Who is Jesus? - Abau

ISO Code : aau

Glottolog Code: abau1245

Abau is a Papuan language spoken in the Sandaun Province of Papua New Guinea, primarily along the shores of the Sepik River. Abau is reported to have whistled speech.

Wikipedia states that in 2002, there were estimated to be between 4,500 and 5,000 speakers, and this number does not appear to have declined since the first accurate count in the 1970s. The Joshua Project however, puts the number of speakers at 11,000.

With more than 800 languages, Papua New Guinea is the most linguistically diverse country in the world. Therefore, many language communities are multilingual. This diversity creates challenges to students who enter school speaking those languages but have an insufficient understanding of English, the official language of education. The government of Papua New Guinea began a formal reform program to address this multilingual education challenge as early as 1989.

An Abau literacy program that began with SIL involvement in 1990 has developed and grown to include a multilingual education program that transitions the students from literacy in the Abau vernacular to literacy in English.

The Joshua project reports that the Abau people are 98% Christian. The New Testament was completed in 2006.
