Na - French Dictionary

With Introduction in English

Authored by John M. Keegan, Kodé Koutou

Na, also known as Sara Kaba Na, is a Sara Kaba language used by some 35,000 speakers in the area around Kyabé in southern Chad. There are also a large number of speakers in the Chadian capital N'djamena. The Sara Kaba languages are one of three subgroups of Sara-Bagirmi, a grouping of some 29 Central Sudanic languages of the Nilo-Saharan family.

This brief dictionary contains more than 3050 words, 3150 sample sentences, and 700 idiomatic expressions. It also contains a 60 page introduction explaining the transcription used, pronunciation, and basic elements of the grammar.

The Na data was gathered in N'djamena during the summers of 2012, 2013 and 2014, working principally with Kodé Koutou. The work is based on the "Dictionnaire Sara-Kaba-Na - Français" published at the Collège Charles Lwanga in Sarh.
