My thesis project is about a Bantu language spoken in the Center region of Cameroon, named So (A82). The language has an oral tradition, and its alphabet has been developed very recently. Although work has been done on the A80 group for a couple of decades, little is known about So. My project aims to write a descriptive grammar of the language, comprising aspects of the phonology, phonetics and morphosyntax.
