In the Shadow of the Tiger captions transcript

In the Shadow of the Tiger

Documentary about life in the villages surrounding the Buxa Tiger Reserve in West Bengal (Shiltong, South Paro, North Paro, Rajabathkava, and Bothia villages). Villagers and government officials describe a project by the World Bank to create wildlife reserves for endangered species, specifically the Bengal tiger. Villagers struggle to grow enough food, and elephants trample their fields. They were told to resettle elsewhere, but refused to leave their ancestral lands. Selling firewood is a main source of income for most, leading to deforestation in the reserve areas. Government officials committed to providing infrastructure (irrigation, roads, electricity, fences) on the condition that villagers stop cutting down trees on the reserve. The documentary ends with a letter from Tileswar Rabha stating that the villagers have ended their communication with the Forest Department after they shot a villager carrying firewood.

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

These are analytical notes on the noun phrases that appear in the retelling of the Pear Story narrated by O. Bimola Devi. Each noun phrase in the text was coded for shape (full, pronoun, or zero), semantic role, morphemes present, referent (boy, basket, farmer, etc.), information status (active, first mention, old, previous subject), and clause type (main, subordinate). 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.
