This is devastating news - very sudden and saddening indeed. Sonja has played such an important role not only for Pulaar in Senegal and more broadly for all varieties of the Fula (Fulfulde) language - her linguistic specialization - but also for literacy and literature in all African languages of Senegal and the region. One is heartened, though, to remember that her efforts as a scholar and practitioner, personally and via ARED have touched and benefitted so many people. Condolences to her family! Yo Alla hinnoo mo, yaafoo mo! [To the list of language learning materials please add: Pular: A Guide for the Dialect of Fuuta Jalon (Guinea)]
