Project Lexicon
The Ngambay Lexicon, Petit Dictionnaire de la Langue Ngambay, contains over 3000 words, the majority with sample sentences, and over 900 idioms. The work is based on lexicons and conversation books produced by CCL in Sarh during the 1970's. Their work has been reviewed in N'Djamena during the summers of 2010, 2011, 2012, and the words and sentences from our project control list have been added. A spell check has been run on the sample sentences to ensure that all the words they contain are also contained in the lexicon. The words and sentences have been translated into French in order to make the work more useful to readers in Chad.

The Ngambay Sound Dictionary allows you to page through the Ngambay dictionary entries and listen to the words and sentences.
