Description:Berry Kuyau leads Danielle Barth into a work area in the bush where he and John Bogg are shaping canoes out of tree trunks. Berry and John describe the process and tools used. The three walk back to Masikan, a family area of Matukar village, and talk, joke and tease with Kadagoi Rawad Forepiso.
Matukar Panau is a highly endangered Oceanic language spoken near Madang, Papua New Guinea. Although most children are no longer learning Matukar Panau, current speakers (apx. 300) form a vibrant community of multilinguals in dense social networks. As an Oceanic language on the PNG coast, Matukar Panau has many interesting Papuan features. No language of this area has a large corpus available. This project aims to produce 47 hours of audio-visual recordings and a 200,000+ word corpus. Recordings will focus on conversations where participants are varied by age, gender, clan, social connections and differing language portfolios to document speaker interaction. Pairs of speakers will discuss life, customs, and family and will respond to stimuli-based activities. Transcription and translation of data into the PNG lingua franca, Tok Pisin, will be done with an existing trained local team.
