language documentation

This department is tasked with saving endangered African languages so the African story is preserved. We aim at ensuring that an African man’s language is operative in at least one of the domains he occupies. We are able and willing to partner with Alcalan, UNESCO, AU, public and private bodies including NGOs.

The tools employed by this team encompass:

  • Codification (alphabet)
  • Lexification (grammar)
  • Literacy (folklore)
  • Digitization (digitizing a language’s content)
  • Advocacy (championing languages)
