Description:This is a one and a half hour recording of an elicitation session with Rose Kewin. Topics include purposives, reflexives, and relative clauses.
Koro is an Oceanic (Austronesian) language spoken by several hundred people on Manus and Los Negros islands, approximately 200 miles off the north coast of the Papua New Guinea mainland. This documentation consists primarily of recorded narratives and conversations in the Papitalai dialect, spoken in Papitalai, Riu Riu, and Naringel villages.
Elicitation session
Jessica Cleary-Kemp is the PI on the project. She conducted the research on Koro during her tenure as a PhD candidate at the University of California, Berkeley.
I guessed her date of birth. Rose is the daughter of Laurence and Pauline Kewin. Pauline is Bipi and speaks the Bipi language as her first language. Rose did not learn Koro as a child, and does not have native fluency. Her first language is Tok Pisin, and she also speaks some English. She has traveled a lot and has had many different jobs. She was married to a man in the Highlands, but has since divorced him. She is Jessica Cleary-Kemp's adopted cousin (tuwa). Her nickname is "Short Rose".
