New Caledonia and Indonesia

Permanent URI for this collection

This collection contains a variety of genres from several languages of New Caledonia and Indonesia. The bulk of the collection contains data from Hawu (hvn), a language of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The Hawu collection consists of folk stories, narratives, conversations about cultural practices, and spatial and grammatical elicitation tasks. Hawu is spoken by approximately 1000,000 people on the islands of Savu and Raijua. There are five major dialects: Seba, Dimu (also Timu), Liae, Mehara (also Mesara), and Raijua. Most of the data comes from the Seba dialect with some representation from other dialects. The ongoing project began in 2019 on the island of Savu and would not have been possible without the generous welcome and expert native knowledge of Leonardo Lede Lay and Naomi Thomas Mare who have collected most of the documentation. The project was generously funded by the National Science Foundation and the Bilinski Foundation. Other inclusions in the collection include wordlists and Frog Story elicitation from female speakers of Ampenan Sasak (sas; West Nisa Tenggara, Indonesia) and topological relations data from Drehu (dhv; New Caledonia), Paicî (pri; New Caledonia), Nyelâyu (yly; New Caledonia), and Cèmuhî (cam; New Caledonia).
