Salvage documentation and description of South African Khoekhoe and !Ui languages


The Khoisan languages !Ora (Korana/Griqua) and !Ui of South Africa represent two different languages families, Khoe-Kwadi (a.k.a. Central Khoisan) and Tuu (a.k.a. South Khoisan), and are commonly thought to be extinct. Recent reports however confirm that scattered across the Northern Cape and Free State Provinces there are still remnant speakers of these languages. It is their speech that the project aims at describing.
