Summary of deposit
Qaqet is spoken by 6000 speakers in Papua New Guinea in highly multilingual settings. These settings have consequences for the transmission - and hence the long-term survival - of the language: children in coastal villages no longer grow up with Qaqet as their dominant language, while children in interior villages speak Qaqet dominantly only until school age. This pilot project aimed to collect a preliminary corpus of sociolinguistic information, child-directed speech and children's narratives. This corpus forms the basis for a future comprehensive documentation of language socialisation and transmission practices, which will enable us to better understand how languages can become endangered.
