Languages and language families:

The Muyu language is a Papuan language of the Ok language family (Trans New Guinea phylum, short: TNG). It is spoken by estimated 2,000 speakers in the Boven Digoel regency of South Papuan province, Indonesia. Currently, there is no transmission to children, which means the language is highly endangered.

Muyu exhibits some of the typical TNG features: SOV constituent order, complex verb morphology, complex predicates, clause chaining, tail-head linkage. Besides that, there are many other interesing features: verbal number (i.e. suppletive forms for singular and plural agreement), many demonstratives with a wealth of functions, oblique argument marking and optional ergative.
