Deposit contents
The documentation consists of about 500 files, including audio, video, ELAN transcription files, and summary metadata.

Deposit history
This deposit is the result of two ELDP-funded projects, FTG0025 "A first Kayardild audiovisual text corpus, with prosodic annotations" (applicant Louis Goldstein, Yale University) and IGS 0039 "Linguistic and ethnographic documentation of Kayardild" (applicant Erich Round, Yale University). The results of the two projects are complementary and have been combined in one deposit to maximise the coherence and accessibility of the documentation.
