Title:A Sociolinguistic Survey of Anem

This survey was undertaken to assess the vitality of the Anem [anz] language, which is found on the north coast of West New Britain (WNB) Province, Papua New Guinea. Anem is spoken in four villages and is used as the medium of instruction in three elementary prep schools. In order to assess vitality, the team used observation, participatory methods, and conducted interviews guided by the SIL-PNG sociolinguistic questionnaires. The survey team found the language vital despite the highly multilingual nature of the Anem people and the addition of Tok Pisin to domains that used to be the sole territory of Anem.
