Linguistic delights of Bambara:
Apropos ornitologists (see entry a couple of days ago) a migratory bird in Bambara is a 'dugu dugu'. If someone is interferring with one's mobile phone, that person is exercising the verb 'digi digi'. And 'dege dege' I believe to be a ground nut sauce. But I may have got it all wrong...I normally do. Posted by Picasa
