Title Ro'is Amarasi Wordlist
Description A 242 item wordlist in Ro'is Amarasi from the hamlet (kampung) of Suit in Buraen village (desa).

aazRO20141009_01-original.pdf contains the original transcription made during elicitation of the wordlist. aazRO20141009_01-typed.pdf and aazRO20141009_01-typed.txt contains a typed ‘phonemic’ version of the original list. Where the two PDFs differ over the presence/absence of certain segments (i.e. glottal stops) the typed version should be taken as authoritative as these have been checked against the recording which is, of course, even more authoritative than any transcription. aazRO20141009_01-TextGrid.txt contains an (incomplete) text grid file (open in a text editor and save with .TextGrid extension) with the Indonesian prompts used to elicit words. This can be opened in Praat along with the sound file to locate the recording of particular lexical items.
