SIL's dedication to language development past and present
This report presents findings from a short visit to a settlement of Zway speakers west of Asella at the shores of Lake Zway. The first results will be presented here without interpretation. Zway (Lak'i) is a language which is comparatively well-researched, with the exception of its sociolinguistic aspects and its developments during recent decades. Silt'e and Zway word lists are included in the report.
