The Mbelime Alphabet


Mbelime uses an extended Latin alphabet, as is common in many African languages. It has a phonemic orthography, which means that in principle each character corresponds with one sound.

This is the alphabetical order used to arrange the Mbelime words in this dictionary:

a b c d e ɛ f h i k kp l m n o ɔ p r s t u w y
