Waalii  is the language spoken in the  northwestern corner of Ghana, in the middle of the area considered the homeland of Dagaare.  Waali is used as a lingua franca throughout the nothwestern corner of Ghana.


My version of Mr. Dansieh's Waalii Dictionary, revised to match the other dictionaries on this site is available here:

The main work on the Waalii Dictionary has been conducted by S.A. Dansieh and collaborators based at Wa itself.

Mr. Dansieh has published an English dictionary for Waalii speakers, but no Waalii-English version is available.

The English-Waalii dictionary is on Webonary and can be found at:
