Kpelle-English Dictionary with English-Kpelle Glossary
Elizabeth Grace Winkler (Indiana University - Bloomington)

This dictionary of Kpelle as spoken in Bong County, Liberia was prepared
with the assistance of Clara Jimmy-Samba, a native speaker of the
language. Kpelle is part of the Mande branch of the Western Sudanic
subgroup of the Niger Congo family and is representative of Mande
languages in many ways, including the absence of noun class markers and
the presence of five tonal melodies. As Kplelle is not a written
language, dictionary entries (over 1,100) are given in phonetic
transcription. Also included are comments on the sound system and grammar
of Kpelle.
