Description:SUK1 went to HSH1 to learn more about her life. He was interested in learning about her occasional work as a soothsayer, and in learning about the spots in Jimnyeong which function as altar spots where people pray to spirits. They talked about her family and biography a bit, and then about instruments in shamanistic rituals, as well as the details about when people usually visit shrines in the village. Later on, they talk a bit about singing Jejuan folk songs together some time. No video recording available since it was the first time I was in a one-to-one session with this teacher and I wanted to explore our dynamics first.
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.
Born in Jimnyeong. As a child she apparently helped out as a Somi for a Shaman, and this is how she learnt about shamanitic rites and rituals, and seems to be knowledgeable in that respect. She still is called to do private rituals at some occasions, and is confident about her shamanistic abilities. As she does work that often seems to involve soothsaying rather than taking up the social role of a major village shaman, it is not clear what her ocassional profession actually is.
Main researcher of current documentation project, as of 2016, PhD student in Linguistics at SOAS London. German-Korean descent, got to London after his BA studies.
