Description:
In this video recording, women from Arepin came together to tell stories and riddles in Ikaan, Ebira and English in the evening. In between the stories, people are laughing and chatting. Some stories also have songs, which are often in Yoruba. As you can see in the video, the people were sitting on three benches in a circle, with the camera and the microphone facing them. In front of the camera as well as out of sight of the camera, children gathered around to listen to the stories. In the beginning there was still daylight, later it got dark and we used the front light of the house to give light.

Title Stories and riddles told by women in Arepin
For this audio recording, women from Arepin came together to tell stories and riddles in Ikaan in the evening. The audio recording was done in parallel with the audio of the video recording so that there was high-quality and low-noise data for phonetic recordings.
This audio track was extracted from the video recording of the story telling evening in Ayede to be used for transcription in ELAN.
This ELAN transcription of the stories told in Ayede gives the transcription of each utterance in an orthographic transcription, word-by-word glosses, English and Yoruba free translations and cultural and linguistics notes where appropriate.
