Abstract:

On 23 March 2006 the SIL-Papua New Guinea language survey team visited Mungkip village in Morobe Province, where the Mungkip language is spoken. The goals of the survey were to identify the boundaries of the Mungkip language and to evaluate its vitality. The language was found to have low vitality; language shift toward Uri and Tok Pisin has taken place, and there are currently only a few Mungkip speakers.
