The Nuer Lexicon was developed as part of an AHRC-funded project on Nuer morphology, hosted by the Surrey Morphology Group. The project team consists of Matthew Baerman, Oliver Bond, Irina Monich, Tatiana Reid and Bert Remijsen, and is supported by Nuer speakers in South Sudan, Kenya, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The songs in this collection were recorded as part of the project ‘Metre and Melody in Dinka Speech and Song,’ archived and archived with the British Library Sounds collection, which houses 90,000 recordings of human and non-human experience.
These recordings offer perspective on the Shilluk culture. Topics range from the beginning of life, and childhood, through growing up and marriage, to mourning. The collection was created by Otto Gwado Ayoker and Bert Remijsen with financial support from the Volkswagen Foundation.
These datasets contain data from controlled elicitations on the Dinka language.
