Title: The Mende Language
Written By: F.W.H. Migeod
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 133
Description:

The Mende Language

F.W.H. Migeod

The Mende nation is located in the eastern part of the Sierra Leone
Proctectorate. My study of the Mende language has been carried through my
last two tours of services on the Gold Coast. There are some varieties of
Mende spoken on the borders of the country where the people have mixed with
their neighbours. In this book I have endeavoured to employ the southern
form of the speech. The scheme I have adopted is one of short sentences of
practical use, classified under their proper heads. Whenever possible a
sentence is repeated if it can be made to illustrate more than one
grammatical rule, and I have endeavoured to avoid the coining of phrases
for the sake of furnishing examples of a rule (from the Introduction).

Contents:
Part I: Useful phrases.
Part II: Grammar (Pronunciation, substantives, adjectives, pronouns, verbs,
adverbs, prepositions). Part III: Vocabularies.
Part IV: Reading Materials. (re-edition, originally published 1908, London,
written in English).
