Abstract

This is a collection of 18 fully analyzed and glossed Karbi texts that were recorded between 2009-2012. All of the texts represent Hills Karbi varieties. The genres include less-spontaneous folk stories, but also (personal) narratives, procedural texts, as well as fully spontaneous genres, i.e. an interview/conversation as well as a stimulus-based narration of the pear story film that was told while the speaker was watching the film. The texts represent the main corpus of 'A grammar of Karbi' (Konnerth 2014).
