“Chadic Lexical Database” is a project run by Olga Stolbova at the Institute of Oriental Studies in Moscow. The main goal of the project is to arrange the greater part of Chadic lexical data so far collected in kind of preliminary etymological entries. The project was presented in Prague, 2003.
Up to now three issues are available:
- Chadic Lexical Database Issue I: Letters L, N, NY, R. Moscow-Kaluga 2005
- Chadic Lexical Database Issue II: Lateral fricatives. Moscow-Kaluga 2007 (Download)
