A Description and Documentation of Avatime
Description:The Avatime project aims to describe and document Avatime. The researchers involved in this project are Rebecca Defina and Saskia van Putten. The project included fieldwork in Ghana in 2008 and was completed in 2009. Outcomes of the project are: (1) audio and video recordings of different genres, of which 13,5 hours have been transcribed and annotated, (2) an Avatime-English wordlist, (3) grammar notes and (4) two Master's theses, one on the expression of motion in Avatime (Saskia van Putten) and one on aspect and mood in Avatime (Rebecca Defina).
Happy watched the pear film (Chafe, 1975) and then told Mawutor what she had seen.
English was the language of discussions and elicitation, Avatime was the target language
Happy retells the pear story to Mawutor
Mawutor is a student at the Junior High School in Vane, he grew up in Vane.
The recording was made using a Marantz PMD flash recorder. The recording is mono, 16 bit and 48 kHz.
Note this transcription is actually based on a review of the original telling in a transcription session with Sammy R0810221. The audio used in the ELAN file is of the R0810221 transcription session.
Note this text has been checked against the original R0810081 telling and adjusted accordingly, so it no longer exactly matches the R0810221 transcription.
This is part of the session R0810081. It was transcribed in R0810221
