Description:This recording was made by E. Kalinina, S. Todova and N. Sumbatova from Anna Porfir’evna Nadeina in 2008. In 2018, Brigitte Pakendorf transcribed it in ELAN, glossed it, and checked questions with Galina Ivanovna Kandakova. A. P. Nadeina tells two anecdotes about an easy-going man of whom she and her friends made fun. Once they were asking him some private questions about his wedding night and another time they bound knives, pots, and little axes to his legs while he was sleeping. However, he could turn it all into a joke and did not take in as an offence. D.I. Nadeina is also present. // Эта запись была сделана Еленой Калининой, Светланой Толдовой и Ниной Сумбатовой от Анны Порфирьевны Надеиной в 2008 году. Анна Порфирьевна рассказывает два забавных случая об одном добродушном мужчине, над которым она и ее подруги не раз подшучивали. Один раз они стали задавать ему нескомные вопросы о его первой брачной ночи, а в другой раз они привязали разные предметы к его ногам (ножи, кастрюльки и маленькие топорики), пока он спал. Но этот человек умел все обернуть в шутку и не обижался.
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.
Anna P. Nadeina was born in October 1916. Her father was a Negidal, her mother, who died when she was six, a Nanai. She has only minimal education ("likbez", literacy school), and worked in the village bakery, as a cleaner in the school, and in the kindergarten laundry.She is the mother of Daria and Tamara Nadeina, Galina Kandakova, and Ljubov' Oxlopkova.
