Collection Descriptive Notes
From 1968-75 (at The University of Chicago) Victor Yngve videotaped experimental subjects to illustrate two kinds of phenomena: 1) "Forgetting" and 2) turn-taking in conversational exchanges. For some of the turn-taking experiments he used a split-screen technique in order to view the speakers’ reactions simultaneously.
Collection Technical Notes
[See the scanned text coded as "eng-yng-hstry-90" for precise information on Yngve's projects, his videotapes and the video equipment that he used.] This series of 12 (black & white) videotapes was dubbed at the LLA in 1995 from Yngve’s research tapes made between 1968 and 1975 on various kinds of reel-to-reel video recorders. For this reason the tapes had to be copied onto an up-to-date format for preservation. (Note: For the two earliest tapes no machine could be found to play them, so they were discarded. After dubbing, the remaining tapes were also discarded.) Only six of the U-Matics could be digitized: the U-Matic player being used for playback quit after #7, and Tape #3 was found to have deteriorated too badly. (Note: A possible reason for the deterioration is that only re-used videotapes of unknown quality were used for the back-ups.)
