DescriptionThis story was recorded on cassette tape on the day the event it reports occurred, or the next day.

These are two interlinear analyses of a narrative, one in English (JAP1R1I1) and one in Portuguese (JAP1R1I2). Each includes a free translation of the narrative at the end.

The interlinear format is structured as follows:
The first line of the interlinear text is orthographic. The second line represents underlying forms and morphemic divisions, the third line morpheme-by-morpheme glosses, and the last line a clause by clause or sentence by sentence translation.

Free translation: In contrast with the interlinear translation, which I have made as literal as possible, this translation seeks to communicate the meaning of the text in good English. Consequently, several changes are made: (1) some implied information is added; (2) participant reference (e.g. choice of pronoun or NP) follows English conventions; and (3) some repetition is omitted.
