The Western Sara Languages

Authored by John M. Keegan

This is the third of a series of volumes dedicated to the study of the Sara Languages, a group of languages and dialects spoken in Southern Chad. It includes lexicons for three Western Sara languages: Kaba, Laka and Ngambay. The Kaba lexicon contains over 900 words, the Laka lexicon over 1850, and the Ngambay lexicon more than 3000 words. Sample sentences illustrating the words' uses have been included for the majority of the words. The work contains a general introduction to the sound system of the Sara Languages, discussion of the unique aspects of Western Sara, and an introduction to the each of the three languages. The introductory portions are in English, the translations for the lexicons in French, in order to make the work usable to readers in Chad.
