Documentation of Pna 'oral traditions' in Koto Keras, Kerinci, Indonesia

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 project aims at documenting Pna (oral traditions, lyrical prose) that is threatened in the Koto Keras (henceforth, KK) dialect of Kerinci. Located in Sumatra, Indonesia, the population of KK is 1581 but less than 800 people speak the language since 50% of the population consists of immigrants from elsewhere in Indonesia. This project will produce a database of Pna, including annotated transcriptions, translation, 10-hour video and audio recordings, and Pna compilation film. Primary investigator: Ernanda Ernanda
