Title:Picture Task: Family Problems (DVO)
Picture Task: Family Problems
Morehead: Languages of Southern New Guinea
Description:The main aim of the picture task is to record rich data about a wide range of categories relevant to psycho-social cognition, including both narrative and interactive material. A focus within this is to elicit data that includes a high amount of speech and thought reporting, reference to emotion, and/or is collected in situations of explicit knowledge symmetry and asymmetry (i.e., where it is clear to all that the speech event participants do/do not all have access to the same information simultaneously). Material from the picture task can contribute to a wide range of studies, for example concerning comparative narratology, information structure, cultural tropes, and the effects of rehearsal on performance, among many others. Images and instructions are archived here. Keywords: Elicitation; Family Problems; DVO
This project focuses on collecting multimedia documentation of multiple undescribed Papuan languages – Nen and Nambu (Morehead-Maro) and Kmntso (Tonda). Other nearby languages will have varrying degrees of description, including Idi, Nama, and Neme. All of these languages belong to an almost completely unknown family in Southern New Guinea. Based at the Australian National University in Canberra, plus collaborations with the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, and the PNG National Herbarium, the project will embed a German PhD student (Christian Döhler) in a team including a seasoned field linguist (Nick Evans) and a post-doc (Julia Colleen Miller), two Germany-based typologists (Bernard Comrie and Volker Gast) from the FAUST (Future Archive User Simulation Team), plus participation on targeted fieldtrips by ethnobiologist Chris Healey (ANU) and botanist Kipiro Damas (PNG National Herbarium, Madang). Particular foci of the documentation will be the natural world (especially ethnobotany and ethnoornithology), swidden cultivation, fire management and ethnoecology, mythology, auto-ethnography, ethnomathematics, and microvariation in language use in a situation of daily multilingualism.nichola
