Summary of deposit
Mehri is spoken in eastern Yemen, southern Oman and parts of Saudi Arabia. This project focusses on the human-environment relationship in eastern Yemen through documenting and analysing nature-related texts in Yemeni Mehri. As al-Mahrah is the one safe enclave in a warring country, migration is increasing on a daily basis, exacerbating endangerment of both local language and ecosystems. The project will engage trained documenters from southern Oman to train local Yemeni community members in documentation, ethical research and archiving. Trained community members will produce 2 5 hours of audio/audio-visual recordings, including 2 hours of audio-visual recordings for gesture research.
