Masters are the tapes sent from the University of Wisconsin--Madison?; wound off onto hubs from the original seven-inch reels by JJT on 6/29/76. “These recordings differ from the final version in some idioms and follow a numbering system entirely different.”--from the Reel 2 box. Note: At the beginning of Tape 1 the speaker says, "Tamil lessons for second year". Note: the term "pilot version" was assigned to these tapes in 1976 by James Lindholm in his global survey of all the Tamil tapes recorded up to that time.
