Description:Rebecca asked Mathias to find some elderly Avatime people who didn't speak English that would be happy to be interviewed. He found three such people. Rebecca and Mathias sat down and discussed the questions to be asked, the main goals of these interviews were to get directions, past and future changes stories and to run the time in space experiment with people who didn't speak English. Samuel was the second elderly person he interviewed. The time in space experiment was designed by researchers at and affiliated with the MPI for psycholinguistics. It aims to investigate the how people map time onto space, for instance is the past behind, to the left or east of the speaker. The experiment consists of two parts. In the first part people are given sets of 4 cards showing a temporal sequence and asked to arrange them. In the second part the experimenter points to a place directly in front of them and fairly close by and tells them that this is the middle part of whatever sequence for instance midday or Wednesday in the sequence Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. The experimenter then asks them to point to the preceding and following times such as sunrise and sunset.
