LANGUAGE CONTEXT COMMENTS
"Kaera and Indonesian are both used in church, mostly depending on who is conducting the service: if it is a Kaera speaker, most of the service will be in Kaera; if it is a speaker from another language, it will be in Indonesian. Kaera is not allowed in school, Indonesian being the language of education."
"Kaera speakers currently live in the following villages: Abang Iwang (~1,500 [speakers]), Padangsul and Bibit Gomi (~2000), Matgomi/Weniwa (~50), and Tamal Abang (~2000)... The Kaera speaking region borders with Blagar to the north and south, and with Teiwa to the west."
