The Kewa Language Revisited
by Karl J. Franklin, Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics and SIL International

Abstract: My main work on the dialects of Kewa (Franklin 1968) outlined certain phonological, grammatical and cultural features that provided data to portray three main dialects (EK, WK and SK) and two subdialects (NW and SE). In this article I provide additional materials on the dialect and subdialect areas, as well as an assortment of grammatical, cultural and historical information. I also summarize the literacy and translation work that has been done on Kewa.
