Title:Annotation of the lion and the hyena story
Documentation and description of Zerenkel language, an Afro-Asiatic language of Chad belonging to the East language family
Description:This is the annotation and translation of the bundle The Lion and the Hyena I whose I presented only the video in my first deposit.
Zerenkel is an undocumented and endangered language spoken by circa 3000 rural inhabitants of the Guera region of Chad. This project aims to document a range of communicative events associated with highly endangered practices such as marriage rites, which are being lost to the community, and produce a phonology and grammar sketch. Due to a number of factors, the Zerenkel language and culture is under threat. Fortunately, in 2005, members of the community formed an association to develop and promote their language. This project will be undertaken in close collaboration with the community and aims to develop multilingual language and socio-cultural resources for the community.
The Lion and the hyena organized the grazing of their cattle in turns. One day while the hare was going to keep the herd, the cow of the hyena gave birth. However, the Lion claimed the calf saying that it was its bull which gave birth. After a serious dispute, the Lion and the Hyena went to the chief of village for judgment. All wild animals were there. The squirrel came late to the judgment but succeeded subtly to push the Lion to declare that ‘males don't give birth’. Then, the hyena won the suit.
