Helong - Dialect discussion

A free discussion about dialect differences in the Helong language. There are three speakers present, each representing a different dialect: Semau, Bolok and Funai. Funai is the most endangered dialect as it is the one whose original area is now occupied by the city of Kupang. (Captions pending)
