Summary of the deposit

Kujirerai is a Jola language spoken in the Casamance region of Senegal, spoken by only a few hundred people in the village of Brin and the surrounding area. Although the language is vital within this small community, speaker numbers are dwindling as people migrate to urban areas in search of work. The aims of the project are to document instances of language use within this community, particularly in the domain of the traditional practices involved in wet rice cultivation, and provide a preliminary description of the language paying particular attention to aspects of nominal and verbal morphology.

 

Deposit contents

This collection of recordings of members of the Kujireray speech community contains fables and descriptions of various aspects of life in the village such as rice cultivation, fishing, and construction.
