Language: Madak

Source/Author:  Elsah William, Malcolm Ross 
Identifiers:  ISO-639-3:mmx  Glottocode: mada1285 
Notes:  L and I hard to distinguish as a mixture of lower and upper case forms. In many instances it looks as though the letter should be an i but there has been no dot placed above. It appears that more than one person has written the words and their letter forms have varied. 
Problems:  Andreea: I changed all the capital /I/ to small letter /i/ because upon inspecting the data file, it appears that the words were entered with a capital letter at the beginning. The same was done for /E/ (2 occ).
