Fulfulde language family report

Author  Harrison, Annette
Abstract 

This report maps the location of Fulfulde speakers in Africa. Seventeen African countries from Senegal to Sudan are home to Fulfulde speakers. This latest effort at mapping the Fulfulde dialect continuum draws on earlier maps, library research, database information from the Ethnologue, and data from field linguists working in most countries where Fulfulde is spoken. Included is an introduction to the Fulfulde and a large bibliography.
