Dictionary entries explained

Entries are displayed in their phonetic form rather than their orthographic form.

Each entry will have a headword. This will be followed by the plural, if it exists. The symbol « ≠ » means left micro stem boundary, while the symbol « ≠ » indicates morpheme boundary.

The figure of speech is given as an abbreviation, such as "n", meaning noun, in the example entry below. This is followed by the translation in English (Eng), then in French (Frn). See the example below:

à≠kɔ̀mán (pl. pà≠kɔ̀mán) n Eng adult Frn adulte
