Title: The Nuer Language
Written By: Diedrich Westermann
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

The Nuer who have received their name from their neighbours, the Dinkas,
Shilluks and Arabs, live in several separate sections in the Anglo-Egyptian
Sudan, and partly in Western Abyssinia. The Nuers belong to the Nilotic group.
The materials for this work were collected during a stay in Khartoum and on
Doleib Hill, a mission station. The study contains sections on sounds, parts of
speech, short sentences, and a vocabulary (Re-edition; originally published
1912 in Berlin: MSOS XV, III Abt.: 84-150, written in English).
