The Mehri texts collected by T.M. Johnstone and published by Harry Stroomer (1999) are an extremely valuable source for the study of the Mehri language, and it was on these texts that I based the first edition of my own Mehri grammar (2010). However, the original Arabic-letter manuscripts made by the native speaker, along with the accompanying audio recordings, reveal that the draft manuscripts on which Stroomer’s edition was based are replete with errors. A study of the original texts and audio provide a large number of corrected readings and additions, many of which have an effect on an analysis of Mehri phonology and morphology.
