Description:An oral account of the history of the Asimjeeg Datooga by an elder of the Law community, Welwel Qamayen. Recorded near the center of Manawa village, Issenye. Recorded with a Panasonic HC-X920K camcorder, Shure SM35 headset microphone, and Zoom H4n audio recorder. Bundle includes ELAN file (.EAF), low resolution video (.MP4), high resolution video (.MTS), Praat TextGrid (.TextGrid), and tab-delimited text (.TXT).
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.
Richard is the primary researcher of the IGS0229 grant and did most of the recordings.
A resident and elder of the Law community.
