This dataset consists of transcriptions of a number of forms of intransitive verbs from several dialects of Dinka. The dataset was collected in order to investigate the existence of an adjectival word class in the Dinka language, for the paper “On the nature of adjectives: evidence from Dinka,” to be published in Glossa: a journal of general linguistics.
