The ‘Malawi Lexicon (MALEX) Project is being funded by the Norwegian Council for Higher Education Programme for Development (NUFU). The main objective of the project is to develop and compile glossaries for technical terms in three Malawian languages: Chichewa, Citumbuka and Ciyawo. The project, which started in 2007, will run up to 2011.
CLS is currently compiling a Ciyawo monolingual dictionary with funding from the Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS). It is expected that the work will be completed later this year.
