Title: Dictionary of Kyaka Enga, Papua New Guinea
Written By: Norm Draper
Sheila Draper
Series Title: PL 532
Description:

Kyaka is a highly distinctive dialect of Enga, the largest language of
Papua New Guinea with close to 200,000 speakers. Kyaka is spoken in the Baiyer River valley and Lumusa Plateau areas north-west of Mount
Hagen in Western Highlands Province. This dictionary is the first dictionary of Kyaka-Enga and is the most comprehensive yet produced of any dialect of Enga. The Kyaka-English part contains a wealth of ethnographic detail and illustrative examples, recorded during the authors' years of residence among the Kyaka people. There is an
English-Kyaka finder list and a number of appendices that treat terminologies for various cultural domains and for flora and fauna.
