Description:
This elicitation begins with HYJ1 and HGS1 chatting about various things. HGS1 reports that in the past (at around 01:45), apparently people used to think of Jejuan as being the speech of the lowest of the lowest, and as an example, HYJ1 and HGS1 discuss the Jejuan way of saying 'Where did you throw that (away)?' (느 걸 어드레 데껴비언디?) for those situations when one leaves an object at a place without much attention, and then not being able to find it again. They say that on the mainland people don't say it this way, and HGS1 concludes that for mainlanders, this must sound fairly harsh and probably this is why Jejuan is regarded so lowly. Apart from this interesting glimpse into people's language attitudes, SUK1 asks the ladies about scrambling of constituents in clause linkages, the coordination of NPs, negation across clauses, the particle -sʰa and its function as a modal suffix, complementisers and SVCs, negation across clauses, tests for DS -taŋ linkages (which, as it turns out, are entirely misguided and a good example for acquiescence since DS -taŋ linkages are usually not possible).
This project aims at building an annotated audio-video corpus of spoken Jejuan with a focus on conversational genres, supplementing existing documentation of narratives and songs.
