The Fur (For, Fūranq bilī, Poor'íŋ belé) variety of Ajami: an invisible tradition

Dobronravin, Nikolay

The Fur language of Darfur is one of the major Nilo-Saharan languages of today’s Sudan. The only official language of Sudan is Arabic, dominating all written communication except few cases where English may be used. In a sharp contrast to Arabic in whatever form, other languages of Sudan remain non-official. This note discusses earlier accounts of Ajami writing in the Fur language.
