Description:This story was recorded by Elena Kalinina and Ol'ga Birjuk in 2007. A first transcription and translation weremade by the team of Elena Kalinina, probably by Nina Sumbatova. In 2017, Brigitte Pakendorf time aligned the transcription, glossed the text, and checked the questions with Daria Nadeina. The story is about a grandmother who was phoning the hospital because her grandson was sick. She was waiting for a reply for a very long time. When they finally replied, she forgot that it was her who was calling them. At the end she could only laugh because of her own forgetfulness. // Этот текст был записан в 2007 году Е. Калининой и О. Бирюк. Это история о бабушке, которая звонила в больницу, потому что у нее заболел внук. Она так долго ждала ответа по телефону, что когда ей наконец ответили, забыла, что это она звонила. Тогда она начала смеяться над собственной рассеянностью.
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.
Worked in the kindergarten as teacher and director, worked as a schoolteacher, in a shop, and also in the village administration. Is very active in maintaining Negidal culture and the language.
