Description:30 minute long video recording, with ripped audio file. In this recording, Rose Kewin describes the pictures in the social cognition task. Recorded in Jessica's house, with Rose Kewin roughly facing the beach, with her back to the road. It is raining very heavily, but the audio quality is still ok. The video is very dark. The "family problems" task is described in San Roque, L., Rumsey, A., Gawne, L., Spronck, S., Hoenigman, D., Carroll, A., Miller, J. C., and Evans, N. (2012). Getting the story straight: Language fieldwork using a narrative problem-solving task. Language Documentation and Conservation, 6:135–174. They describe it as "a structured task for gathering enriched language data for descriptive, comparative, and documentary purposes, focusing on the domain of social cognition." The stimuli consist of 17 pictures, which can be organized in various ways to tell a story.
