      Wolof language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

      Origin and History

      Wolof is the official language of Senegal, Mauritania and Gambia, and the local language of the people of Wolof. Like the neighbouring Serer and Fula languages, it belongs to the Niger-Congo language family's Senegambian branch.

      Wolof's origin has not been clearly identified. Some linguists suggest that the name Wolof may have originated from the 14th century region in which the empire of Jolof was founded. The spread of deserts and political conflicts gradually pushed Wolof-speaking people southward from the Jolof region to other parts of Senegal.

      In the 20th century, socioeconomic integration, urbanisation, and inter-ethnic marriages helped spread the language. As the Lebu people are Wolof and speak a regional Wolof dialect, Wolof did not emerge as the language of the Lebu people.


      Wolof has two main geographical varieties: one spoken in Senegal and the other spoken in the Gambia (Ethnologue). The two forms are mutually intelligible, but there are essential distinctions between the two. Within Senegal, five dialects are characterised by ethnology: Baol, Cayor, Dylof, Lebou, and Jander.

      In addition, there are variations between those spoken in urban areas and those spoken in rural areas. Wolof, for example, spoken in Senegal's capital, Dakar, has a greater number of French loanwords than other dialects.

      Countries spoken

      It is the most commonly spoken language in Senegal, spoken natively as a second language by the Wolof people (40% of the population) but also by most other Senegalese. Wolof is not a tonal language, unlike most other languages in the Niger-Congo family.

      Since no single variety was ever recognised as the default, Wolof is not a standardised language. The variety is, however, spoken in Dakar, the capital of Senegal.
