Title:A Sociolinguistic Profile of the Abadi Language Group
Abstract:The Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) conducted a sociolinguistic survey of the Lala, Abadi, and Toura languages for two weeks during June and July 2003 in the Central Province of Papua New Guinea. Observation and sociolinguistic interviews were used to investigate language vitality and speakers’ attitudes toward neighbouring languages. Additionally, interviews with community leadership were used to investigate interest in language development. It was found that the Abadi language is currently vital, although indicators suggest that vitality may decrease in coming years. Abadi speakers hold a positive attitude toward their language and community leaders are interested in language development.
