Item Summary

Title:Usage and Decline of the Dual Number in Kala
Contributors:Ransdell-Green, Margaret (speaker)
Date Issued:03 Mar 2019
Description:In Kala, an endangered Austronesian language of Papua New Guinea, the dual number exists in multiple elements of the grammar, but has been falling out of use due to language shift over time. This paper examines how this shift has been occurring and how the dual is used (or not used) across different generations of speakers. (session 1.5.3)
