Khinalug texts

Materials collected

During the field trip in the summer of 2007 in Khinalug, most of the texts published earlier in 1972 have been re-recorded as read by modern speakers. Some new texts were also recorded, such as a poem "Khinalug" by Rahim Alxas taken from his book; a dialogue on the history of the village; stories about Nasreddin. Those were recorded in both video and audio. In addition, some spontaneous conversations have been recorded (most of them in audio only).
