Scientific framework and objectives

The objective of this study is to establish an extensive overview of the lexical diversity among the Bantu language varieties of Gabon, and of the spatial distribution of the elements that make up this diversity. It also proposes regional reconstructions (etyma) on the basis of lexical data collected over more than 30 years, in the form of a database. Amongst other things, the latter will allow a better understanding of the mechanisms which have contributed to the local lexical diversity.
