Description:This booklet is designed for native speakers of Me’en. It’s purpose is to assist the Me’en people in their effort to establish their language as a written medium of communication and cultural expression. It’s primary aim is not to provide people who are not Me’en with “textbook-like” explanations that will help them learn the language. Nor is it to satisfy the interested reader’s academic desire to grasp its linguistic structure. This is especially true for the section on writing tone, as tone is not marked surface-phonemically. Rather, a simple enough way of writing tone is presented that has been tailored solely to the needs of mother tongue speakers of the language. The English translation is merely meant to serve as a clue for people not speaking Me’en as their mother tongue so as to enable them to follow the line of thought in this orthography guide. The booklet represents a start, not an end, and it is hoped that it creates a discussion on how it may be improved and enlarged.
