This submission contains lexicographic materials on Shilluk, in a table format, and recordings on which these lexicographic data are based. For each of over 530 lemmas, we provide a phonological transcription (field1), an orthographic transcription (field2), word class identification (field3), illustrative forms (field4), and explanation of the meaning (field5). When a form is underlined, this means that it has been recorded. These recordings are also included. These audio recordings represent the voice of the second author, a native speaker of Shilluk who grew up in Tonga, the southernmost Shilluk town; they are also made publicly available. The phonological analysis on which the transcription is based is laid out in Remijsen, Ayoker & Mills (2011). This analysis was later revised in relation to the tone system (Remijsen & Ayoker 2014). The data in this dataset were collected from June 2014 to July 2015.
