Description:File 2018-03.002_A begins with G.K. Noble conducting sentence elicitation on Wapishana with Lawrence Joseph, originally written down on June 26, 1965, e.g., "How do you say [X]?" At 14'02" Noble begins checking Wapishana lexical data published in William Farabee's (1918) publication, covering the range of the alphabet summarized as "balata" (a sort of latex) to "bruise." Possible correspondences to unknown notebooks are summarized as "26/6 1-4: 23/7." There are explanations of variation, that Farabee was at times incorrect, etc. File 2018-03.002_B continues with Noble's checking of Farabee's data, as recorded on July 24, 1965, beginning with "bruise." At 5'16" Noble carries out elicitation on "Wapishana nouns which change in the possessed form from that in the unpossessed form." He indicates that "words come largely from the notes taken on the 23rd of July." The latter includes possessive forms like "owner of [X]." Possible correspondences to notebooks are summarized as "continues to call on 24/7; possessive forms 23/7 to 25/7; notes of 17/8."
