Sogolon

Abstract : Sogolon is the name of the mother of Sundiata Keita, the hero of the well-known Mandinka Epic. It is also a surname given by Valentin Vydrin to his daughter Alexandra, co-author of this paper. Finally, it is a word that can be found in a couple of dictionaries of West African languages. Our purpose is to follow some of the tracks that this word opens, which will lead us to unexpected assumptions.
