Abstract:

The main purpose of this survey was to determine whether the Gayil people of southwestern Ethiopia could understand and use literature in Aari, which is related to their speech variety. According to community leaders in that area, the Gayil cannot speak or understand the variety of Aari that has already been developed. This claim was investigated by means of sociolinguistic interviews and a Recorded Text Test (RTT) using literature published in Aari.
