Description

This series includes Capellís filed note books from around Papua New Guniea, covering various Papuan languages within the Eastern Highlands Province (but including some from Chimbu and Morobe Provinces). It includes grammatical notes, words, phrases, comparative vocabulary lists, and short texts in local languages such as Taiora-Fore, Binumarien, Asaro, Hofaya, Yamafi-Chuave, Gahuku, Pia, and Lagaria.

The Independent State of Papua New Guinea (informally, Papua New Guinea or PNG) is a country in Oceania, occupying the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and numerous offshore islands (the western portion of the island is occupied by the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Irian Jaya). It is located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, in a region defined since the early 19th century as Melanesia. Its capital and one of its few major cities is Port Moresby. It is one of the most diverse countries on Earth, with over 700 indigenous languages and at least as many indigenous societies, out of a population of just over 5 million. It is also one of the most rural, with only 18% living in urban centres.
