Abstract

Contrary to what sustained in Ethnologue 2015, the sociolinguistic survey conducted by the Author interviewieng 146 adult speakers in the region of Mariashoni, Mau Forest Complex, Kenya, Ogiek is still a very lively language in the district. The transmission of the language to the younger generation is still practiced and the community still hosts elder people who are monolingual in Ogiek. The competence in kiswahili is relatively high, but school attendancy is very low and the competence in English does not reach 10% of the young population. The article includes many tables referring to the context of use of the different languages spoken in the region, comprehensive of the languages of neighboring peoples (Maasai, Nandi and Kipsigis for example) and all data are presented considering gender and age sets.
