San (Samo) is a language spoken in Burkina Faso. It belongs to the Volta-Niger branch of Eastern Mande. This study of San narrative texts draws on the text analysis framework developed by Dooley and Levinsohn. It includes sections on participant reference, reported speech, information foregrounding and backgrounding, and word order variation and its implications.

The analysis is supported throughout by a large number of interlinearised examples. This book will be of particular interest to researchers working on other Mande languages and to those engaged in cross-language study of particular discourse features.
