The lexemes in this wordlist are directly related to the semantic domain of animals and stem from the Minderico glossaries published by the community in the past. These words, their meanings and their contexts of use were checked with three language consultants (MD009, MD016 and MD024). Several words, mainly the ones not listed in the existent glossaries, were extracted from the collected material or stem from fieldwork notes by Vera Ferreira. Each word was read aloud by MD024 and is illustrated with examples from the collected data.
