Freelang Wolof-English dictionary

Wolof belongs to the West-Atlantic group of the Niger-Congo family (like Fulfulde). It is spoken by about 3.5 million people, mostly in Senegal, where it is the main African language. Wolof dialects may vary between countries (Senegal and Gambia) and the rural and urban areas. "Dakar-Wolof", for instance, is an urban mixture of Wolof, French, Arabic, and even a little English.
