Summary of the collection

The deposit is a result of a documentation project of documentation of Oinam, a dialect of Poumai Naga, funded by ELDP between 2022-2024. The project will be a collaborative work with a group of native-speaker researcher who get involve in the design of the deposit content as well as in the collection, transcription and translation of the data. The deposited data will consist of fifty hours of audio-video recordings of natural conversions from different genre.

 

Group represented

The group in this collection are Onaeme (also called as Ngimai in Poula). They dwell in Oinam Hill village in Senapati of Manipur, northeast India. Oinam Hill is one of the Poumai Naga villages, and is grouped under Lapaona circle; Poumai Nagas live in over 100 villages, mostly in Manipur and few in Nagaland. Apart from the natives living in Oinam village, Oinam dialect is unintelligible for other community members of Poumai Naga villages. For this reason, the people of Oinam are compelled to learn Poula— a koine language used and accepted by all the members of Poumai Naga.

 

Collection contents

The collection will include fifty hours of audio-video recordings of natural conversions from different genre. More details will be updated soon.
