Documentation of Edo North languages of Nigeria through linguistic analysis of oral narrative samples that will be transcribed and translated. The project would also prepare a digital archive of the field recordings.

This project will document 15-20 endangered and rapidly fading Edo North (EN) languages spoken in Nigerian villages. For each text, the collaborators will develop interrelated orthographic and interlinear transcriptions, with English translations, that will be disseminated in print and electronic forms. The project will also archive and make accessible the original recordings.
