Description:File 2018-03.003_A file begins with G.K. Noble working with Lawrence Joseph targeting lexical items with "exotic phones," as he describes them in metadata written on the original reel boxes. Retroflex phones are especially targeted, and Noble asks for Joseph's judgments as to the similarity between phones in different lexical items. They later transition into basic sentence elicitation. Possible correspondence with unknown recordings are summarized as "28/6-1 > 28/6-2." File 2018-03.003_B begins with the same configuration as the beginning of 2018-03.003_B. At 5'35" Noble inquires about terms for constellations. At 7'15" Joseph gives procedural text in Wapishana describing "Wapishana working together" (per metadata written on the reel box), with possible correspondence to unknown notes summarized as "29/0-1 > 30/6-2." At 10'15" Noble records "school girls" (see above) asking them for translations of basic phrases; one of them is Lawrence Joseph's cousin, name heard as Alem (possible notebook correspondences being "30/6-2>3"). At 14'58" Joseph speaks with a girl ("30/6-6"). In what follows, there are three breaks in the recording at 17'05", 18'33", and 19'51". According to metadata written on the reel box, this should correspond to four staged texts, "as in a store," "on hunting," "on Doris et al.," "on going to his field." (The possible notebook correspondences to these four segments are, respectively, "30/6-8," "2/7:2-4," "2/7-5," "3/7:1-4.") At 21'29" the date of recording is indicated as "Saturday afternoon, July 3rd," and sentence elicitation follows ("3/7-5").
