Description:The data were collected during the fieldtrips in 2011 and 2012. The sentences illustrate various grammatical phenomena. Most of the sentences are translated.
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 large 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 extent. 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).
The data were collected during the fieldtrips in 2011 and 2012. The sentences concern several grammatical phenomena. Most of the sentences are translated.
Garrutju is a well educated lady who has a number of jobs (such as officially registered interpreter or as head of Marthakal Homelands Respurce Centre). She is a semi-speaker of Golpa and has contributed a number sentences.
Muthali is the last fluent speaker of Golpa and has contributed a great number sentences.
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 and has contributed few sentences. Unfortunately JKL couldn't spent as much time with her as she did with JGG and JBG.
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).
