Scope and content

Highly regarded German linguist who researched and published extensively on the languages of Africa, South East Asia and Oceania. Much of Dempwolff's Pacific field research was carried out in German New Guinea during the years 1909-14.
(See: Robert Blust, Dempwolff's contributions to Austronesian linguisitics, Afrika und Ubersee, vol. 71, no. 2, 1988, pp. 167-76)

Handwritten and typescript notes and drafts, mostly in German, on the languages of New Guinea and Tahiti, with some comparative material drawing upon some languages of South East Asia (eg: Tagalog and Malay) and New Caledonia. The bulk of the material was written by Dempwolff in preparation for academic publication during the 1920s and 1930s. Also included is some associated correspondence and some research notes made during field work. The New Guinea languages covered include Tuna (New Britain), Kate, Graged, Sia, Jabem, Adzera, and Sepa. The material on the Tahitian language draws upon information supplied by Christian Schacht.
A detailed inventory appears at the beginning of each reel.
