Remo, also known as Bonda, Bondo, and Bondo/Nanga Poroja (in Remo remosam), has several thousand speakers. Remo is known mostly from a few sources, Fernandez (1968), some of which is published as (1983) from the Hill Remo (Muɳɖlipaɖa) dialect, Ramachandra Rao’s phonological materials, Swain’s study and Bhattacharya’s (1968) brief text and more extensive lexical materials, which are mostly of the Plains Remo variety. In the following discussion, Remo is used to mean either Hill Remo alone or the Hill and Plains dialects together. The data presented in this chapter are drawn from Fernandez (1968), Bhattacharya (1968) and from field work carried out by the authors in 2005 and 2007, which included digital video and audio of Remo speakers (attributed as [SDM] in the chapter, representing our primary consultant Sukra Dangada-Majhi).
