A Sociolinguistic Survey of the Ganza, Komo, and "Baruun be Magtole" Language Groups

Author  Krell, Amy
Abstract  This report describes a language survey conducted in April 2007 among people speaking Ganza, Komo, and “Baruun be Magtole.” These languages are spoken in villages close to the village of Yabus in Blue Nile Province, Sudan. Wordlists and interviews were used to obtain data. The main goals of this survey were to identify languages spoken in the Yabus area of Sudan and to assess the need for language development projects among these language groups. Concepts of ethnolinguistic identity, linguistic relationships, comprehension, multilingualism, language vitality, and language attitudes were investigated in order to meet the goals.
