Linguistic Workshop on the Mehri Language

with one comment

Having visited western Oman, and gazed longingly at the border to Yemen and the Hadhramaut, I was interested to see this workshop on the indigenous language, Mehri. From the Wikipedia page:

Mehri has 70,600 speakers in Yemen, 50,800 in Oman and 14,400 in Kuwait. Population total for all countries is 135,764 (SIL estimate, 2000). Mehri speakers are known in the region as the Mahra tribe.

with 2 comments
