- I was surprised to find "Eropa" (Europe) as a word. I always thought it was "Poto" and searched for it - elókó tê.

If you could help me learn how to add redirects, nakosala yango. Melesi! DBlomgren 05:38, 8 novembere 2006 (UTC)
About Wikionary and Pɔtɔ, please wait for an answer from Moyogo. I am sorry about this, but I am very busy at University until end of this month, so I cannot check at my sources at the ZBZ library.
How to type african letters? There are different ways: (1) using the unicode codes (2) using the keybord you can download at Moyogo's user page ("Clavier Lingala / Lingala Keyboard Layout" for Linux, Mac and Windows) or (3) the easy way: click on the underlined letter just at the bottom of the editing field of Wikipedia ("Caractères spécieaux"): the letter will apear at the cursor's place. --Bombo 14:33, 9 novembere 2006 (UTC)
