Coverage:Papua New Guinea
Description:Clara Kusos Darr (ckd) and John Maram (jm), who are married to each other, describe 50 pictures of German people, buildings and locations. The pictures are from Terrell, Tschirner, and Nikolai, 2005, Picture File to accompany Kontakte: A Communicative Approach, 5th edition, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (ISBN: 9780072879759). This is a supplement to a German textbook. Some of the pictures have kinds of people and things that are familiar and relatable to the speakers, but many have things that are new, interesting or even confusing to the speakers. 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.
