Description : The project documents the Laal language and culture. Laal is a language isolate spoken by the ca. 800 speakers in Gori and Damtar, two villages of the Moyen-Chari region of southern Chad, as well as in the Laal community settled in various towns in the country. All data were collected between 2011 and 2018. The archive contains audio and video recordings of interviews, daily life activities, stories, cultural events, songs and dances, and linguistic elicitation. Many recordings are annotated in ELAN and Toolbox-files. The archive also includes the following analytical resources: a Laal-French-English dictionary, a Laal orthography guide, a bilingual Laal-French text collection, an ethnohistorical monograph, updated maps of the Laal-speaking regionan ethnobotanical database, a botanical monograph, and musical transcriptions. The PIs of the project are Florian Lionnet and Tom Güldemann. Researchers on the team are Florian Lionnet (linguistic documentation), Sandrine Loncke (ethnomusicology), Rémadji Hoïnathy (anthropology), and Ngomdé Djasnabaye (ethnobotany).
