The Splashcast below is an audio recording of Saifiddin Mirzoev reading a traditional Yaghnogi folk story. Saifiddin transcribed this story in 1990 in Zafarabad. The storyteller was Muhmadrasul who was originally from the village of Sokan in the Yaghnob valley.
I was originally going to have the Splashcast display the parsed and glossed text sentence by sentence in sync with the audio recording. But, I didn’t have time, so here is a link to the parsed and glossed text: The king and his water-man
By the way, if someone would like to add the parsed and glossed text to the Splashcast, I would be happy to give them a fine reward- like being added as an author on this blog!
