Report on the Edera district survey south coast of Irian Jaya

Author  Susanto, Yunita
Abstract 

This report covers the findings resulting from a survey along three rivers (the Ia, Dumut, and Edera) in the Edera District of Irian Jaya (Papua), Indonesia. Ron Kriens, Myo-Sook Sohn, and Jacqueline Menanti, SIL members, along with Yunita Susanto, from Kartidaya, participated in the survey. Wordlists, sociolinguistic information, and informal observations were recorded. A total of twenty villages were visited, with the focus being on the various speech varieties of Auyu. Further research needs to be done, however, before initiating a language program in Auyu. Besides intelligibility testing, a study of community development needs is also advisable.
