Two adult speakers of Marquesan aged 69 and 63 perform the object-object matching task called the Farm Animals game (Danziger & Hill 1993). Each interaction is played with two players, one being the Director (=D) and one being the Matcher (=M). Both players are seperated by a screen and gaze in the same direction. The Director has to explain an array of toy objects to the Matcher. The Matcher has to construct the array of objects by following the Director's instructions. The original task is a photo-object matching task; this sometimes showed to be leading to problems (due to the way the Director holds the photo) and the reference is not always clear.
