Abstract 

This report presents further findings from a survey trip of two weeks (February 16-28, 1994) to Begi, to villages surrounding Begi, and to Asosa. Some finding from a short trip to the Metahara area are also included. The purpose of the trip was to identify the areas where varieties of the so-called "Mao" and "Koma" languages are spoken, to elicit the S.L.L.E. word lists of Hozo and Seze, and to gather sociolinguistic information about these groups, especially concerning the vitality of the smaller groups. The report includes word lists from Hozo and Seze varieties.
