intonation_4
Third attempt of CL to get intonational data on questions, declarations and imperatives by asking somebody to enact the prepared material. But as this instruction wasn't clear enough, WN just asked to read the sentences which caused some difficulties as people are not used to read the Totoli language. But because the sentences were reproduced several times some quite natural utterances could be recorded.
