Research Area:


The project is a description and a comparison of the three Northern Bia languages: Baoulé, Agni and Anufo. The situation of this group is unique, because of the historically documented conditions of the migration of the Anufom. In fact, the Anufom people moved from the Ano area (today Prikro in Côte d’Ivoire) to settle in Northern Togo which is a Gurma area. With the establishment of Anufom in the Gangam area, there is a situation of language contact. This project aims also to show in which level this contact has affected the language system of anufo.
