Mancanha: a Contribution of a Culture and Language Study

There are many works on some languages of Senegal. However, the state of the documentation remains insufficient for the Mancanha. Today, Mancanha is a black hole in the knowledge that linguists have been able to accumulate from both a cultural and a descriptive point of view. In this work, we intend to explore on the one hand, various manifestations in culture and sociolinguistic forms in Mancanha. Particular emphasis will be put on historicals aspects, practices and linguistic attitudes of mancanha. On the other hand, we intend to show part of the research results recently done on morphosyntax. An important language specific property of Mancanha concerns the relation between nominal prefixes and the agreement properties of nouns. A particular care is given on the phenomenon of personal pronouns hierarchy.
