New stubs[di nyabili mali niŋ]

Welcome to the Dagbani Wikipedia, officially launched on June 30, 2021!

Here are some of the new categories and their respective articles that I have started. I have tried my best to link them to the correct Wikidata items. They don't have any text yet, just infoboxes, pictures, and links via Wikidata (more at meta:Filling red links with Wikidata). We will need editors to add text and content to the articles, so that we can have a nice-looking encyclopedia instead of just a picture dictionary (which is a good start though).

You can expand the articles and add Dagbani content to them. I am more familiar with languages in Nigeria, and am not a fluent speaker or writer of Dagbani, so I would gladly appreciate Dagbani translation help from time to time.

Be sure to use dictionaries such as Tony Naden's Dagbani dictionary (2014) to check for spelling and usage. If the entries in Naden (2014) are incorrect, you can make a note of it and put the correct one on Wikipedia instead.

Naden, Tony. 2014. Dagbani dictionary. Webonary.

Knut Olawsky's Dagbani grammar book and Roger Blench's lists of Dagbani plant and animal names are also very useful.

If you want to start new articles, be sure to:

  1. Add {{Databox}} on top
  2. Link the Dagbani article to other Wikipedia language editions
  3. Add categories (pubu)
  4. Add references (kundivihira)

Currently, a few of the Dagbani Wikipedia's most active editors are:
