The speaker of the recordings is Micailou "Jacques" Konfé, who has been my main informant for the many years. I cannot thank him enough for his endurance, his linguistic insights, and his patience in teaching me what little Koromfe I can actually speak. I also thank my wife, Amsetou, who has given me further insights over the past years.

I would also like to thank the late a jɔ Sigri  and all my friends in Pobé-Mengao for their support, both linguistic and otherwise.

I am also extremely grateful to the Shoebox/Toolbox developers at SIL for providing the ideal linguistic database software. The .WAV files were sliced using Goldwave. For acoustic analysis and soundfile database management, I use STx - Intelligent Sound Processing.
