in the film 'amstad' as refered to in the head article the Mende language not having the auxillary verb 'should' is refered to. also as the difficulty in translating 'slave' comes up i believe the knowledgable person(s) should address these issues. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.82.7.239 (talk) 10:21, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Written forms[edit]

I've created a new section on written forms, including the existing paragraph and adding info on the alphabet. For the latter, there are two references I could only access via Googlebooks (without full text) for info on the vowels. If someone can access the latter, that should permit more complete info on the Latin-based Mende alphabet, and any changes that may have been made in it over the last 50-60 years.--A12n (talk) 15:41, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
