Title:A sociolinguistic survey among the Bakossi

The survey was conducted January 1991 in the Tombel Subdivision among speakers of Lower Bakossi, and in the Bangem Subdivision among speakers of Upper Bakossi, Nninong and Elung/Nhia. The key issues the survey addressed were 1) should the Bakossi language be developed? and 2) if so, which variety should be used as the reference dialect? The purpose was to obtain the views of native speakers as to the extension of each of the dialects of their language, the type of linguistic differences between the varieties, the percieved ease of difficulty in comprehension, and the locations of neighboring languages.
