Description:Ruchon and Rufom talk about marriage customs of the Hrusso Aka. This conversation gives a glimpse of women's perspective on marriage. It offers insights on their attitudes towards marriage customs, and the duties and rights of brides, grooms and their families; A rich vocabulary of marriage-related nouns and verbs are found in the conversation. Recording conditions: This was recorded in somewhat noisy village surroundings, at Rufom's (the lady sitting with Ruchon) house. Some background talk, and on careful listening, constant bass thuds of a music system at a distance can be heard. Recording equipment: Sony PJ540 video camera for video, and one Audio Technica 803B Omnidirectional lapel microphone on each participant. The sound was separately recorded on Marantz 661 MKII and mixed with the video later using windows movie maker. The original video was compressed to ELAR requirements using Handbrake. Original recording settings: Stereo with 44.1 KHz sampling rate. Video filming and framing: Due to low light conditions the video is grainy. Against the current practice of language documentation, there is some zooming during the recordings - I was new to language documentation and yet to learn that zooming on the face and leaving out gestures isn't a good idea! ELAN transcription: In progress. Do not use till further notice.
