Grassfields Bantu Fieldwork: Dschang Lexicon was produced by Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) catalog number LDC2003L01 and ISBN 1-58563-255-4.
The data contains a lexicon of the language Yémba (Bamileke Dschang), a Bamileke (Grassfields Bantu) language spoken by 300,000+ people in Southwestern Cameroon.
There are two sets of pages in HTML format: one set is 28 pages, the other is 105. In the first set, one page lists every word in the lexicon that begins with a given letter (or letter combination). In the second set, one page lists approximately 25 entries, unless there are fewer than 25 entries beginning with a given letter. The second set is more convenient for use on slower machines.
Each entry under a headword has links to two or more sound files. Two speakers were recorded; a given entry generally contains links to utterances of the headword by both speakers, as well as a laryngograph recording of the headword by the second speaker. Nouns may also have links to pronunciations of the plurals, and verbs may have links to pronunciations of the imperative and infinitive forms. These ancillary forms will in general also have laryngograph recordings.
Recorded: May 1997, Dschang, recording studio of SIL Cameroon, Yaoundé
Digitized, Labelled and Segmented: 1997-1998 Phonetics Laboratory, University of Edinburgh
