Description:GOH1 and BMJ1 chat about different things, ranging from the importance of doing exercise, to how GOH1 used to dive for seafood in the past. This conversation is especially interesting, as BMJ1 would usually be clearly identified as a mainlander throug her speech, yet people know that she's been living on Jeju Island for decades now, and GOH1 as a friend speaks to her in Jejuan, which is not the usual practise. BMJ1 on the other hand, speaks a very interesting mixture between Jejuan and the South Jeolla variety, resorting to South Jeolla prosody and morphosyntax, yet sometimes using distinct Jejuan morphology. This linguistic behaviour is very unusual for immigrants to Jeju Island who have come during recent years, yet it has been observed fairly regularly with immigrants who came to the island decades ago like BMJ1 did. Contentwise, this recording is interesting, as GOH1 gives us a rare insight into her life as a diver, and into every-day work during times when South Korea was slowly evolving into an industrial country. SUK1 is present only in parts of this recording, and most parts are unobserved.
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.
