Description:Daria Nadeina tells a tale about a boy who goes to woo three sisters and pretends to be terribly disgusting. The youngest decides to marry him nevertheless, and her sisters are full of envy once it turns out what a fine chap he actually is. Recorded in August 2006 by Elena Kalinina and Nina Sumbatova. A first transcription was made by Nina Sumbatova, with Galina Kandakova translating it into Russian. The recording was time-aligned in ELAN and retranscribed by Daria Bikina, who glossed the text. The transcription and glosses were checked and corrected by Brigitte Pakendorf in August 2017. Questions were checked with Daria Nadeina. // Дарья Ивановна Надеина рассказывает сказку про парня, который сватается за троих сестёр и притворяется очень противным. Только младшая из сестёр соглашается выйти за него замуж, и старшие в конце сильно жалеют о своей брезгливости, когда становится ясным, что жених – отличный охотник.
This project focuses on the documentation of Negidal, a highly moribund Northern Tungusic language spoken by at most a handful of individuals on the Amgun’ and Lower Amur rivers in the Russian Federation. The language comprises two dialects, Upper and Lower Negidal, of which the latter might already be extinct. The project will result primarily in an extensive corpus of interlinearized texts from the Upper dialect together with accompanying audio recordings.
