Keuw field recordings
The media files on this page accompany my article on Keuw:
- Kamholz, David. 2012. The Keuw isolate: Preliminary materials and classification. In Harald Hammarström and Wilco van den Heuvel (eds.), History, contact, and classification of Papuan languages, 243-268. Special issue of Language and Linguistics in Melanesia. Port Moresby: Linguistic Society of Papua New Guinea. PDF
You can access my audio recordings and ELAN files on Dropbox here. The sessions are in Indonesian / Papuan Malay. Not everything is transcribed in the ELAN files; transcriptions in the article should be taken as authoritative. The following is a brief summary of the files and their contents:
