) General Remarks

This Futankoore Pulaar lexicon is composed of words that I have collected mainly from two Futankoore speaker informants, Mr. Aali Saydu Saaw and Mr. Aamadu Bah, in Montreal in 1984 and 1985 (cf. Introduction).1 As mentioned in the introduction, both informants are from Kaedi in Mauritania, which is located in the Futa Toro area. The entire corpus, which contains more than 1,500 entries, was corrected in 1986 by Mr. Aamadu Bah.2
