Abstract

Gizey is a Masa languoid spoken in Cameroon and Chad. It has often been described as a dialect of Masana (ISO 639-3: mcn), however, recent findings have highlighted several linguistic features which may warrant its classification as a distinct language within Masa. So far, there has been only a fragmentary attempt at a description of Gizey. The languoid is currently under active description and aspects of the language practices of its speakers are being documented.
