Loma (Liberia)

The Loma language of Loffa County, Liberia is different from the Loma language of the Tèèn and Kulango areas of Cote d'Ivoire, and distinct from (but related to) Toma of southern Guinea, spoken in areas between Macenta and Kissidougou. Alternate names for Loma (Liberia) include Looma, Lorma, and Loghoma, while alternate names for Toma of Guinea include Toa, Toali, Toale, and Tooma. (Ethnologue, accessed 2007)

Today, Loma is written using a Latin-based alphabet. A syllabary? saw limited use in the 1930s and '40s in correspondence between Loma-speakers, but today has fallen into disuse. (Wikipedia, accessed 1 Nov 2015)
