Summary of deposit
This project produces 3 short films documenting the Aretyry dialect of Kari’nja as well as cultural practices. Films are recorded, edited, transcribed, translated, and subtitled. In addition, a 3,000 entry Kari’nja-Dutch-English dictionary with Sranan Tongo word list are produced. These materials will serve the needs of the speech community for language materials in support of their newly-instituted formal revitalization program, as well as those of the academic community for descriptions of this under-documented language. This project has the full participation of speech community members who are valued partners in all aspects of the documentation endeavour.
