This corpus offers actual conditions of spoken Oogami-jima dialect in the north of Miyako mainland. The data items are arranged considering phone parallelism between Southern Ryukyu and Miyako dialects. Personal idiosyncrasy and generation difference are also considered.
The Karimata dialect spoken in the opposite side of the Oogami-jima is also contained as a reference material, because it has something in common with Oogami-jima dialect in its phonemic characteristics. Both of them are valuable dialects which are suspected to disappear in the near future.
