Documenting Sasi (huc)

The Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) provides grants worldwide to for the linguistic documentation of endangered language and knowledge. Grantees create multimedia collection of endangered languages. These collections are preserved and made freely available through the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) housed at the library of SOAS University of London.

The PI will document the Sasi (huc) language spoken by fifteen remaining elderly speakers in two villages in eastern Botswana, Mokgenene and Poloka. The documentation will focus on video footage of the remaining speakers using their language. The video footage will be transcribed, glossed and translated using FLEx and ELAN. All materials will be archived at ELAR and also made available on an easy to use public internet portal. Primary investigator: Chris Collins
