Title:Conversation between Waniye and Imna
A video documentation and study of Suki interactive speech
Contributor (consultant):Nasi
Contributor (speaker):Imna
Coverage:Papua New Guinea
Description:This recording was made in the week that Aewe village celebrated Papua New Guinea's Independence since 16 September 1975. There were many sports activities such as rugby, basketball, volleyball and sprinting matches, and there were performances of drama and dancing. My adopted mother Waniye (left) is sitting on the platform underneath her house with a clear view on the playing field, and comments on the activities with her husband's mother Imna (right). In the beginning, Imna is playing with a children's (toy) bow. Throughout the recording, there are many reference to myself potentially participating in the sprinting, and to the camera. My adopted father Dennu (Waniye's husband and Imna's son) comes by and remarks on what he can see through the little camera screen: his son Linus crying, and Waniye eating sago. The recording is transcribed between 8:39.000 and 21:35.550. In this part, Waniye is breast feeding son Linus. When at some point Linus's friend Iksie (short for Iwana) walks past, the two women encourage Linus to call him by prompting him word by word. Iksie joins for a breakfast of sago pancake, but since he just lost a tooth, has difficulty eating and doesn't say a word. At the end of the recording, Imna reads from the New Testament with her new glasses. Linus is, again, encouraged to call out to a passer by. Recorded with a SONY HXRNX70P video camera and Rode Pro+ video mic. Video conversion (mts to mp4) and audio extraction was done with ffmpeg. The mp4 with "_xs" in its name is a smaller version of the same video file. Transcription & glossing are not at a final stage. Contact me if you have any questions. Do not use without permission.
Nickname: Iksie.
