Abstract in another language

This dataset represents a collection of notes and recordings made in Haydom, Manyara, Tanzania by Herman Malleyeck, a speaker of the Gisamjanga variety of Datooga, and Andrew Harvey, a linguist (though not a specialist in Gisamjanga or any other variety of Datooga). Data was collected in April of 2021, and based on a list compiled by Herman Malleyeck.

Data in the photocopied notebook include: 1) the personal name in Gisamjanga Datooga, 2) a hypothesised source, 3) a situation by which a child may acquire the name, and 4) a ging’aweakshooda (in-law avoidance register) alternative for this name. All data and hypotheses are made by Malleyeck.

The recordings represent Herman Malleyeck pronouncing each of the names given in the notebook.
