Tatiana Reid, The University of Edinburgh
Small Grant. Duration: 2010-2011. £9,969
The project is concerned with documentation and description of Thok Reel – a minority language of Southern Sudan spoken by approximately 50,000 people known as Atuot (Lakes State, Yirol West; Latitude: 6.557, Longitude: 30.504). Thok Reel is under threat from increasing use of Dinka, a language spoken by approximately 1.5 million people. The documentation part will focus on documenting the oral history of the Atuot. The descriptive part will provide a descriptive analysis of morphosyntax.
