Ota Katupaan and Vensi Assa discuss the work they are currently doing in the village of Lolah. This involves felling, chopping, and removing coconut trees so that the wood can be used for making furniture or in the construction of traditional Minahasan houses. Video footage for this session was recorded on a Canon Legria HF R606. The .mts format has been converted to .mp4 using the Handbrake program. The audio was recorded on a Zoom H4n in .wav format using a Rode Lavalier microphone. This bundle includes an ELAN project (.eaf) file with baseline transcription, word-level transcription, morpheme-by-morpheme glossing, and free translation in English. The information in this .eaf file is intended as a preliminary analysis of the data. Additional analysis is currently ongoing with the aim of producing a more detailed description of the phonology, morphology, and syntax.
