Description:Nila and Moni are doing the Tangram Task. Recordings were made with two video cameras and two head-mounted microphones, indoors, in a fairly quiet environment. The recording was interrupted for synchronisation purposes after ca. 10 minutes. The session thus consists of two recordings, the first one contains cards 2-5, the second one 7-10. The recording was started with card two because card one had proven to be too difficult to begin with. Apart from explaining the task and a trial run no warm-up was done beforehand. Speakers did not appear to grasp the task and therefore the task was abandoned after card ten.
This sub-corpus contains recordings made during funding period of the DOBES project “Documentation Summits in the Central Mountains of Papua”. It mostly consists of stimulus based recordings, such as the pear and frog stories, space games, etc. It also contains some shots of daily life in the Eipomek village in 2014, and some elicited materials, mostly pertaining to prosody.
This task was developed as part of the "Prosodic and gestural entrainment" project (PAGE). The basic goal is to engage participants in a collaborative task, using both verbal and gestural means.
