This lexicon contains approximately 2,200 words. This is a preliminary edition and we invite all readers who will use it to send us their suggestions for correcting and improving it.


This lexicon would never have seen the light of day without the help of our sanphone friends and collaborators. Besides the two people mentioned above, we want to thank all the sanphones who have helped from near or far, in particular our language assistant, Ms. Christiane Zerbo, the coordinator and supervisors of the literacy program, Ms. Suzanne Ki-Zerbo , Mr. Lassina Idiané, Mr. Michel Tony, Mr. Jean Ki, Mr. Roger Paré. We also thank the head of the DPEBA, Mr. Dieudonné as well as Mr. SO Elie and Mr. Michel KI.
