This project is to build a corpus of materials on the Fas (or Momu as it is referred to locally) language. Fas is spoken in Sandaun Province, Papua New Guinea. There are approximately 5000 speakers spread across 19 villages. Fas has the ISO-639 code fqs. Fas is spoken in the region between 3°03’10.25”S, 141°12’06.90” and 3°26’48.05”E, 141°56’52.39”E. The majority of work was carried out in Mori and Savamui village, in the north-east of that region.
