Description:Elicitation session with Fo Yao looking into motion verbs. Transcribed by Saskia.Saskia presents Fo Yao with sentences in Avatime and asks him whether they are correct and if so what they mean. Fo Yao either accepts and repeats, changes or rejects the sentences. Sometimes he spontaneously comes up with a better way of saying the same thing. Sometimes Saskia asks for the Avatime translation of an English sentence. The goal of this session was to find out more about the syntactic properties and use of several motion verbs.Some English is spoken, the language under discussion and used most is Avatime.
