Description:CS counts mice in the picture book.
CS cuenta ratones en el libro ilustrado.
CS counts mice in a picture book with numbers from 1 to 10. There was an elicitation interview with the same speaker and the same book before and this was recorded, when the Baure team came to give the book to her as a present. The speaker started to repeat to tell what she saw spontaneously and it took a while to take out the recording device that is why the recording of her counting begins with the number nine only.
CS cuenta ratones en un libro ilustrado con los números de 1 a 10. Unos días antes ya había una entrevista de elicitación con la misma hablante y el mismo libro y esta sesión fue grabado cuando el equipo de documentación fue a su casa para regalarle el libro. La hablante espontaneamente empezó a re-contar lo que vió y me tardió en sacar la grabadora por lo que lo grabado empieza con el número nueve ya.
