Description:This bundle contains ten audio recordings of a noun categorisation experiment. A list of nouns was read out for participants to put in a frame 'my X' thus evoking different classifiers. Reaction times were taken and inter-speaker variation in classifier choice to test whether classifiers could occur with different nouns. The results of this experiment are detailed in: Franjieh, Michael. 2018. North Ambrym Possessive Classifiers from the perspective of canonical gender. In Fedden, Sebastian, Jenny Audring and Greville G. Corbett (eds.) Non Canonical Gender Systems. OUP: Oxford. Pp 36-67.
