Abstract:

This short survey was carried out in November 2000, and the report was written in 2002. The survey was undertaken with several questions in mind:

  • What is the current status of language vitality for Malimba?
  • How much do Malimba people use Duala, and do they understand it easily?
  • Could Malimba people use Duala literature?

Thus, the goal was to get an initial impression of the sociolinguistic situation in the areas of dialectology, multilingualism, language vitality, and language attitudes using the Rapid Appraisal method and wordlist elicitation.
