Description:
30 minute long video recording, with ripped audio file. In this recording, Rose Kewin describes the pictures in the social cognition task. Recorded in Jessica's house, with Rose Kewin roughly facing the beach, with her back to the road. It is raining very heavily, but the audio quality is still ok. The video is very dark. The "family problems" task is described in San Roque, L., Rumsey, A., Gawne, L., Spronck, S., Hoenigman, D., Carroll, A., Miller, J. C., and Evans, N. (2012). Getting the story straight: Language fieldwork using a narrative problem-solving task. Language Documentation and Conservation, 6:135–174. They describe it as "a structured task for gathering enriched language data for descriptive, comparative, and documentary purposes, focusing on the domain of social cognition." The stimuli consist of 17 pictures, which can be organized in various ways to tell a story.
Village name is HiKatip. Rose's parents are Pauline Kewin, from Bipi, and Laurence Kewin. Laurence was a police officer. Rose was born in Moresby, and she has moved around a lot. She went to school in Naringel. When they came to Papitalai she was a young child. She and her mother did not speak Koro very well. They spoke mostly pidgin. Rose moved to Goroka to do grade 7, and she moved back and forth between Lae, Goroka, Moresby and Papitalai. She had many different jobs in these different locations. She married James Pokasuwi from Powat and they moved to Papitalai around 1992. They also lived in Manila, where he was ambassador. She married Rudy Wild, from Switzerland, in Goroka.
