Elementary Maninka-Kan. Final Report.
Spears, Richard A.
This course is an introduction to Maninka-kan, a language spoken by six large populations in West Africa. It makes no claim to being the definitive work in the language, but it provides a basis for continued study. The two major sections of the course are: (1) technical information about the language, plus a number of tonal and grammatical drills; and (2) material for memorization programmed to be used simultaneously with the grammatical explanations, consisting of common phrases, questions, and fifteen narratives accompanied by color transparencies. Tone and tonal changes in Maninka-kan are considered to be of such major importance that the entire course is built around these two areas, and every effort has been made to maximize the understanding of tone in all of the drills and narratives.
