Description:
This collection will contain extensive documentation of Shangaji, a Bantu language spoken in the Nampula province of Mozambique. Shangaji is an endangered language and hitherto largely undocumented. There will be three types of data: texts reflecting a wide range of communicative events, wordlists with special attention to cultural specific terminology, and analytic material. All the data will be provided with metadata descriptions that include: information about the content, description of the specific context, and comments by speakers. Primary data will include pictures, tapes, sound files and video footage. The documentation will also result in products such as a dictionary, a collection of annotated texts and a grammatical sketch. The materials in this collection constitute the final part of a larger documentation effort involving the so-called Swahili languages of Mozambique. The existence of these languages related to both Swahili and languages of the interior proves that the early spread of Swahili reached far into Mozambique.
