We spoke to Jennifer Thorburn last week about the project she is doing in Nain for Memorial University in St. John’s.
She is conducting interviews to try and find out what makes English in Nain different from English in other parts of the Province.
Thorburn says the amount of interviews she reached was 27 interviews with youth, adults and seniors.
She mentions that the staff at the Nain Inuit Community Government office has been really nice for providing space for the interviews.
She says those who participate receive $30 cash after the 1 hour recorded interview.
She is heading back to St. Johns Friday February 26, 2010.
Interviews are taking place at the Nain Inuit Community Government’s town council building.
