  Initial SLLE Survey of the Zway AreaKlaus WedekindandCharlotte WedekindSIL International2002  2 Contents 1 Introduction2 Update: Population Estimates3 The 320-Item SLLE Word List on Zway, Provided by Beriso Sado Bedecha, with Silt'e Entries Provided by Eeva Gutt and Hussein Mohammed  3 1 Introduction  This report presents findings from a short visit to a settlement of Zway speakers west of Asella at the shores of Lake Zway. The first results will be presented here without interpretation. ∗    Zway   (Lak'i) is a language which is comparatively well-researched, with the exception of its sociolinguisticaspects and its developments during recent decades. The survey team gratefully acknowledges the help which was given by various individuals and the administrativeoffices concerned: We appreciated the preparation of explanatory letters by Ato Katamaa Wayyeessaa   and his staff (The Oromiya Council, Addis Ababa); the directions from Ato Abote   of the Showa Administration(Zway), and the enjoyable hospitality and help from the school director Getachew Eshetu Belachew   and his staff atthe shores of Lake Zway: The data were provided by Beriso Sado Bedecha.   We also appreciated the linguistic helpwhich we received from the Silt'e dictionary team, who took time to prepare a Silt'e  word list to facilitate lexicalcomparisons: thanks to Eeva Gutt and Hussein Mohammed. 2 Update: Population Estimates   The teachers Getachew Eshetu Belachew   and Beriso Sado Bedecha    provided estimates about the Zway-speaking population. The figures are those of the following sketch map; the total comes to a little less than 4000 speakers.  On the shores: Herera Mendoyu: 30 Zway speakersMek'i town: 300 Zway speakersWoch'eessa area: 1000 Zway speakersZway town: 100 Zway speakers  On the islands: Funduro: 50 Zway speakersTsedecha: 700 speakersDebre Tsiyon (Tullugiddo): 500 Zway speakersDebre Sina: noneGelila: none  Zway   (Lak'i)- speaking areas: sketch and figures(based on a sketch by Beriso Sado Bedecha)  ∗ An earlier version of this report appeared in Survey of Little-known Languages of Ethiopia S.L.L.E.
