dc.description.abstractThe manuscript is an address book. It contains people’s names and their phone numbers. Some of the people mentioned are from Guinea-Bissau. The phone numbers are generally spelled out in Mandinka Ajami. However, in some cases it is the French reading of the numbers that is written in Mandinka Ajami. For example, 25-24-43 are spelled out in Mandinka Ajami as they would normally be read in French. Other phone numbers are directly translated in Mandinka using the Mandinka numbering system. Occasionally, some phone numbers are written with Western numerals. The manuscript was digitized in the home of the owner (Abdou Karim Thiam) in the neighborhood of Kandialang in Ziguinchor, Senegal.en_US
