Asmelash is preparing land to saw bangá (barley). Passersby remark about the recording. Other than such distantly made utterances and initial description by Asmelash about what they are going to do, Asmelash and his cousin helping him are not engaged in much conversation. Further, greetings to and from passersby from distance and the calls/commands Asmelash and his cousin make to the oxen that carry the plough are interesting linguistic material.
