This paper describes an experiment with “Basic Oral Language Documentation” involving students from three universities in Papua New Guinea. Students recorded, transcribed and translated a sample of oral literature from their ancestral language, using digital voice recorders. We report a variety of challenges and the methods we used to address them.
