Title OUT OF PAPUA Project
Description This collection contains language data of multiple languages of the proposed West Papuan language family that are collected for the purposes of the OUTOFPAPUA project. The OUTOFPAPUA project combines urgent documentation of endangered languages in Indonesia with rigorous investigation of a linguistic puzzle that has important implications for our understanding of both Melanesian and Southeast Asian prehistory. Some two dozen Papuan languages, scattered over a 1000km on and around the Bird's Head of West Papua, show signs of sharing a common origin. The OUTOFPAPUA project aims to test the hypothesis that these languages belong to a single West Papuan language family, and to investigate the possibility that their distribution reflects a migration of Papuan people, in relatively late prehistoric times, from the New Guinea mainland outward and westward into the Indonesian archipelago.
