Researcher: Well um,
Researcher: I think this is going to take some time,
Researcher: What
Researcher: Now, I have got most of these words
Researcher: From Bindie,
Researcher: in Garrwa, but what I haven't got is some conversation
Researcher: Eh?
Researcher: I think it'd be better if you could have a yarn,
Researcher: Or, you can understand, can you?
Researcher: Can you understand? I mean, supposing you speak Garrwa,
Participant: I can understand the language, yeah.
Researcher: You talk to-
Researcher: What I want you to do, I can sort of play it out, I can go out, and I want you to talk pretty fluently about something
Researcher: In Garrwa, for about five minutes, you see
Researcher: Then we'll go back over that text,
Researcher: Over what you- I'll turn the tape recorder back and back and then we'll find out what you said, I'll write it down, alright?
Researcher: That's writing down the tape. I think that's better,
Researcher: Now what I think I- as far as these words, we won't go any further because I can see that these words are much the same as Bindie, I remember, gave me,
Participant: Mm
Researcher: But I haven't got any of these words in Yanyula. So would that be okay, that if you have a conversation that we'll take.
Participant: Gotta keep it separate like (unclear)
Researcher: Yes yes, that's right, and then after that,
Researcher: When you've had your conversation, I've written down what you've said,
Researcher: We won't take too long about it, I'll go right through this with Eileen
Participant: Eileen
