Country and Language Profile
Wolof is a member of Niger-Congo language family and represents one of 6 languages spoken in Senegal, along with Serer, Mandinka, Pulaar, Diola and Soninke. There are approximately 7 million Wolof speakers, not only inhabitants of Senegal, but also Guinea-Bisau, Gambia, Mauritania, Mali and France. An old version of the language, named Wolofo, included initially arab letters and nowadays it is still used by older people. Starting 1974, Latin was officially chosen as a standard norm for the written version of Wolof. Wolof encompassed a few dialects, two of them enjoying a wider use: Senegal Wolof and Gambian Wolof. The first one is mostly spoken in Senegal, and the second in Republic of Gambia, correspondingly. Besides, there are significant differences between the rural and urban version. For instance, in the urban regions have been noticed many words borrowed from French.


In Senegal, Wolof population constitutes the larger ethnic group, about 39%. Outside the confines of Senegal, Wolof is spoken by the minority. Currently, there are approximately 4 millions of native speakers of the language and other millions who enjoy the use of Wolof as a second language. Regarding the main features which distinguish Wolof from Lebu, the second one actually constitutes the source of existence for Wolof. Besides, people who can speak Lebu, possess the command of Wolof as well. More precisely, Lebu represents a population which belongs ethnically to Africa and which inhabits mainly the lands of Senegal, on the peninsula named Cape-Verde. Fishing and building constitutes the activities which have a greater prevalence in the region. Lebu also has a religious sect named Lavene. Since 1815, Lebu has been legally recognized as a theocratic republic.

Amongst the books which have been translated into Wolof can be mentioned The New Testament, published in 1987, and the novel “Doomi Golo”, written by Boubacar Boris Diop and published in 2002.  The popular song “7seconds”, by Youssou N’Dour and Neneh Cherry also contains several words in Wolof.  There has been noticed a strong influence on the vocabulary due to the period of slavery, when many refugees drom Southern were moving in the North. For example, the word “Ok” dates from those years. The word “banana” comes from Wolof as well.  The senegalese language is famous for its beautiful women who dress fashionably and wear sophisticated hairstyles. Their beauty has a great impact on the remote regions, setting fashion trends for other populations around.
