Description:
DATA SET NAME: Jakarta DATA SET DESCRIPTION: Betawi is the indigenous Malay dialect of Jakarta. The speakers were formed from the mixing of ethnicities coming to Jakarta during Dutch colonial times. The inflows were adequately gradual to let the constant stream of immigrants be absorbed into a distinct ethnic group. This ethnic group speaks with their own dialect called Betawi Malay which is different from other dialects of Malay. Nowadays it is only spoken by older people in certain villages on the outskirts of the city. The younger generation tends to speak Jakarta Indonesian. The project was started in June 2004. There have been twelve recordings which are collected randomly from the speakers who live or have lived in some regions in Jakarta. The regions are Kampung Melayu, Pasar Rebo, Pondok Gede, Ulujami, and Jagakarsa. Most of the regions, except Kampung Melayu, are situated on the outskirts of Jakarta. Pasar Rebo is situated at the very southeast edge of Jakarta, bordering Bogor, West Java. Pondok Gede is also situated at the very southeast edge of Jakarta, bordering Bekasi and Bogor, West Java. Ulujami is situated in South Jakarta, bordering Banten, West Java and Jagakarsa is situated in South Jakarta, bordering Depok, West Java. There are around fifteen native speakers from the total recordings, the speakers are above thirty years old. They still speak with a deep Betawi accent. The rest of the speakers are from younger generation and other ethnicities. For future plan, more recordings will be done with the native speakers from other areas of Jakarta.

HOW TO CITE: Gil, David, and Uri Tadmor, 2015. Jakarta Indonesian. A joint project of the Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology and the Center for Language and Culture Studies, Atma Jaya Catholic University. ------------------------------------ Jakarta Field Station, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, 1999-2015. From 1999 to 2015, the Department of Linguistics of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI-EVA), under the directorship of Bernard Comrie, maintained a Field Station in Jakarta, Indonesia, hosted by Universitas Katolik Indonesia Atma Jaya. The Jakarta Field Station (JFS) was headed by David Gil, with Uri Tadmor (1999-2009) and John Bowden (2010-2015) as the local managers, and Bradley Taylor in charge of data management. The MPI-EVA JFS engaged in a variety of projects involving the documentation, description and analysis of the languages of Indonesia. The major focus was on the compilation of corpora of naturalistic speech, while an additional focus involved the development of lexical databases. The largest single project of the JFS was a longitudinal study of the acquisition of Jakarta Indonesian by 8 young children, resulting in a naturalistic speech corpus of over 900,000 utterances. Additional child-language projects studied the bilingual acquisition of Jakarta Indonesian and Javanese, and of Jakarta Indonesian and Italian. Adult-language projects focused primarily on varieties of Malay/Indonesian and other Malayic languages, on dialects of Javanese, and on Land Dayak languages, while smaller projects covered a variety of other languages. The largest corpora are from Malayic varieties of Sumatra (over 470,000 utterances), Malayic varieties of West Kalimantan (over 330,000 utterances), Javanese dialects (over 130,000 utterances), Eastern varieties of Malay (over 120,000 utterances), Land Dayak languages of West Kalimantan (over 100,000 utterances), and Jakarta Indonesian (over 75,000 utterances). While much of the work took place in Jakarta, the JFS also maintained a branch field station in Padang, hosted by Universitas Bung Hatta, plus additional field sites of a more ad hoc nature in locations such as Kerinci, Jambi, Pontianak, Ternate, Kupang and Manokwari. Several of the JFS projects benefited from collaboration with other institutions, including LIPI (the Indonesian Institute of Sciences), the Australian National University, KITLV, the University of Delaware, the University of Naples "L'Orientale", Yale University, and others. Scholars citing MPI-EVA JFS data are expected to provide appropriate acknowledgement. Citations of data from individual projects should be made in the way specified at the project level. Alternatively, the entirety of the JFS data may be cited collectively as follows: Gil, David, Uri Tadmor, John Bowden and Bradley Taylor (2015) Data from the Jakarta Field Station, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, 1999-2015.
