SIL's dedication to language development past and present
The SIL-PNG language survey team conducted a sociolinguistic survey of Hunjara-Kaina Ke [hkk] in Oro Province between October 20 and November 4, 2006. The goals of the survey were to establish language and dialect boundaries, to assess language vitality, to establish if there is need for a language development project, and to collect information that would help in making a decision about the nature of such a project.
