Wendy (PS1S1) [114] Which are ... erm ... This is actually me being bored this afternoon.
Clare (PS1S2) [115] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [116] It might be an idea to just make a note of ...
Derek (PS1S3) [117] Jeez.
Wendy (PS1S1) [118] what the counties are that we're covering,
Clare (PS1S2) [119] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [120] and ... about how many words we want from each one.
[121] It basically winds down to about ninety thousand words from each county.
Derek (PS1S3) [122] [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [123] Erm ...
Clare (PS1S2) [124] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [125] but I haven't, because they haven't, broken down Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales into separate counties.
David (PS1S4) [126] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [127] Mhm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [128] Erm ... if you add all that up it comes to about three million words. [...]
Clare (PS1S2) [129] Great.
Derek (PS1S3) [130] Three million?
Wendy (PS1S1) [131] Yeah.
David (PS1S4) [132] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [133] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [134] Which is probably the most realistic estimate of what we're collecting.
Derek (PS1S3) [135] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [136] Erm although we may be collecting more than that, and we may be collecting less than that.
[137] I think three million is a fairly reasonable amount
Clare (PS1S2) [138] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [139] to assume.
[140] Erm
Derek (PS1S3) [141] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [142] ... don't want to be sort of too [laughing] enthusiastic about the number of words, just in case it turns out that they can't [...] [] .
Derek (PS1S3) [143] Oh erm ... [reading] Not Tyneside or Northumberland except for businesses [] ?
Wendy (PS1S1) [144] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [145] Ah.
[146] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [147] That's because Maureen erm
Derek (PS1S3) [148] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [149] has collected in those areas fairly extensively.
Derek (PS1S3) [150] Right.
[151] Er what you had down
Wendy (PS1S1) [152] And is going to carry on collecting in those areas .
Derek (PS1S3) [153] What you had down on the previous one was er ... schools and ... businesse Schools, businesses and something else, I think, that she'd collected
Clare (PS1S2) [154] No.
Derek (PS1S3) [155] from.
Wendy (PS1S1) [156] She she's collected
Derek (PS1S3) [157] Certainly schools and
Wendy (PS1S1) [158] from schools, erm the university,
Derek (PS1S3) [159] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [160] Erm I mean sh she ended up her description of
David (PS1S4) [161] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [162] what she'd collected by saying that she hasn't really gone to any
Derek (PS1S3) [163] It's just that ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [164] businesses, so
Derek (PS1S3) [165] er ...
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [166] [whispering] [...] . []
Derek (PS1S3) [167] I was thinking of asking Monica if she could record something from the the Model Car Club and
Wendy (PS1S1) [168] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [169] their club meetings.
Wendy (PS1S1) [170] Oh that'd be okay I think.

Derek (PS1S3) [172] Yes.
David (PS1S4) [173] Erm she's alread already asked her Dad but

Derek (PS1S3) [187] Fair enough. [whispering] [...] . [] ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [188] Erm anyway I mean that's just a guideline ... really.
[189] Erm ... I'm going to or I've I've started every time a recording comes in making a note of where it's from and what type of recording it is,
Clare (PS1S2) [190] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [191] and once I've got
Derek (PS1S3) [192] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [193] I've got the word count from each one I'll be able to sort of tot up and tell you when to stop collecting from that area.

Wendy (PS1S1) [195] We are.
[196] Erm which is good.
Clare (PS1S2) [197] Mm.
Derek (PS1S3) [198] Erm

Derek (PS1S3) [201] Excellent.
Wendy (PS1S1) [202] and told him to go away with it and think about what he could do, and er mentioned money to him, and he liked the idea.

Wendy (PS1S1) [218] I've given up on that idea actually.

Derek (PS1S3) [331] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [332] Who was it?
[333] Aaron I think was saying yesterday that it would be a good idea to get at least one tape of some erm stoned people.
Derek (PS1S3) [334] [laughing] Right. []
Wendy (PS1S1) [335] Because people use
Clare (PS1S2) [336] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [337] language differently when they're
Clare (PS1S2) [338] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [339] under the affluence.
Clare (PS1S2) [340] [laughing] Affluence. []
Wendy (PS1S1) [341] [laugh] .

Wendy (PS1S1) [348] What?
Derek (PS1S3) [349] a tape of somebody under the affluence.
Clare (PS1S2) [350] [laughing] That's the one, yes. [] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [351] [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [352] [sigh] After having hear his discourse on ... the wonders of interchangeable brain chips and the lunar landscape just above the ceiling border in thirty Road, I think he would probably be ... quite a good candidate.
Derek (PS1S3) [353] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [354] You'll ask him then?
David (PS1S4) [355] [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [356] Yes.
Derek (PS1S3) [357] Yeah.
[358] I
Wendy (PS1S1) [359] Right.
Derek (PS1S3) [360] I had other people in mind as well actually.
[361] [laughing] But er []
Wendy (PS1S1) [362] Well I I mean I was thinking you know er it's probably a good idea for for erm Well I've heard it proposed by people who do these things
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [363] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [364] that it's a good idea for when people are intending to get stoned in a heavy way to have a baby-sitter, so there's no reason why the baby- sitter couldn't sit there [laughing] with a tape recorder [] .
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [365] [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [366] [laughing] It's true. []
[367] Yes.
David (PS1S4) [368] Nobody else in the room is going to stop them.
Clare (PS1S2) [369] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [370] But the erm the best thing would then be for the when the these people came round again to listen to the tape, [laugh]
Clare (PS1S2) [371] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [372] and have power of veto over it.
[373] As always. [laugh]
Clare (PS1S2) [374] Oh yes.
[375] Yeah, I think they'd probably have to listen
David (PS1S4) [376] Ah.
[377] Yes it's a point.
Clare (PS1S2) [378] to what they've said because
David (PS1S4) [379] Point, they can't be under the affluence when they sign the consent form or [...] .
Clare (PS1S2) [380] Mm.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [381] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [382] Yeah.

Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [385] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [386] [laughing] Does he do that too? [] [laugh]
Derek (PS1S3) [387] I don't think he does but I can think of people who would.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [388] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [389] Erm ... well, I mean that that would be ... be erm
Clare (PS1S2) [390] Yeah.
[391] The other thing my father said when I was
Wendy (PS1S1) [392] ... interesting for want of a
Clare (PS1S2) [393] speaking to him was that erm the place he where he's recording in Scotland erm ... tends to have an unusual vocabulary.
Wendy (PS1S1) [394] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [395] Occasionally swear words are interspersed with functional words like it's and mine but [laughing] i it tends to be [] very heavily orientated towards the the less ... nice side of the language up there.
Wendy (PS1S1) [396] That's alright.
Clare (PS1S2) [397] So I said to him it was fine,
Wendy (PS1S1) [398] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [399] because you know the kind of material we're recording bad language isn't gonna get an appropriate representation, and he's not to worry about it on that
Wendy (PS1S1) [400] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [401] account.
Wendy (PS1S1) [402] But I mean that's entirely reasonable .
David (PS1S4) [403] Mm.
Clare (PS1S2) [404] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [405] Erm as long as we don't mind transcribing them, and I for one don't.
Clare (PS1S2) [406] No.
Wendy (PS1S1) [407] I mean I have met people who really objected strongly to transcribing swearing.
[408] Erm ...
Clare (PS1S2) [409] It wouldn't worry me.
Wendy (PS1S1) [410] But ... I don't
David (PS1S4) [411] [...] . [laugh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [412] Well, yeah.
[413] Well we're all young enough not to be bothered by it.
David (PS1S4) [414] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [415] I mean it's the obviously it's the
David (PS1S4) [416] That's true.
Wendy (PS1S1) [417] older generation that were brought up in under different whatevers,
Clare (PS1S2) [418] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [419] mores or whatever, that that would object to it.
[420] [laughing] And since I swear like a Navvy anyway,
Clare (PS1S2) [421] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [422] it would be hypocritical to object really. []
[423] [laugh] . Erm ... erm erm erm.
[424] Well I've sort of got a note to say who did what this week, so I could tell you what I've done this week and then you could tell me what you've done this week.
Clare (PS1S2) [425] That would be good .
Wendy (PS1S1) [426] Then everybody will know.
Clare (PS1S2) [427] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [428] Erm ... I've got lots of people collecting tapes on my behalf.
[429] The the careers service came up with two tapes which was nice.
[430] Mike came up with a tape, which was nice.
[431] Erm ... he claims the battery ran out before he got to his ... presentation on the course but I don't necessarily believe him.
[432] The battery was flat but I don't think it was a tape and half flat.
[433] I think it was
Derek (PS1S3) [434] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [435] This has been switched on all afternoon and left flat.
[436] Erm [laugh]
Derek (PS1S3) [437] Mm. [cough]
Wendy (PS1S1) [438] But.
[439] My Dad in Nottinghamshire has Nottinghamshire fairly sewn up.
[440] ... Which is nice .
Derek (PS1S3) [441] That's good.
Clare (PS1S2) [442] That's great.
Wendy (PS1S1) [443] Erm he's wandering around collecting [...]
David (PS1S4) [444] [cough] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [445] quite happily and enjoying himself thoroughly and not going to school, which I think are are three excellent things.
[446] Erm ... and my father-in-common-law in Liverpool is also running around frantically recording, but he's getting a limited variety of recordings, mainly educational.
[447] Erm have you made contact with your human in Liverpool?
Clare (PS1S2) [448] I haven't.
[449] I'm hoping he will ring me this afternoon.
[450] I ... this evening.
[451] I've left another phone message for him,
Wendy (PS1S1) [452] Right.
Clare (PS1S2) [453] so it's very much a case whether he actually gets in contact with me.
Wendy (PS1S1) [454] Good oh.
[455] Right.
[456] Erm ...
David (PS1S4) [457] [tut] According to the last reference I looked up, erm Merseyside erm ... is about [...] as big This is an old reference,
Wendy (PS1S1) [458] Mm.
David (PS1S4) [459] but erm a tenth of that No sorry, three tenths of that is on the Wirral.
Clare (PS1S2) [460] Mm.
David (PS1S4) [461] Which erm
Derek (PS1S3) [462] So that means we need thirty thousand words from the Wirral.
David (PS1S4) [463] My parents live in the Wirral.
[464] ... And they're taking a tape away on Saturday.
[465] A machine away on Saturday.
Derek (PS1S3) [466] Right.
[467] Excellent.
Wendy (PS1S1) [468] Do you want more tapes for them to take away?
David (PS1S4) [469] I've got ten.
[470] I've haven't used any of them.
Wendy (PS1S1) [471] Right.
[472] Erm I mean I can I Actually I haven't got all that many left, which I think is
Derek (PS1S3) [473] Sorry.
Wendy (PS1S1) [474] wonderful.
David (PS1S4) [475] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [476] Er but I mean tell them if they need to buy anything to get the receipts,
David (PS1S4) [477] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [478] then you can claim
David (PS1S4) [479] Right.
[480] [tut] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [481] ... for it.
[482] But I I've got to In fact I'll make myself a note here and now, I've got to talk to and I'll get them to send some more tapes.
David (PS1S4) [483] [yawning] Right. []
Wendy (PS1S1) [484] We can never have too many.
Clare (PS1S2) [485] No.
Wendy (PS1S1) [486] Ho ho.
[487] Erm ... [...]
Derek (PS1S3) [488] Well we could, but if we get too many we can go into business selling them or something.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [489] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [490] Well I think we have to give them back actually.
[491] They've got British National Corpus written on them.
Clare (PS1S2) [492] [laugh] .
[493] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [494] We should probably give them back when [laughing] we've finished with them [] .
Clare (PS1S2) [495] If you do end up with er an extra box of ten or something erm could you label them up for me?
Wendy (PS1S1) [496] Yeah.
[497] No problem.
[498] ... It's no problem.
[499] Erm ... [...]
Clare (PS1S2) [500] And [...] start the sequence as well. ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [501] [whispering] [...] [] .
[502] I decided it was a good idea to write things down rather than depending on the tape because erm I'm not actually going to get round to transcribing the tape quickly enough to use it as minutes.
Clare (PS1S2) [503] [laugh] .
Derek (PS1S3) [504] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [505] Erm ... Yes well I've got lots of people recording everywhere which is nice.

[543] [tut] This week, in fact tomorrow, I'm going to splash out an unbelievable amount of money and buy a transcription machine.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [gasp]
Wendy (PS1S1) [544] This transcription machine is going to be lent to be Derek and Clare, who can argue about who has it where and when.
[545] Erm [laugh] it'll come with a set of headphones and a little doohickey for er ...
Clare (PS1S2) [546] Mhm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [547] turning the output into mono because at the moment it's stereo and it'll only come through one earhole.
[548] Erm ... Cos most of the
Derek (PS1S3) [549] [laughing] [...] . []
Clare (PS1S2) [550] Oh!
Wendy (PS1S1) [551] Actually most these tapes are recorded in stereo aren't they?
Derek (PS1S3) [552] Yes.
Clare (PS1S2) [553] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [554] That's okay then.
[555] Erm I most of the tapes that I've had in the past have been recorded mono, erm and I've needed a little doohickey to turn the ... erm output into mono as well cos it's awfully off-putting spending seven and a half hours with the stuff coming in through one ear only. [laugh]
Clare (PS1S2) [556] [laugh] .
[557] Sensory deprivation.
Derek (PS1S3) [558] Doohickey being the technical term for this is it?
Wendy (PS1S1) [559] Yes, and I've no idea how to spell it actually.
David (PS1S4) [560] [laugh] .

Clare (PS1S2) [630] Interesting.
Derek (PS1S3) [631] So.
Wendy (PS1S1) [632] I hope it'll crash less often than the index [...] .

Clare (PS1S2) [665] Brilliant.
Wendy (PS1S1) [666] for the keyboard.

Wendy (PS1S1) [668] Yeah.
[669] Should be.
[670] Should be.
[671] And I'll check about discounts.
Clare (PS1S2) [672] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [673] And ... possibly buy some stuff myself if that's what necessary to get it over a discount price.
[674] [whispering] I also need some disks. [] ...
Clare (PS1S2) [675] I've done various things on my computer today and I can successfully make ASCII files.
Wendy (PS1S1) [676] Good.
Clare (PS1S2) [677] Reas reasonable sized ASCII files.
Wendy (PS1S1) [678] Good.
Clare (PS1S2) [679] So I reckon I could d do an entire transcription on Locoscript,t
Wendy (PS1S1) [680] Right.
Clare (PS1S2) [681] convert the whole thing into an ASCII and just ... pass you the disk .
Wendy (PS1S1) [682] Yeah.
[683] If you find yourself with a file that's big enough to manipulate but too big to turn into an ASCII file, cos it does use a lot of ...
Clare (PS1S2) [684] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [685] its processing to turn make a file into an ASCII file, don't worry, just give me the original.
Clare (PS1S2) [686] Okay.

Wendy (PS1S1) [695] [laughing] Which I don't approve of in the slightest. []
Clare (PS1S2) [696] Erm
Wendy (PS1S1) [697] But I'd prefer to get ASCII files
Clare (PS1S2) [698] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [699] because then I don't have to do anything to them.
Clare (PS1S2) [700] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [701] [...] .
Clare (PS1S2) [702] I'll bear that in mind because that will save me start splitting documents up
Wendy (PS1S1) [703] Mm.
Clare (PS1S2) [704] and and transferring each part of the document into ASCII files.
Wendy (PS1S1) [705] Yeah.

Wendy (PS1S1) [848] It's brilliant.
Clare (PS1S2) [849] Yeah.
[850] I was very pleased about.
[851] And I'm meeting with appropriate people in B R on Monday to decide when they will let me record.
Wendy (PS1S1) [852] Mm.
Clare (PS1S2) [853] And then it's just a case of providing them with tapes and tape recorders and they will wander off an and do the tapes for us.
Wendy (PS1S1) [854] Excellent.
Clare (PS1S2) [855] So that's good news.
[856] Erm my father received the recorder and tapes and is enthusiastic about getting recordings for us, and that's all set up for whilst he's in Scotland [...] next week .
Wendy (PS1S1) [857] How long's that going to be?
Clare (PS1S2) [858] Erm he's in Scotland for about the next month, but I've asked him to do the recordings in the next week.
Wendy (PS1S1) [859] Right.
[860] Then what's gonna happen to the recorder?
Clare (PS1S2) [861] He'll send it back to me
Wendy (PS1S1) [862] Okay.
Clare (PS1S2) [863] and I will probably ,
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [864] [...] .
Clare (PS1S2) [865] unless I hear from my contact in Liverpool, send it out to Manchester.

[869] Super.
[870] Erm did I say this last week?
[871] I may have done, I may not have done.
[872] When you send them send them Parcel Class but insure them for the ... top amount,
Clare (PS1S2) [873] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [874] which er it costs one pound something for [phone rings] the insurance.
[875] Erm it's about three quid to send them Parcel Post.
Clare (PS1S2) [876] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [877] That that seems to be the most reasonable way of doing it, rather than sending it registered,
Clare (PS1S2) [878] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [879] which doesn't actually do anything except tell you that it got there.
Clare (PS1S2) [880] That's right.
[881] Yeah.
David (PS1S4) [882] [...] .
Clare (PS1S2) [883] Er it does seem crazy to send them all round the country without insuring them.

Clare (PS1S2) [949] moment and so is out of our catchment area.
Wendy (PS1S1) [950] Right.

Wendy (PS1S1) [989] I'm ge starting to get a bit upset about not getting letters back from people.
[990] I know I shouldn't really cos I shouldn't expect them to come back at all, but [sniff] it annoys me when
David (PS1S4) [991] [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [992] you know three weeks ago I wrote to Scarborough College and the buggers haven't written back, even to acknowledge my letter. [sniff] .
Clare (PS1S2) [993] It's a it's a bit downheartening.
[994] [whispering] It's ... not nice. []
Wendy (PS1S1) [995] [...] . ...
Clare (PS1S2) [996] The one thing I wanted to erm bring up in this meeting,
Wendy (PS1S1) [997] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [998] which you you've obviously had a mind to because you've done the breakdown about the various other regions,
Wendy (PS1S1) [999] Mm.
Clare (PS1S2) [1000] is what we're going to do about start collecting ... in other regions, because we're getting to the stage where we've almost got North Yorkshire ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [1001] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [1002] wrapped up .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1003] I've been hoping to leave it erm and see what happens.
[1004] And what seems to be happening is that we're gradually remembering people we know in other regions and
Clare (PS1S2) [1005] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1006] starting with them as a basis.
Clare (PS1S2) [1007] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1008] Erm [tut] probably the most fair way to do this ... erm I mean fair to our friends and relatives in other r parts of the country, is to ask them if they could either send us their local papers or
Clare (PS1S2) [1009] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1010] a copy of their local phone book.
[1011] For which I'll pay.
Clare (PS1S2) [1012] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1013] Erm because those I mean the l a local Yellow Pages Or a local Thompsons actually, those are nice and narrow ,
Clare (PS1S2) [1014] Thompsons are better.
[1015] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1016] erm ... [laughing] and have postcodes in [] [sniff] Erm are very good ways of getting in touch with local organizations.
Clare (PS1S2) [1017] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1018] Erm ...
Clare (PS1S2) [1019] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1020] I mean I mean I've written a letter to my cousins in South Wales asking them if they can point me at ... any places that might record, but I'll actually make the contacts .
Clare (PS1S2) [1021] You've you've done South Wales have you?
Wendy (PS1S1) [1022] Well I haven't I wouldn't say I've done it, I've just [laughing] asked them to make

Wendy (PS1S1) [1024] asked them to make a contact.
[1025] I mean But by all means

Wendy (PS1S1) [1027] make more contacts.
Clare (PS1S2) [1028] Yep.
[1029] I can do.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1030] I don't think we have a problem We're not gonna not gonna have a problem with places getting asked twice.
Clare (PS1S2) [1031] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1032] Erm ... I don't
Clare (PS1S2) [1033] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1034] think that's going to be a problem at all.
Clare (PS1S2) [1035] I will try and get something like that brought up from North Wales
Wendy (PS1S1) [1036] Right.
Clare (PS1S2) [1037] at the beginning of next term because I know somebody in North Wales at the moment [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1038] Right.

Clare (PS1S2) [1042] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1043] On Anglesey and in Pembroke.
Clare (PS1S2) [1044] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1045] Pembrokeshire.
[1046] So ... you know Wales is a big cou big ... Well it's not a big country at all but it's big compared to a county, so
Clare (PS1S2) [1047] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1048] That was a positive response by the way from Scotland
Wendy (PS1S1) [1049] Good.
Derek (PS1S3) [1050] and that my parents have the thing, it arrived Thursday morning,
Wendy (PS1S1) [1051] Good good.
Derek (PS1S3) [1052] and er they're making recordings.
[1053] They've got in touch with the three people that they've got at
Wendy (PS1S1) [1054] Yes.
Derek (PS1S3) [1055] schools and they'll They probably won't manage anything in the next week because the schools are going on holiday at
Wendy (PS1S1) [1056] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1057] the end of the week,
Wendy (PS1S1) [1058] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1059] but they will be ... quite happy to make recordings er and so that's three different schools in the west of Scotland.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1060] Excellent. ...
Clare (PS1S2) [1061] When's the first consignment of Scottish tapes?
Derek (PS1S3) [1062] Erm ... don't know.
[1063] ... Don't know when they're coming.
[1064] But ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [1065] Right.
Derek (PS1S3) [1066] anyway, erm ... there will be tapes on the way and they're consulting with other people too, ... so. [clapping]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1067] Right.
[1068] When ... Actually I should probably mention this.
[1069] When tapes come into me I have a listen to the beginning and end of them all to sort of see what sort of quality they are [...]
Derek (PS1S3) [1070] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1071] erm ... and also to try and work out [laughing] which speakers are which []
David (PS1S4) [1072] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1073] so that I can check that against the form and get the form
Derek (PS1S3) [1074] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1075] back to people if I have a problem with it.
[1076] Erm where I find I can't understand the regional accent I'm going to give them back to the person [laughing] who recorded them []
Derek (PS1S3) [1077] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1078] and say Here, you transcribe this.
Clare (PS1S2) [1079] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1080] So I've got a feeling you're going to end up transcribing a lot of the north of the border stuff.
Derek (PS1S3) [1081] I don't think so.
[1082] But anyway.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1083] Well.
Derek (PS1S3) [1084] No problem.
[1085] I can do that .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1086] Erm
Derek (PS1S3) [1087] It's only four hundred thousand words. [laugh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1088] The younger the people get, I find that not wanting to be erm ... whatever, regionalist or anything like that,
Derek (PS1S3) [laugh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1089] but I find that Or ageist, but the younger people get the more problem I have with their accents.
Clare (PS1S2) [1090] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1091] Erm and the further west in Scotland and the younger they get the [laughing] more problem I have with their accents [] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1092] [laugh] .
[1093] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1094] I don't know why this should be.
Derek (PS1S3) [1095] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1096] [laughing] Erm but it's true. []
Clare (PS1S2) [1097] I mean one of getting round that is erm for Derek and I to transcribe them because then it's fairly easy for me to turn round and say Listen to this.
[1098] What did he [laughing] say [] ? [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1099] Yes.
Derek (PS1S3) [1100] [whispering] Yes. []
Clare (PS1S2) [1101] So that'll be
Wendy (PS1S1) [1102] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [1103] One way of working that .
David (PS1S4) [1104] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1105] Erm I mean that sounds seems quite reasonable to me.
[1106] Erm it also means that in the case of tapes that have come from your parents you're more likely to know one or two of the speakers and therefore have a less difficult time sorting out which one of these twelve
Derek (PS1S3) [1107] Actually
Wendy (PS1S1) [1108] speakers is ... this
Derek (PS1S3) [1109] I
Wendy (PS1S1) [1110] [laughing] person on the list [] . [laugh]
Derek (PS1S3) [1111] I I can think of a I can think of a few th of them who are going to be completely incomprehensible [laughing] to you [] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1112] Good.
[1113] You can have all of those.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [1114] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1115] And welcome.
[1116] We don't mind at all. [...] .
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [1117] [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [sigh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1118] Erm yeah.
[1119] I mean er ... I'll I'll still need them to come to me for er entering
Derek (PS1S3) [1120] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1121] into the books and everything
Clare (PS1S2) [1122] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1123] No problem.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1124] but then you can have them back.
Derek (PS1S3) [1125] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1126] Erm I don't know if I gave you, and if I didn't I need to, ... the things that I've called recordings logs, that are different than meeting logs.
Derek (PS1S3) [1127] Yes.
[1128] You
Wendy (PS1S1) [1129] Can you get people to fill Or f do yourself fill those in rather than the meeting logs?
Derek (PS1S3) [1130] Right.
[1131] I was I was
Wendy (PS1S1) [1132] Because
Derek (PS1S3) [1133] filling up my supply of each.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1134] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1135] Erm
Wendy (PS1S1) [1136] Erm ... unless it's actually a meeting ... that you're recording use the other things cos they're just they've got bigger spaces for writing down what people's first words were and stuff like that,
Derek (PS1S3) [1137] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1138] erm and I just find them easier to cope with.
[1139] I'm gonna check with ... whether we actually need to fill in a meeting log for every recording situation ,
Clare (PS1S2) [1140] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1141] or whether some kind of statement about who's there and what they're doing is enough.
Derek (PS1S3) [1142] Mhm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1143] Cos I think these meeting logs are a pain in the neck cos they've got ... the you know the boxes are about this big and you need to be a spider to write in them.
Derek (PS1S3) [1144] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1145] And a small one at that.
[1146] Erm ... and th the bit for notes isn't
Derek (PS1S3) [1147] And we wouldn't want any spiders around would we?
Wendy (PS1S1) [1148] big enough.
[1149] No we wouldn't want any spiders around.
Derek (PS1S3) [1150] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1151] Erm
Derek (PS1S3) [1152] Moving swiftly along. [laugh]
Clare (PS1S2) [1153] That's speciesist that is.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1154] Pardon?
[1155] Specieism.
Clare (PS1S2) [1156] Yes.

Wendy (PS1S1) [1186] Thank you. ... [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [1187] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1188] [laughing] It wasn't a very full list cos erm [] ... er it didn't occur to me until about seven o'clock this evening that I had to go out quite soon and then I just ran around frantically doing things [...] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1189] You thought it was still six didn't you?
Wendy (PS1S1) [1190] W erm no really.
[1191] Well ... it was still light so it hadn't di I didn't really realize how late it was getting.

[1193] [sniff] . Erm ... yeah.
[1194] So I'm I'm a bit unprepared, but that's everything I think that I have to say.
Clare (PS1S2) [1195] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1196] Can we go through ... Unless anybody else has anything to say? ...
Clare (PS1S2) [1197] No.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1198] Right.

[1200] ... Now does anybody know
Derek (PS1S3) [1201] [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1202] shorthand?
Clare (PS1S2) [1203] [sigh] Not that anybody else but myself could read back.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1204] Er I don't know shorthand but I thought y somebody who did know [laughing] shorthand would probably have a less hard time than I do writing down notes [] .
Clare (PS1S2) [1205] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1206] [laughing] Erm but it probably wouldn't [] make much difference.
[1207] Erm
Clare (PS1S2) [1208] I I've learnt the Pitman school but to a basic level and a long time ago and a lot of it is now forgotten. [laugh] .

Wendy (PS1S1) [1233] Right.
Clare (PS1S2) [1234] Which I will then turn around and put to good use, ... most probably in Manchester.
[1235] If you can ... let me know who you want me to write to or give me a source book to start

Clare (PS1S2) [1237] writing letters from I will also start on the letter writing for you.

Wendy (PS1S1) [1243] Where are they?
Derek (PS1S3) [1244] individual holidays.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1245] Are they the ones that are
Derek (PS1S3) [1246] They're right se behind beside the Royal Bank on the corner .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1247] The Royal Bank.
[1248] Yeah.
[1249] Thought so.
Clare (PS1S2) [1250] [laugh] .
[1251] And I will see if I can get erm a designer interview holiday consultation taped from them.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1252] Right.
[1253] Okay.

[1255] Cook.
Clare (PS1S2) [1256] Er no, without.
Derek (PS1S3) [1257] Er no, Cook.
[1258] There's no E there.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1259] Okay.
[1260] ... It looks wrong, somehow.
[1261] Doesn't matter.
[1262] I don't care.
Derek (PS1S3) [1263] That's the way they do it.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1264] [...] how they spell their name. ...
Derek (PS1S3) [1265] Er
Wendy (PS1S1) [1266] What are you going to do this week?
Derek (PS1S3) [1267] Transcription work.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1268] We hope. [laugh]
Derek (PS1S3) [1269] Erm ... we hope, yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1270] Probably not till till towards the end of the week.
[1271] Erm ... [tut] ...
Derek (PS1S3) [sigh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1272] Whatever.
[1273] Erm ... I've still got
Derek (PS1S3) [1274] Make suggestions for people I can go out and hassle in the first couple of days of the week.
[1275] Because I
Wendy (PS1S1) [1276] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1277] Until the Conference Office say yea or nay, there's nothing I can do literally there.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1278] Mm.
Derek (PS1S3) [1279] Until ... any of the other ones bear fruit, because the Guildhall I can't get anything on the elections till April the sixth, erm I can't get anything from the Scottish tapes until they start arriving, erm whatever.
[1280] So all my sources are in progress but
Wendy (PS1S1) [1281] Right.
Derek (PS1S3) [1282] nothing's about to turn up.
[1283] So suggest something and I can go some ... How about getting some tapes not in North Yorkshire perhaps?
Wendy (PS1S1) [1284] Yeah.
Derek (PS1S3) [1285] Driving over to Leeds or something if we if there's anybody we can contact over there? ...
Wendy (PS1S1) [1286] Erm it's making the initial contacts that's the problem.
[1287] Erm ... I'm I'm in two minds as to whether it's best to always write first or to to phone first whenever possible.
[1288] I think it's probably best ... er probably good to phone first but I'm ... erm worried about phone bills, ...
Derek (PS1S3) [1289] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1290] and how to deal them.
[1291] Phone calls made from non-local phone calls In fact local c phone calls as well made from my house can be made directly onto my business ... Mercury account.
[1292] Erm ... I've got a Mercury account at home and I've got it set up so that after the Mercury number you type in a user code, and one of my user codes is for the business.
Clare (PS1S2) [1293] Mm.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1294] So.
[1295] I'm quite amenable to people coming over and using my phone ... for making business-related phone calls.
[1296] Erm ... Particularly
Derek (PS1S3) [1297] Alright then.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1298] if those people also supply me with never-ending cups of tea and coffee while they're there.
Derek (PS1S3) [1299] [laugh] .
Clare (PS1S2) [1300] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1301] Cos that's what I live on during the day is never-ending supplies of tea and coffee.
Derek (PS1S3) [1302] Well ... I don't have any problem with [...] going out.
[1303] How about I could I could go down and just go to some places in Hull on spec.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1304] Mm.
Derek (PS1S3) [1305] Go into the University and see if there're there are any conferences there that I can ask.
[1306] Because that's not something we want to go through their Conference Office for if we only want to do ... a meeting,
Wendy (PS1S1) [1307] Mm.
Derek (PS1S3) [1308] something we'd just ask the people who are organizing the conference.
[1309] Erm I could go out to Harrogate and see if there's anything on the Conference Centre there,
Wendy (PS1S1) [1310] Mm.
Derek (PS1S3) [1311] or phone the Conference Centre [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1312] The the thing is Yeah, I mean anything ... Rather than travelling, telephone, because you have to run up an awful lot of telephone calls before it's worth driving over and doing it
Derek (PS1S3) [1313] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1314] in person.
[1315] And the the time involved in driving over and then wandering around the city ... is [...] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1316] Yes but if I'm doing nothing else Monday.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1317] Erm ...
Derek (PS1S3) [1318] You know.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1319] Yeah but if you could be doing other things, like phoning ...
Derek (PS1S3) [1320] Yeah.
[1321] ... Fair enough.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1322] F forty places
Derek (PS1S3) [1323] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1324] rather than Or phoning twenty places
Derek (PS1S3) [1325] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1326] rather than visiting three.
Derek (PS1S3) [1327] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1328] Erm ... I I was suggesting to Clare and David that wherever we do know people who don't live in this region we could get those people to, at my expense, send us a copy of their local Thompson Directory, ... which is an excellent resource for getting in touch with local businesses and other organizations.
[1329] But I mean it's a subset of the things that appear in Yellow Pages and also contains all the postcodes we're ever going to need to to use.
Derek (PS1S3) [1330] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1331] So anyone that anybody knows who lives anywhere,
David (PS1S4) [1332] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1333] get them to send their local [laughing] Thompson [] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1334] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1335] Erm ... and I'll ... refund the cost.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [1336] [laugh] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1337] I mean I d I dunno actually.
[1338] Is it possible to phone I imagine it's possible to phone B T and get them to send ...
David (PS1S4) [1339] Erm
Wendy (PS1S1) [1340] Directories.
David (PS1S4) [1341] Yes.
[1342] It is possible.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1343] Who does Thompsons?
[1344] Is it B T?
David (PS1S4) [1345] Erm no.
Derek (PS1S3) [1346] No.
David (PS1S4) [1347] I think Thompsons is [...] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1348] Thompsons.
David (PS1S4) [1349] But
Wendy (PS1S1) [1350] Oh.
Clare (PS1S2) [1351] Yes, Thompsons are separate.
David (PS1S4) [1352] there'll be a [...] Thompsons
Wendy (PS1S1) [1353] Yes.
David (PS1S4) [1354] [...] .
[1355] Erm you can There's a list at the back of ... the Yellow Pages on on Yellow Pages and phone books .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1356] For for f Yellow Pages.
[1357] Yeah.
David (PS1S4) [1358] Erm they're all up in the library.
[1359] I don't know if the Thompsons are in the library.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1360] Mm.
David (PS1S4) [1361] They might be.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1362] But it it's inconvenient to go to the library, write down lots of addresses and then come away again.
[1363] I'd like to actually have them on hand.
David (PS1S4) [1364] [tut] Erm you can't afford them.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1365] I can't afford Yellow Pageses or phone books, but Thompsons might be a different matter.
[1366] They might be cheaper cos
David (PS1S4) [1367] Yes.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1368] they're smaller.
David (PS1S4) [1369] Erm but there's more of them.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1370] Also Well ... here's another thing.
[1371] Anybody we know, can we get them to send last year's Yellow Pages and Thompsons, which won't
David (PS1S4) [1372] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1373] cost them anything except for postage and and won't therefore cost us anything but postage?
Clare (PS1S2) [1374] Yeah.
David (PS1S4) [1375] That's [...] .
Wendy (PS1S1) [1376] That's a good idea actually.
[1377] Let's do that .
David (PS1S4) [1378] [...] .
Clare (PS1S2) [1379] Yeah.
[1380] Yeah.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1381] Erm ...
Derek (PS1S3) [1382] Right.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1383] We don't really need to confer on who we're asking because I I'm I don't think [...]
Derek (PS1S3) [1384] If we get duplicate last year's Yellow Pages it's going to be such a problem.
[1385] I mean we'll have a spare one, yes. [laugh]
Wendy (PS1S1) [1386] Oh yeah!
[1387] I mean what a hassle.
[1388] We'll have to take them down the recycling.
Unknown speaker (FM2PSUNK) [1389] [laugh] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1390] Right.
[1391] Okay.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1392] You know.

[1398] I'll take down numbers I'll go to the library and take down num phone numbers and call places in the afternoon.
[1399] And I
Wendy (PS1S1) [1400] Right.

Derek (PS1S3) [1404] Yeah.
Clare (PS1S2) [1405] [...] .
Derek (PS1S3) [1406] Beep-beep-beep-beep-beep.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1407] It it's actually bee-bee-bee-bee-beep?
[1408] In that case I can give you my Mercury my business Mercury number and you can make phone calls on the company from here.
[1409] But only if I really really trust you. [laugh] .

Wendy (PS1S1) [1420] [...] . [laugh]
Derek (PS1S3) [1421] Well the only one that you have to worry about with me is if it it's a twenty-five-minute

Clare (PS1S2) [1426] Erm
Derek (PS1S3) [1427] Oh it's alright, they don't cost too much.
Clare (PS1S2) [1428] Would that apply to me as well?
David (PS1S4) [1429] What [...] ?
Clare (PS1S2) [1430] Because there's
Wendy (PS1S1) [1431] Have you got a touch-tone phone?
Clare (PS1S2) [1432] No, but I was thinking of using this one here.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1433] Yeah.

Wendy (PS1S1) [1435] Yeah. ...

Derek (PS1S3) [1442] [...] .

David (PS1S4) [1452] Aha.
Wendy (PS1S1) [1453] You need to put the S T D code in for a local call .
