Description:David tells the story of when the animals hold a meeting to decide who is the biggest and strongest in the world. In KL they decide that the elephant is the biggest. However, in Sarawak the porcupine tricks the elephant into believing that he is the biggest because of the size of his quills. This is why there are no elephants in Sarawak. As for the strongest animal, the gecko puts himself forwards. When the other animals protest, he climbs up to the ceiling and tells them that he must be the strongest because he is the one holding up the ceiling to stop the sky from falling in. The following equipment was used: Zoom H4N, Lavalier Mic, wind gag, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens.
This is a project documenting and describing the Kelabit language of Northern Sarawak, Malaysia. It includes directed elicitation sessions and naturalistic texts in a range of genres, transcribed and translated in ELAN. The project was funded by a scholarship from the Wolfson Foundation
