Summary of deposit

Baba'1 is a non-written language spoken by a community of people in the village of Baba'1, in the Ndop plain, North West province of Cameroon. It is is one of the many Grassfields Bantu languages assigned to the Benuc-Congnsubdivision. This sub-division falls under one of the major African language families referred to as Niger-Kordofanian.

The community and especially the chief of the village and the school teacher are very much concerned with the preservation of their language and traditional stories, and they have supported the project. The field trip enables the collection of more systematic data from a wider variety of speakers and situations, and more cultural data.
