Lake Rudolph or Turkana

Javier Serrano Aviles, Thu, 2017-03-16 09:44

Whereas Turkana (for both the region and the lake) is the geographical reference used for other of languages in the area, it is striking that the colonial label Lake Rudolph appears in the description of Borana language. For the sake of harmonisation but also as a way of incorporating post-colonial criticism I would suggest to replace Lake Rudolph by Lake Turkana also in Borana.

Editorial Action

We will change the geographical label for Borana [gax] in Kenya from Lake Rudolph to Lake Turkana, for the 21st edition of the Ethnologue.
