Gulmancema is the mother tongue of 100,000 to 500,000 people in Western Africa (Burkina-Faso, Benin, and Togo). It belongs to the family of Gur languages, a branch of the Niger-Congo languages. This classical structuralist grammar starts with an introduction to the language policy of Burkina Faso and the alphabetization projects for Gulmancema. It is followed by an extensive description of Gulmancema’s basic phonological and morphological elements and its nominal and verbal system and also contains numerous language examples and tonal patterns.
