Totoli ist eine Sprache, die im nördlichen Zentral-Sulawesi gesprochen wird. Obwohl sie üblicherweise als eine Sprache der Tomini-Tolitoli Gruppe bezeichnet wird, ist ihre genetische Abstammung unklar. Sie besitzt einige einzigartige strukturelle Charakteristika, die eine besondere Rolle in der Geschichte der austronesischen Valenzsysteme spielen (voice and applicatives). Obwohl die Sprechergemeinschaft heute eine muslimische Gesellschaft ist, die sich an den Werten des modernen indonesischen Mainstreams orientiert, haben die älteren Sprecher eine Reihe von Sprechritualen früherer Kulturformen bewahrt; dazu gehört auch eine Form eines verbalen Kampfes, der "Lelegesan" genannt wird. In diesem Projekt wird besonderes Gewicht auf die Einbeziehung von Daten aus Konversation in die Dokumentation gelegt, da dieses Genre meist in den Dokumentationen von Minoritätensprachen in Indonesien fehlt. Ein anderes Ziel ist die Vermittlung von Kompetenz im Bereich der Sprachdokumentation durch lokale und nationale Workshops in Indonesien.
Totoli is a language of northern Central Sulawesi still spoken by at most 5000 speakers. Although it is commonly named as a member of the Tomini-Tolitoli group, its genetic affiliation is unclear. It has some apparently unique structural characteristics which are of central importance to the history of Austronesian valency changing systems (voice and applicatives). While the Totoli speech community nowadays is a Muslim society adhering to the values and aspirations of the modern Indonesian mainstream, the older speakers still master a broad variety of verbal arts, including a form of verbal battling called “lelegesan”. In this project a special effort is being made to include conversational materials in the documentation as this genre is mostly missing in the existing documentations of minority languages in Indonesia. Another aim is a contribution to capacity building in the domain of language documentation through local and national workshops in Indonesia.
Anita, the daughter of SK and Nur, and her daughter Vivi were also present.
