Contributor (speaker):Berry

Coverage:Papua New Guinea
Description:Jillian Forepiso (jf) and Berry Kuyay (bk) do the family problems picture task (San Roque et al, 2012; Barth and Evans, 2017), describing a set of picture stimuli and arranging scenes into a narrative order. They then tell the arranged story to Kadagoi Rawad Forepiso (krf) who is present in the third set of video and audio files.
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.
