Description:Muring talks about her memories of gathering wild yams (pedebpa') and other vegetables as a child. The process of gathering wild vegetables is known as "mey merin". She also explains how to cook the wild yams in order to make food for the pigs. This involves cooking the yams until they are soft and, when cool, putting them into a bamboo carrier (or tega') and taking them down to feed the pigs. Today, it is more common to use rice husks (padek) or rice to feed the pigs. The following equipment was used: Zoom H4N, lavallier mic, wind gag, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens. The recording is in mono and WAV format.
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
