Projet des corpus écrits des langues manding : le bambara, le maninka

Abstract : The project of electronic corpora for Manding languages was launched in St. Petersburg in 2009. By now, it is carried out by an international team with an assistance by specialists in Manding languages from different countries. Tools have been developed taking into account the specifics of Manding languages (and adaptable to other languages). The Bamana Reference Corpus was put on line in 2012, it was followed by a Maninka corpus (in both Roman and N’ko writing) in February 2014. An orthography corrector for Bamana and a software for the Bamana OCR has been developed on the basis of the Bamana Reference Corpus tools. An experimental use of the Bamana Corpus in the Bamana teaching in universities and in linguistic studies has proved its effectiveness. The experience accumulated in the framework of this project can be relatively easily extended to other Manding varieties (Jula of Côte d’Ivoire, Jula of Burkina Faso), and, if necessary, to other African languages.
