Description:
DATA SET NAME: Bandung Indonesian DATA SET DESCRIPTION: Bandung is Indonesia's second largest city, but is also the capital of Priangan, the Sundanese speaking region of western Java. Practically all of its ethnic Sundanese inhabitants, as well as many members of the Chinese community and other long-term migrants, are bilingual in Sundanese and Indonesian. This has brought about a strong Sundanese influence on the variety of Indonesian spoken in the city. This variety seems to be closely related to Jakarta Indonesian, which also has significant Sundanese influence, but this influence is naturally much stronger in Bandung, and extends to the phonology, morphology, and syntax, as well as the lexicon. PROJECT NAME: Malayic Languages of Java PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A corpus of naturalistic speech from two Malayic languages of Java: Bandung Indonesian and Cina Benteng Malay. HOW TO CITE: Tadmor, Uri, 2009. Malayic Languages of Java. 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.
