A Documentation and Description of the Arta language

The Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) provides grants worldwide to for the linguistic documentation of endangered language and knowledge. Grantees create multimedia collection of endangered languages. These collections are preserved and made freely available through the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) housed at the library of SOAS University of London.

This is a 12-month project, for the purpose of documenting Arta, an underdescribed language in the Philippines. Arta is a severely endangered Austronesian language, spoken by 11 Negrito people living in Nagtipinan, Quirino Province. This documentation project will create a digital corpus of audio and video recordings, transcribed and translated into Ilokano and English. This project will also include the grammatical description of the language, submitted as my Ph.D. dissertation, writing a paper on sociolinguistics of the language, and create a textbook for educational purposes. Primary investigator: Yukinori Kimoto
