Written By: Moussa D. Ndiaye
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 62

Ce livre est un ouvrage scientifique sur le wolof, une langue parlée principalement au Sénégal et en Gambie, mais aussi en Mauritanie. Spécialement conçu dans un but pédagogique, il s'adresse aussi bien aux enseignants et aux étudiants en linguistique qui y trouveront de nombreux exercices et leur corrigé qu'à toute personne désireuse de connaître la structure morphologique du wolof.

Il fait ensuite le point sur la composition, les types de mots composés et leur classification. Le livre s'achève sur l'étude de l'emprunt, un phénomène que l'auteur a traité dans ses aspects phonologique, morphologique, sémantique et sociolinguistique.
