Description:A young male speaker from Laghangareri asks a male elder speaker from Dugwamuhosht about his personal life history, traditional farming, and traditional medicine. Recorded with a Panasonic HC-X920K camcorder, Rode NTG-2 shotgun microphone, Shure SM-35 headset microphone, and Zoom H4n audio recorder. Bundle includes high resolution video file (.MTS), low resolution video file (.MP4), ELAN file (.EAF), and Praat TextGrid file (.TextGrid).
Isimjeeg (endonym Asimjeeg) is an undocumented language variety of the Southern Nilotic family, spoken in North-Central Tanzania. Fewer than 5,000 people continue to speak Isimjeeg and its future is threatened by the loss of traditional grazing land and increased use of Kiswahili and Iraqw. The goals of this project include the development of an annotated audiovisual corpus consisting of natural speech data and elicited linguistic forms, a collection of vocal musical performances and commentary, an Isimjeeg-Kiswahili-English dictionary, and a sketch grammar that covers a variety of linguistic aspects and incorporates socio-cultural information about speakers and communities involved in the project.
A resident of the Dugwamuhosht community. He was one of the first members of the Asimjeeg Datooga to arrive in Dugwamuhosht. Husband of Ilamsa Gamay.
A resident of the Mang'ola community. Mayco's father is Asimjeeg and his mother is Bajuta. Mayco was very helpful with translation, transcription, and interviewing.
Richard is the primary researcher of the IGS0229 grant and did most of the recordings.
