This section provides access to manuscripts and conference handouts based on ongoing field research into Eleme
Fieldnotes were generated from two sources. Most recently from a four month period of fieldwork in Eleme itself (Feb - July 2003), working with a variety of language consultants in both formal elicitation sessions and different spontaneous speech environments.
The second source of information and basis for the earlier work is elicitation sessions with Enu Obari Ekaakaa Metian, our language teacher and consultant in Manchester. They represent several hours of elicited material and spontaneous speech from Enu in sessions with either Oliver Bond, or Greg Anderson. Some of the downloadable documents to the right are adapted from my MA thesis: Topics in Eleme Grammar.> Download requirements
