Roger Blench: Endangered languages Cameroun

 

Home

 

Cameroun is a country with numerous small languages, many of which are still in inaccessible areas. A strong push by government for literacy in local languages has resulted in a relatively high degree of language development compared with neighbouring countries. I began work in Cameroun in 2008. The material is highly variable, some is only lexical, other links lead to pages with a strong visual element.
