Abstract

This corpus contains linguistic and cultural data on Ikaan, a dialect of Ukaan, which is spoken in two villages in south-western Nigeria. This research project behind the corpus investigates phonetic and phonological variation among speakers based on a documentation of language around, knowledge of and practices in food, food production and farming, with a special focus on the New Yam Festival. The data was collected by Sophie Salffner, linguist and principal investigator of the project, Maria Tzika, visual anthropologist of the project, and the community members themselves. Outputs of the project include an annotated audiovisual documentation corpus with data from a wide range of speakers, but also an anthropological visual map and a series of short documentary films around the festival.
