Show timeline of Senegal
Senegal is located on the West coast of Africa, south of Mauritania.
(WSJ, 1/2/98, p.8)
Wolof is spoken by around 40% of Senegal's 11 million people as their mother tongue, and by around the same number as a second language. Its success threatens the roughly 30 indigenous languages spoken in the country.
