Title: The Kairak (Qairaq) Writing Workshop: Moving forward with a work-in-progress orthography 
Author: Schneider, Cynthia
Date: 2011-06-02
Description: In 2008, the Qairaq community of PNG improved their language’s orthography. However, this raised further questions: Must an orthography conform to computer limitations? How much attention do marginal phonemes deserve? And when is it too late to “tinker” with an orthography? This paper considers the socio/linguistic issues embedded in such questions.
