Bullom Version of the Scriptures

Bullom Version Of The Scriptures The Bullom is a dialect of the Mandingo language, and is spoken around Sierra Leone, on the western coast of Africa. A translation of the Gospel according to St. Matthew was made into their language by the Rev. G. R. Nylander, of the Church Missionary Society, and an edition was printed by that society in 1815. No further attempts have since been made to furnish the Bulloms with the Scriptures in their native tongue. See Bible of Every Land, p. 409; for the study of the language, see Nylander, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Spelling-book of the Bullom Language (Lond. 1814). (B. P.)
