Title Rose Porowai talks about the origins of the Pohowa-speaking communities
Description The item JN2-ORIGIN2007 involves the speaker Rose Porowai, recorded by me, in Port Moresby in November 2007. She tells a story about the origins of the Bohuai-speaking people. There is an audio file and a plain text file originally written out by Rose Porowai in October 2007 in her own orthography, revised in November 2011 with John Newman. There is a sentence by sentence free translation into English. The text file approximates in content the original audio but is not a transcription of the recording. Rose refers to the language as Pohowa.
