Sampling description Interviewers sought appropriate interviewees who were adult, mother-tongue speakers of Khoekhoegowab in their communities. The 502 cases analyzed were evenly distributed from the different regions of the country, 30% from the more Damara-identified North, 20% from the more Damara-identified East, 24% from the central region around Windhoek, and 27% from the heavily Nama-identified South. Age ranged from 18 to 77 years (M = 35; SD = 11; 58% women).

Weighting information
Response rate
Data completeness Data quality was assessed, and cases were excluded based on the following criteria: Marked for exclusion by interviewer or auditor due to major issue with interview; usually these surveys were not completed (16). Participant under age 18 (25). More than 10% (>29) item responses missing (37). Score of inconsistency 2 or higher, calculated by averaging the absolute difference in rating given to nine items that were duplicated on the survey (12). Personal total correlation outliers, < -.20 (12). Note that in a few cases some specific item responses were also removed. These were specific items that were elicited incorrectly at the beginning of the survey due to a misunderstanding of the proper tone to use for the word, assessed by interviewer report and subsequent audio review by the [second author]. They include 144 responses for ǃgâisib (item 159); 27 for sorasá (item 61); 20 for sorasà (item 105), and 48 total for six other items.
