Summary of the collection

The collection will include recordings of Gun-nartpa speakers from a range of ages. The recordings will be segmented into prosodic units, and time-aligned annotations will represent interlinear and intonational information and translations. It is hoped that these annotations will enable further investigation of the interactions between verb serialisation, prosody, and event structure, and will be added to an existing annotated corpus of narratives and other genres recorded by the researcher in 1993-94.
