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.
In addition to the researcher and speaker, Rosemary Paura, Margaret Pohu, and Rose Kewin were also present for this recording.
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.
Her mother was from Papitalai and her father was from Powat and Papitalai. I estimated her date of birth. Kristine Pat is Jessica Cleary-Kemp's adopted mother (nano). Her husband was the late Paura Pat. Her children are Julianne Paura (Paura's child by a different woman), Veronica Pat, Shirley Duma, Kennedy Paura, Jenny Paura, Steven Paura, Sandra Paura, and Rex Paura.
