More than 5 million people speak Wolof in the Gambia, Senegal and Mauritania. It is the language spoken by businesspeople in these countries and has become increasingly prevalent in the area's radio and TV programming. Knowledge of Wolof is essential for anyone looking to travel or do business in the region. This unique dictionary and phrasebook is the only current reference for Wolof in English. As there is no written form of the language, words and phrases are presented in a special anglicised form that allows the user to easily speak and understand the language. A concise guide to grammar and pronunciation is also included. Primarily based on the Gambian dialect of the language, the book is an invaluable tool wherever Wolof is spoken.
