Analytical notes on noun phrases in Retelling of the Pear Story: Gopendro

These are analytical notes on the noun phrases that appear in the retelling of the Pear Story narrated by O. Bimola Devi.

This is one of seven retellings of the Pear Story coded in this way. The purpose of this study is to understand how these various factors affect the shape of noun phrases in Manipuri.
