Title:A sociolinguistic survey of the Dhimba language

This survey was conducted during November 1996 and March-April 1997. The purpose of this survey was to determine whether the Scriptures should be translated into the Dhimba language. The survey was motivated by two key questions: Can Dhimba speakers understand Herero or Ndonga well enough to use the Scriptures already available in those languages? Would Scriptures in Dhimba be used? The surveyors used Parish leaders' questionnaires, individual questionnaires, recorded text tests, and pilot Scripture distributions to obtain their results.
