Abstract 

This paper discusses the results of a rapid appraisal survey of the Dugwor language conducted February 17-19, 2000 in the Meri Subdivision of the Diamare Division of the Far North Province in Cameroon. The objectives of the research were to evaluate the level of intercomprehension within the Dugwor language and between Dugwor and adjacent languages, to assess the vitality of the Dugwor language, to determine the feasibility of developing literacy materials in Dugwor, to identify languages understood by Dugwor speakers, and to examine attitudes toward literacy. Group interviews and individual questionnaires were utilized. A word list was elicited.
