Description:
A 265 item wordlist in three dialects of Kemak: Leolima, Lemia and Atsabe. Recorded in the village (desa) of Umaklaran. Three dialects were elicited in one session. In the PDF the order is: 1. Leolima (distinguished by final n → ŋ), 2. Atsabe, 3. Lemia. Though when only two forms are given these are Leolima and Lemia. (The energy of the Atsabe informant faded during the recording and he often, though not always agreed with the Lemia informant) The quotation mark " is used to mark when forms were claimed to be the same in different dialects. To make sense of the transcription in this PDF it is probably best to consult it in conjunction with Kemak and Welaun comparative wordlists (BeluWordlists.txt) in which each dialect has been separated out into different columns. The informants for different dialects were as follows: Leolima: Frengki Maubutin, and Oktofiynus Kali, Lemia: Alosiyus Maukau (from Sadi village, visiting Umaklaran when I collected this list), Atsabe: Elias Talomau. Despite the potential problems in eliciting data for three dialects at once, this was not a problem for the Leolima and Lemia data. Informants for these varieties were quite aware (and insistent) on the differences between their speech. As stated above, the Atsabe informant tended to agree with the Lemia informant, particularly towards the end of the wordlist. This was partly due to his fading energy and the fact that these dialects appear to be more similar to one another. kem20171202-UmaklaranWordlist-TextGrid.txt contains an incomplete text grid file (open in a text editor and save with .TextGrid extension) with the Indonesian prompts used to elicit words. This can be opened in Praat along with the recording to locate the recording of particular lexical items. Original file name: kem-20171202-1-Umaklaran-Wordlist. Language as given: Kemak
