Other commentsː The Morop people group is made up of the District of Iwur and the District of Tarup. It is located to the South, East of Oksibil in the southern foothills of the Pegunungan Bintang mountains. The Morop language crossed over into Papua New Guinea as well. Their population is not completely certain but from our surveys we would estimate 5,900 to 6,000 plus. However, the government of Indonesia has the Morop people listed at 16,000 plus. Much like the Nagi language to our West the Morop also use the word "nen" when answering the question “How many?” (quantity) of something. Numbers 1 through 3 are the exceptions.

  1. yopkit
