Language Mombo

edited by Heath, Jeffrey and Moran, Steven

Mombo (exonym Kolu So) is a Western Dogon language, belonging to the Mombo-Ampari group and is spoken in several villages including Songho that are on or near the highway from Mopti-Sevare to Bandiagara. The Nyambeenge and Ambaleenge varieties reported on Blench's website as potentially distinct languages may turn out to be dialects of Mombo from a linguist's perspective, though not necessarily from that of the local people. Most of our data are from Songho village; other dialects like that of Ficko are said to be quite different.
