Deposit title: Description of N|uu

This bundle contains a dictionary of N|uu with translations into English, Afrikaans and Khoekhoegowab. In addition, there are multiple audio files for all words from a range of speakers, showing both dialectal and allophonic variants. Each word is said in a frame sentence "Na ka ___", or "I say ___". The transcription system used is presented in Miller, et al. (2009). The recordings were done between 2003 and 2007, mostly in Upington, though a few recordings were done elsewhere. One of the speakers was from Olifantshoek, but was recorded in Upington, too. Miller, Amanda, Johanna Brugman, Bonny Sands, Levi Namaseb, Mats Exter & Chris Collins. (2009). Differences in airstream and posterior place of articulation among N|uu clicks. Journal of the International Phonetic Association, 39(2): 129-161.
