Free Papers in Fulfulde and Pulaar

Haa njii-ɗaa kaydi ɗoon, laar to les

Ɓadake and Ɓooyataa are papers in Adamawa Fulfulde and Pulaar for Fulani and Fulas/Pulaar speakers, containing writings of the prophets and stories of Fulas’ experiences with God. They are printed every six months. You can read the papers online – scroll down this page to see the links.

Ɓooyataa (numbers 1-12) are in Pulaar-Fulakunda and Pulaar of Fouta Toro (Toucouleur). Numbers 13 - 16 are in Pulaar of Fouta Jalon (Pulaar of Guinea) and Pulaar of Fouta Toro (Toucouleur). From numbers 17 it is in all three dialects. These dialects of Pulaar are spoken by Fulas in Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Gambia, Mauritania, west of Mali, Republic of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Ɓadake is produced in Adamawa Fulfulde and the dialect spoken in the east of Niger. These dialects are spoken in Cameroon, N Nigeria, and Niger. They may well be understood by Fulas in Benin and Togo, and it would be interesting to test readability among Fulas in eastern Mali and Burkina Faso.

Language helpers needed

We urgently need more volunteer mother-tongue language helpers for checking in any of these Fula dialects. Because speakers may not always be able to write the language accurately, and because two-way discussion is essential, we need their help and advice by phone – only really practical when they are living in the West, or else have access to Skype, and cheap Internet access. There are many Fula people in UK, France and USA, sometimes as asylum seekers. If you know of Fula people in your area who might help us, please tell us.


These papers are offered free in any reasonable quantity to anyone who can use them among this language group. Individuals can also ask to be placed on the mailing list for a single copy of each issue. Email your requests to us.
