Lattimore 513

In this talk, I will discuss my corpus of the Ende language and other Pahoturi River languages of Papua New Guinea that I created based on the fieldwork that I did for my dissertation (Lindsey 2019). I will reveal how I developed and maintained the three important criteria for evaluating archival collections (accessibility, quality, quantity) and how this has yielded a broad research program with collaborations in sociolinguistics, typology, and linguistic structure.
