 2, I describe the functions of the levitical sacrifices, and in section 3, I compare these with the functions of the multifarious sacrifices carried out by the Supyire people in southern Mali.
