Description:Francis Silih (fs) and Max Magop (mm), who are in-laws, (classified as brothers), answer interview questions asked by Danielle Barth. Questions include personal information, about tattoos and their cultural significance, current events such as the 2018 APEC meeting in Port Moresby, PNG and the nearby broken bridge at Banab, clans, the differences between men and women and their initiation rites, and about any long journeys taken. Audio tracks with _f indicate audio from frontal camera, tracks with _speaker initials indicate head mounted microphone tracks, video and audio captures with _oh indicate overhead camera.
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.
