Pulaar is a Fula language which is spoken by the Fula people and Tukolor (or Toorobe). They are primarily based in the Senegal River valley area traditionally known as Futa Tooro, as well as further south and east. Pulaar speakers, known as Haalpulaar’en live in Senegal, Mauritania, Gambia, and western Mali.
There are several dialect differences, but all are inherently intelligible.
Pulaar is classed as a different language to Pular, which is another Fula language spoken in Guinea-Conakry (including the Fouta Jallon region). Pulaar and Pular are to some extent mutually intelligible, but differences do exist.
