The Eastern Khoisan Languages of Botswana

This project looks at Sasi and Kua, two Khoisan languages spoken in eastern Botswana. It gives special focus to documenting the rich cultural life of the speakers through video recordings, which help inform the resulting grammars and dictionaries. An important component of this work is its availability to the local communities, citizens of Botswana, and other linguists in a user-friendly, open access web portal.
