Other Resources

In addition to Dobrin's original field recordings of Cemaun and closely related dialects of Mountain Arapesh, several other resources on Arapesh languages are collected in the AGDLA archive:

Reo Fortune's 1942 grammar of Mountain Arapesh (Rohwim dialect) is available here in digital form.

Coming soon:

A collection of line-glossed Bukiyip texts.

These were produced by linguist Robert J. Conrad over his two-decade-long station in the Arapesh region. Conrad worked in New Guinea as a mission linguist with the Bible translation organization SIL International. Hard copies of this and other materials he collected are archived in the Robert Conrad Papers, ca. 1960-1990 (MSS 732) at the UC San Diego's Tuzin Archive for Melanesian Anthropology.
