This repository is for the Toolbox version of the Nkonya Dictionary. Nkonya is a language spoken in the Volta Region of Eastern Ghana. General information about the Nkonya language are available on the Nkonya dictionary website: https://nkonya.webonary.org/
In 2017, the Nkonya dictionary was converted from Toolbox to the SIL Fieldworks Language Explorer (FLEx). The Toolbox version of the dictionary was frozen in September 2017. All future work on the dictionary will be done using FLEx. Updates to the FLEx version are posted to https://nkonya.webonary.org/
