"Your Language is the most precious element in life that still includes all major values of your ancestors. What does that mean for your children, and your grandchildren and their future?"
The Mmala Language Committee composed of Bébiyémé Nkono Raymond, Kiolé Frédéric, Ombiono Jean, Akegni Moïse, Babissakana Bossé and Batabak Jean-Marie, met in Yaounde with SIL linguist Ginger Boyd to revise the Numala Orthography Guide. Working as a team, they carefully checked this document which will now serve all who wish to write the Numala language. Translation revisers and literacy workers will be among the first to benefit from the concise explanations and clear examples of how Numala should be written. Follow this link to see the document for yourself (Numaala Orthography Guide 2008).
It has to be said that, Numala is spoken in the Bokito Subdivision, Mbam and Inoubou Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon. SIL Cameroon is currently involved in language development projects in six additional languages of that administrative Division: Elip, Lefa, Nomaande, Nugunu, Yambeta and Yangben. For further information on any of these languages (see MMAALA).
