Wolof is the most widely language spoken in Senegal and is also spoken in The Gambia, and Mauritania. It is the native language of the Wolof people. Unlike most other languages of Sub-Saharan Africa, it is not a tonal language.

Banana is a Wolof word, and the English word yam is believed to be derived from Wolof/Fula nyami, "to eat food."
