Dear Sir or Madam I would like you to please add the following information about Gyong(Kagoma) on your website. 1. The indigenous name is Gyong while the speakers are referred to as Gong. Kagoma is a colonial name given by Hausa speakers. Is it possible for Gyong be reflected on Ethnologue website instead of Kagoma? 2. Apart from Grammar, extensive study has been done on the Phonology and Classification of Gyong. Kyari, J (2005) Agreement and Concord Phenomena in Gyong ( Kagoma), PhD Thesis , SOAS University of London.
