dc.description.abstractYali is a Trans-New Guinea language, spoken in the highlands of West Papua, Indonesia. It belongs to the Dani sub-group of the West Trans New-Guinea linkage, and is spoken by approximately 30.000 people in the mountainous area north-east, east, and south-east of the city of Wamena. The Ethnologue lists Pass Valley Yali, Angguruk Yali, and Ninia Yali as three distinct languages, belonging to the Ngalik sub-group of the Dani languages. However, people from these different geographic areas seem to be able to understand and communicate with each other. The Yali themselves distinguish four different dialectal regions: Abenaho, Angguruk, Apahapsili, and Ninia. This, however, might partially also be influenced by the fact that each of these areas has its own mission station. The differences among these varieties are mostly lexical or phonological, and Abenaho and Apahapsili often agree with each other as opposed to the other two.
