This research project involves initial fieldwork on Laru, a severely endangered and undocumented language of western Nigeria. This research will document and describe the language with two main goals. The first is to develop a thorough sketch of the sound system and word structure of the language. The second is to create a transcribed audio-visual corpus of narrative and conversational discourse.
