|A Documentation of Bati Language and Oral Traditions
|Back-recording are those which document elicitation sessions between (a) consultant(s) and (a) researcher(s), based on previously recorded data. During a back-recording session, pre-recorded media (audio or video) are played back on ELAN, to both the consultant and the researcher. Playback of media files is carried out into smaller portions corresponding each to an ELAN annotation slot. Depending on the sound quality of a given slot, playback may be repeated two or more times. The entire process (playback and responses of the informant, as well as comments from the researcher) is then recorded from pre-set devices (digital voice recorder or/and camcorder
|The project to Document aspects of Bati language and oral traditions is an original idea of Dr Emmanuel-Moselly Makasso, who had initially surveyed the Bati speech area as part of a pilot research project granted by the Ministry of Scientific Research and Technological Innovation of the Republic of Cameroon. Based on the results of this pilot research which have revealed a situation of critical endangerment of Bati language and ancestral practices, the idea to submit a major documentation project to ELDP has matured. The project has eventually been submitted during the 2015 funding round with Dr Emmanuel Ngué Um as Principal Investigator, and Dr Emmanuel-Moselly Makasso as co-applicant. The project started in October 1st, 2015, and will run till the 30th of September in 2018.
|Bati is the elicited language, and French the eliciting language. In cases where code-switching occurs in the course of the recording, instruction is given to the consultant to signal this to researchers.
