Ḥassānīya-Texte des mauretanischen Dichters Ahmedou Ould Abdel Kader

The four dialect texts were recorded with the Mauritanian poet Ahmedou Ould Abdel Kader. The first two texts are fables, the other ones ethnographic texts. The dialect is very elaborated since our narrator had prepared himself one day before the recordings by thinking about the subject and making a choice of typical
and sometimes rare dialect words, for instance aḏ̣ru ‘ elephant,’ glossed by the more common vīl. In a short introduction we deal with the anaptyctic vowel and accentuation.
