This work is related to:
Jeffrey Heath & Brahima Tiote. 2019. Pere (Bere, Mbre) language of Côte dIvoire.
DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3346580 with a backup deposit in Deepblue Documents https://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/handle/2027.42/163773.
This is a moribund language which had about 30 active speakers in 2018. Heath and Tiote did fieldwork with some of these speakers. See the grammar for details. The audiofiles are for recordings in Pere language. In addition to the currently available materials, some short documentary videos are in preparation.
This work contains:
Pere text transcriptions and translations, copied from A grammar of Pere.
Pere lexicon.xlsx (spreadsheet with separate worksheets for noun, adjective, numeral, other, verb)
The various xlsx worksheets are separately duplicated as csv files, as follows:
Pere lexicon noun.csv
Pere lexicon adjective.csv
Pere lexicon numeral.csv
Pere lexicon other.csv
Pere lexicon verb.csv
flora-fauna terms are also presented in spreadsheet form:
Pere flora fauna.xlsx (all types)
The various xlsx worksheets are separately duplicated as csv files, as follows

The recordings are transcribed and translated at the end of the grammar volume. A copy of just the text translations/transcriptions is included here.
The format of each lexical worksheet (noun, adjective, numeral, verb, other) is customized for the particular stem-class, as detailed below. All worksheets have English and French translations, and a column for any comments. Some also have a Koro translation column (red in the xlsx version). Most worksheets also have columns with codings for the syllabic shape in terms of C[onsonant] and v[owel], and for the tonal melody in sequences of H[igh] and L[ow] tones, which can be used for sorting purposes. These columns are blank for some stem-classes with small numbers of forms. The blank columns would allow for the worksheets to be combined into a single worksheet.
noun and adjective: singular (unsuffixed); singular with Absolute suffix; plural with Absolute suffix; (where not predictable) plural (unsuffixed). Annotation columns include no -a (Absolute suffix is not allowed); cpd (compound status), rdp (reduplication), xC (added consonant in Absolute form), and sem (semantic category, e.g. kinship).
other: stem column codes the items as adv (adverb), aux (auxiliary verb), coord (coordinand and or or), dem (demonstrative), disc (discourse category), interrog (interrogative), neg (negation), postp (postposition), pred (predicate element such as inflections), pron (pronoun), quant (quantifier), suffix, and particle (grammatical particle).
verb: Pere Pfv (perfective stem), Pere Ipfv (imperfective stem), class (motion, consume, adj[ectival], open/shut, food, sound, stance, body, farm, impact, build, do, talk).
The flora-fauna worksheets include additional information for each entry, in addition to those in the noun worksheet for general vocabulary, described above. Each sheet has a column for Koro counterparts (red in the xlsx version) of the Pere words. The latter are given in the same format as for nouns in the regular lexical worksheet (unsuffixed singular, singular with Absolute suffix, plural with Absolute suffix, and where unpredictable unsuffixed plural). Other columns present scientific identifications (species, genus, family). The basis column indicates seen, spcm (plant specimen, with number), descrip[tion], or ex pic (from picture shown to native speaker). For plants, status indicates which species are cultivated (cult). For non-plant worksheets, code is a subcategory, such as snake versus reptile in the herp worksheet.
