Abstract

Kaulong is spoken by about 4000 people living in an area bounded by the Palix River to the east and the Alimbit River to the west and stretching from the coastal hinterland of southwest New Britain to the base of the Whiteman mountain range, as well as in a number of villages east of the Palix. The eastern dialect of Kaulong is spoken in the latter, the western dialect in villages just east of the Alimbit, whilst the area in between is divisible into northern and southern dialects. The data on which this sketch is based were collected at Au village in the area of the northern dialect.
