SIL's dedication to language development past and present
The Kaki Ae language was surveyed by SIL in 1993. When the survey was eleven years old there were some new questions about the current language vitality situation; therefore, a survey focusing on the vitality of Kaki Ae was conducted in July 2004. This survey team found that Kaki Ae is still vital.
