This fall my FLAS language work has focused on translating and transcribing conversations and stories that I collected in May at a Dane-zaa language workshop held in Fort St. John, British Columbia. Elders shared stories ranging from early contact with European settlers to how life has changed due to the gas and oil industry. These recordings are providing me with linguistic data for a phonetic analysis of tone for my doctoral research. In addition, I will also be returning these materials to the participating communities in the form of subtitled videos for their language documentation and revitalization efforts.
