Forest Enets

Chat from the boat

A very short recording in which a Forest Enets speaker chats away during a boat trip on the river. The man discusses the drying out of the river, the departure of good fish to other waters and the types of fish he caught in his nets.  

Recording: The text was recorded in Potapovo in 2010 by Andrey Shluinsky, Natalya Stoynova and Maria Ovsjannikova. It was transcribed by Natalya Stoynova with the help of Gennadiy Ivanov, and glossed by Andrey Shluinsky.
