African country located at the most North-Western point of the African continent. Senegal is one of Africa's most established democracies, with a multi-party system and a tradition of civilian rule. Though very poor, its economy is stable. The main language spoken is French from the former colonialists, but just over 40% of its population is Wolof and speaks the Wolof language. Additional ethnic groups are the Fula, the Serer, the Jola, the Mandinka and the Soninke, though latter only represents about 1% of the population.
Beside Senegal, Wolof people can be found in The Gambia and in Mauritania. Also spelled Ouolof in older French publications.
Wolof, like the neighboring languages Serer and Fula, belongs to the Senegambian branch of the Niger-Congo language family. Unlike most other languages of Sub-Saharan Africa, Wolof is not a tonal language.
Wolof is the most widely spoken language in Senegal and is also by spoken by most other Senegalese as a second language. Wolof dialects vary geographically and between rural and urban areas. "Dakar-Wolof", for instance, is an urban mixture of Wolof, French, and Arabic.
The Latin orthography of Wolof in Senegal was set by government decrees between 1971 and 1985. The language institute "Centre de linguistique appliquée de Dakar" (CLAD) is widely acknowledged as an authority when it comes to spelling rules for Wolof. The first syllable of words is stressed; long vowels are pronounced with more time, but are not automatically stressed, as they are in English.
