The goal of the research in this data curation profile is to learn about the linguistic aspects of the Cheyenne language with a focus on semantics, pragmatics, and syntactic issues. The data is gathered from recordings of short stories or examples given in response to specific questions. The data management issues center around the early stages of her data. The researcher described a need for a technician who could help segment and transcribe the audio files and a need to apply metadata using morphological gloss that would make it searchable. Additionally, the data would need to be available in a publicly accessible, searchable database that allows for the download of segments. The researcher also expressed a need for the data to be preserved indefinitely.
