Description:HNG (Golpa speaker) introduces herself in Golpa. She also uses a number of Djambarrpuyngu words.
The aim of the project is to produce an annotated and illustrated Golpa story book about the Golpa people, their land and culture. Golpa is a severely endangered YolNGu language (Yirritja moiety) spoken on Elcho Island, Northern Territory, Australia. Most stories in the book are part of a hugh collection of audio recordings made back in the 1960s. The narrator of these texts is the father of today's Golpa speakers/consultants. Until this project these texts have never been processed. There are only very few Golpa left who still speak and/or understand the language to a considerable extend. The processing of these recordings will reveal and document linguistic and cultural knowledge about a dying Australian indigenous group and make it accessible to the community as well as to researchers. This project is the first attempt to document and describe the Golpa language (and culture).
Nyomba introduces herself in Golpa.
HNG used a number of DjambarrpuyNGu words in her text.
Nyomba is a well educated lady who has a number of jobs (such as officially registered interpreter or as office staff at Centre Link). She is a semi-speaker of Golpa. Unfortunately JKL and HNG couldn't spend much time with each other during field trips.
JKL has been in touch with the Golpa since 2008 via phone. They first met and worked together in 2009, then again in 2011 and 2012. She has spent a total of approx. 5 months in the field. JKL has carried out all field trips together with her little son (which resulted in wonderful social contacts with the locals and more natural work sessions).
