Nuer (Naadh)

Nuer is a member of the Western Nilotic group of the Nilo-Saharan languages spoken in southern Sudan and western Ethiopia by about 800,000 people.

Nuer is written with a version of the Latin alphabet using an orthography adopted at the Rejaf Language Conference in 1928 which has been modified to some extent by missionaries since then.
