Description:This contains collated videos found in hru_1262_01 to 1262_09 in various stages of annotation. The full questionnaire is also archived here as "hru_1262_anu_final.pdf". each mp4 file contains a smaller chunk of the entire list covering question numbers mentioned in the file name (eg: hru_1262_anu_001-040 contains questions 1-40 from the pdf list). Each sentence is repreated two or three times. Each of these repetitions has been annotated. Annotations are incomplete and uncorrected as of now and should not be used. In the recordings the elicitor’s voice is faint. Therefore, please use the pdf questionnaire to read the sentences in English. Although the questionnaire primarily aims at eliciting basic word order of Hrusso Aka, the recordings are multipurpose. The mirror technique is used in video recordings so that they can be used also as a phonological resource. Anu, the consultant, has clear, relaxed and natural pronunciation with fairly minimal list intonation. One must remember that elicitations such as these do not always reflect natural language, therefore their use should be secondary to more natural texts. They can, however, be a great help in filling paradigmal gaps and testing the limits of grammaticality. The questionnaire was prepared by Thomas Small and Vijay D’Souza in April 2016, at St. Xavier’s School, Palizi, and St. Berchmans’ School, Thrizino, A.P., India, We used ‘Eutotyp’ questionnaire by Anna Siewierska and Beginning Morphology and Syntax, Benjamin F. Elson and Velma B. Pickett (1988: SIL, Dallas) for guidance.
