Description:HSH2 tells SUK1 about her life, how she raised her six children, how she got to Japan in order to work, and how hard her life has been. Explaining how people used to raise children in the past, their discussion moves through a discussion of woven baskets that were very important during past eras, and how people used to put children into particular types of those baskets and sing lullabies while working (jeju0115-03-04). Later on, she explains where her health issues come from, and what kind of animistic customs people used to do in the past, and how she's been doing a few rites as a soothsayer herself (jeju0115-05-07).
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.
