Further documentation on the Loma language and script

Balla Koevogui, an intrepid taxicab driver and former elementary school teacher who lives in West Haven, returned to his home country of Guinea earlier this year for a visit and picked up some documents relating to the Loma language and script.  I am posting them here for the convenience of fellow researchers.

Update #1:  While one of the 1940’s-era Loma texts has been transcribed and partially translated (“Loma Text”, above), two more have surfaced from the same source that are as yet untranscribed and untranslated.  I am posting them here in case anyone wants to start deciphering them.
