Grammaire du mano

Mano Grammar
Грамматика языка мано

This work aims to present a grammatical description – as complete as possible – of a South Mande language, Mano (400,000 speakers in Guinea and Liberia). The research is based on elicitation data, as well as on a corpus of spontaneous texts (tales, legends, life stories, dialogues) collected during the fieldwork between 2009 and 2014. The total volume of the corpus is more than 3,5 hours. A part of the translation of the New Testament published in Liberia in 1978, verified with an informant, was another important source of language data.
