Title:Koch Survey Wordlists and Sociolinguistic Questionnaire
Abstract:The following material is an appendix to the main paper - Kondakov, A. (Forthcoming). Koch Dialects of Meghalaya and Assam: A Sociolinguistic Survey. In G. Hyslop, S. Morey and M. Post, Eds. North East Indian Linguistics, Volume 5. New Delhi, Cambridge University Press India. The paper was presented at the 5th International Conference of the North East Indian Linguistic Society (NEILS), Guwahati, Assam, India, on February 12, 2010. The word lists and questionnaire have been elicited during a sociolinguistic survey in 2006-2007 in the North East Indian states of Meghalaya and Assam in order to determine the need for language development in the Koch community. Koch is a tribe of the mongoloid stock found mostly in North East India and northern parts of Bangladesh. They speak a language of the same name (ISO code: kdq). The Koch-speaking population is estimated to be between 20,000 and 30,000 persons. The word lists include the following language varieties: the standard Garo language, the Rongdani dialect of Rabha, four major Koch dialects (Tintekiya, Wanang, Harigaya, and Margan) and the Koch-Rabha variety. The questionnaire covers aspects of language and dialect use, vitality, and attitudes.
These appendices pertain to the survey on the Koch of India done in 2007. See also http://www.sil.org/silesr/abstract.asp?ref=2011-023">The Koch of Bangladesh: A Sociolinguistic Survey.
