Collection Descriptive Notes:
Norman Cutler reads the slates (in English) while Richard Pon Arul does a fluent reading (in the formal style) of all 55 lessons from the text, A Basic Tamil Reader and Grammar (Chicago, IL.: South Asia Language and Area Center, University of Chicago, 1980). The text can be found in Regenstein Library.
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes are studio recordings done at the LLA in Feb.-Mar. 1980. In order to create a series of recordings less than 30 minutes long apiece, the 55 lessons were divided into eight "tapes". A form for granting permission to make copies is on file. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
