Dogon is reputed for its extremely high dialectal diversity: there are more
than 15 dialects attested, most of them being mutually unintelligible. The
sketch is based on one of the central dialects, Tommo­so, very important
sociolinguistically but not well described yet (more or less like all the
other Dogon dialects).

Typologically, Dogon is characterized by a quite unusual combination of
"agglutinating" verb (with a variety of aspectual and temporal markers
within the word ­form) and "isolating" noun (without any affixal markers at
all, even number and case markers being clitical). The sketch provides a
short phonological and morphological description, a concise account of
grammatical categories and derivational system and an overview of main
syntactic properties of Dogon (special emphasis is laid on
converbs/participles and "serialization" in clause combining).
