SIL's dedication to language development past and present
This report presents findings from a linguistic survey which was carried out in the administrative area of the North Omo Zone, the South Omo Zone, and the Kafa Zone from February 28 to March 2, 1995. The purpose of the trip was to gather a word list in order to identify the language and compare it to others, and to gather data on sociolinguistic factors in order to assess the status of the language. The report contains a word list of the Dime variety.
