Title:A rapid appraisal sociolinguistic survey of Mundum

A rapid appraisal language survey, including a modified Group Recorded Text Test with Bafut [ALCAM 912] and Mankon [ALCAM 913] texts, was carried out in February and May 2001 in the Mundum [ALCAM 911] language community of the Northwest Province of Cameroon.
Objectives of the research were to:

  1. Assess certain sociolinguistic factors,
  2. Make a preliminary assessment of Mundum speakers' comprehension of Bafut and Mankon and other languages adjacent to Mundum, and
  3. Identify the attitudes of village residents about potentially reading and writing one or more of these languages.
It appears that Mundum is still a vital language in the home, but that speakers might have adequate access to literature in the Bafut language.
