Description:HYJ1, HGS1 and SUK1 chat to each other while SUK1 is preparing the next elicitation session. They talk about their health, such as water drinking habits, and when HGS1 mentions her past splenectomy, HYJ1 mentions the Jejuan saying where one says that 'someone has no spleen' when one wishes to say that somebody is heartless. SUK1 then asks the ladies about the classifier t͡ɕum (줌), which is used for measuring units of loose, uncooked rice, or handfuls of other, little-ish, round vegetables and cereals, such as little onions. They also teach him about the counting unit musʰ (뭇) which (also in Korean) is used to count cereal plants such as barley or rice seedlings, and wood sticks. tapul (다불/다발) is a counting word for other long objects bound to bunches, such as for hay. They then teach SUK1 about different types of measuring and ladling objects, t͡ɕakpak (작박), a little calabass ladle, and sʰolp͈ak (솔박), a bigger ladle, and tɛjaksʰeki (대약세기), which is a measure used to measure units of rice called tɛ (대). They explain that tɛjaksʰeki and t͡ɕakpak used to be used interchangeably by their relatives. Also, they mention that in Western villages (seen from Jimnyeong, for example in Sukkun) they say t͡ɕompʰak (좀팍). They reminisce in their memories about wartimes in the 50s, when people who didn't possess any workable lands suffered from starvation. SUK1 then asks them about sizes and structures of Jejuan house compounds. While SUK1 is preparing last bits, HYJ1 and HGS1 talk about people in the village.
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.
