I think you accidentally posted the same thing twice, Mass.

The "Mende Grammar Essentials" is no way related to the Mende language spoken in Sierra Leone. Maybe there is another language called Mende spoken in Papua New Guinea.

There's this:

I've actually thought about learning Mende (as in African Mende) before, but only if I could find a dictionary of some sort. (Preferably to and/or from English)

You are right. I thought that textbook was about the Mende language spoken in Africa. I'll delete the link.

Thanks for these resources! I'm pretty interested in this language in particular because I've been studying Krio, and it has some influence from Mende and Temne, which are both spoken in Sierra Leone.
