The Yobe Language Research Project, funded by the National Science Foundation, is engaged in assembling data on Yoba, a seldom published yet largely used language in northern Nigeria.
Drawing on the lack of documentation, plus interest in the communities in seeing their languages developed through publications in and on them, the project was launched to conduct a broad linguistic investigation, which, on the one hand, assembles data from the languages, and on the other hand, has output of interest and value to the speakers of those languages.
