Abstract 

This report presents the results of a rapid appraisal research study among the speakers of Akum in the North West Province of Cameroon. This study was carried out with the intention of making a preliminary assessment of the need to develop a written form of the Akum language and to determine the possible scope of a literacy project. Similarly, being preliminary, this study was expected to identify any questions that needed further research before a final recommendation could be make. This research was conducted in 2001.
